Snippets are out on Facebook, sounds like our first fully uptempo entry.

I'm guessing the full track premieres in Friday.

I think Jessica could win this actually. This is one of her best songs!

The song is actually solid!

I've been a fan of hers for many years, and I'm not disappointed, it's up there with some of her best work.

Not bad but not great. It can do very well with the right staging.

It's definitely on the generic side, but I do like it and think it's better than most the entries I've heard so far.

Generic, but then it's expected since it's Eurovision and Australia. I like it though.

Number 1 on AUS iTunes

Is it the first ESC entry that goes straight to number 1 before ESC?

^ Yep but it's not surprising given her strong fanbase and how low iTunes sales are in Australia.

Not a fan of this tbh and far from her best. Can't see Australia win Eurovision with this.

The song doesn't really go anywhere, it's cute, but more as album track

Its not a bad song. Its just not amazing. Very middle if the road. I wanted more from her. Still it could grow on me!

I love this so much. My favorite Eurovision song this year.

Such an uplifting track. Only too long I guess? It's 3:22.
So after the last belt, she should stop at 3:00. Maybe that would be even better to make an impact.

Azerbaijan, Australia and Cyprus are in the same generic boat for me this year.

They wish they are in the same league.
Doesn't even come close.

Cyprus is a mega-generic attempt of a Z-list pop singer, something in the league of ''Touch My Fire'' (UK 2005).
Azerbaijan is a cringeworthy take on Katy Perry circa ''Firework''
Australia is a load of ''Love Love'' cliches, just a generic song in general. The cause itself if lovely, but the song could have been much better.
