    Ukraine 2020 = Poland 2019
    Belgium 2020 = Belgium 2018
    Austria 2020 = North Macedonia 2020

    As a song it’s quite a good one. It takes risks and sound very current and modern. It should be high there in the songs that I really like. However his childish and a bit immature voice stop me from loving this to the full. I have some doubts if this would have sound live as good as it sounds in the video clip – Between MAYBE than a HIT

    Like Eurojock above me and like one of the judges in this podcast, my first reaction was that this is Poland 2019 all over again. I didn’t like the 2019’s Polish entry and I don’t like the this entry at all. Would it be the songs that breaks Ukraine’s 100% qualification record? I guess we will never know, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it would have – MISS

    It’s very Portuguese. It’s a little song which take it very easy and would have been forgotten by the time it ends. And was she singing out of tune in some parts of the song? If she has, this is not a good sign- MISS

    Austria –
    Not really doing it for me. There is a lack of power in his voice and I don’t feel any chrisma from him. It’s there to pass the time and it’s not something I would want to hear again – MISS

    It’s trying to be sophisticated but it sounds monotone. It has its audience, but I am not one of them. Somehow it doesn’t sound interesting enough for me to care for it – MISS

    It is a semi bond song. Just a semi bond song, because it miss the tone to excite you like a real bond song does.It’s a good song and yet I miss something which grab me and keep it interesting. It’s a sort of a song that you hear on the radio and you think, oh this is nice. Nothing more, nothing less – MAYBE
