Same. It’s in the same league as Everyway That I Can, My Number One and Shady Lady (robbed, robbed, robbed!) for me.

I honestly prefer ''Toy'' over this but want neither to win (I hope that juries might give France some 100+ point advantage that is going to be enough to overrule any public vote).

The track is listenable for a week. The performance though... too heavily inspired by Beyonce... Helen seemed like a copycat to my eyes...

You forgot Lena and iconic Loreen :P Mans was good (although Il Volo were robbed) and Rybak (although not a fan of him) was loved by the public.

^attracting a lot of dislikes and hate along the way
I kinda feel this is like Bulgaria of last year, the hype for Kristian last year was so high, he was #1 in the odds till Friday and then along came Saturday and his odds started to drift.

^ but Kristian didn't get the same success on iTunes iirc. Especially not prior the final.

We'll see what happens. I think she'll be #1 in the GP votes. No idea how the jury will vote for this though.

Plus the 'winner' often gets lots of hate as well so all the dislike would make sense if she wins :lol:
