With a recently-updated video and polished production, Eugent sounds like one of the strongest performers at this contest. Shoot me, if I say I wish this was down to be performed in English - because were that the case, it would be a genuine contender for victory.

It's a strong song, that builds slowly to a genuinely great ending. The performance is outstanding - and I seem to recall it was equally strong live back at the tail end of last year when this was picked for Eurovision.

In its native language, and fighting to stand out early in the first half of the first semi-final, I fear this will miss out on a place at the final, and that's a shame as it truly deserves to be there.

(oh, and I have developed the most enormous crush)
