Semi 1: 05 Croatia / Lighthouse
I'm so happy to have Croatia back in the contest! I hope they will remember how much they enjoyed competing back in the day and stick around forever this time. Not entirely sure that is the scenario we are going to see played out, unfortunately.
They picked a really nice vocalist and a really nice little song that compliment each other well. I like it every time I hear it. And every time it ends I forget it really quickly too.
In this line-up, bursting full with pleasant songs engineered to suit the airwaves, competition between songs of this brand will be fierce. And I seriously doubt being nice is good enough to keep you in.
No. Maybe there won't be much of a margin, but I fear Nina will end on the wrong side of the relegation line. Let's hope Croatia hangs in there regardless of this.
My grade: 2/5
