Semi 2: 05 Belarus / Help You Fly
So there was no truth to the rumours that Ivan wanted to perform in the nude surrounded by living wolves? What a shame. This song would certainly have needed something dramatic to catch the audience's attention.
Just like Switzerland, this isn't really a bad song as such. It's just very featureless and indifferent. It just happens. It begins, it goes on, it ends. And would have needed someone far more charismatic than this young man to make it in any way distinguishable.
Where are the wolves when you need them?
No. Not good enough and surrounded by entries with somewhat similar dynamics this one won't stand a chance.
My grade: 1/5
