Semi 1: 13 Estonia / Play
When I make my predictions I try not to be influenced by anything else than my own instinct, taste and backbone reactions. Especially I try not to pay attention to what "everybody" says. Easier said than done, but I try to.
Sometimes it is extra hard. In my book Jüri Pootsmann should be bang in the final with his classy and slightly Bond-esque "Play", penned by last year's Estonian representative Stig Rästa. For me, Jüri is cool beyond words with a slightly dangerous edge, like he had a volcano hidden in his chest, ready to erupt at any given moment.
It's just that too many people seem not to see what I see or hear what I hear. Could it be "Play" is not as easily accessible as I thought it would be?
Yes. I decided that I'm probably right and those other people are wrong. Jüri must be in the final and that's just it.
My grade: 4/5
