Semi 2: 18 Belgium / What's The Pressure?
How much luck can anyone possibly have? When the running order was set, I think the Belgian team broke the scale.
My opinion has not changed much since the Belgian final and I still find this a terribly disappointing song with a real let-down of a chorus. The only things it has going for it is a good arrangement - that makes it seem bright and energetic without really being anything close to that - and a sparkling performance by young Laura.
However, none of the negatives will matter now. Belgium will come bursting in with something that resembles tempo and attitude and close a decent but a bit too streamlined semi on a happy note.
Yes. It won't carry far in the final but on Thursday night this can't lose.
My grade: 1/5
