You aint seen NOTHING yet!
"This time with Pyro" has a whole new meaning now ... Jacques really does the first stanza of this song turning side by side singing both parts and being the campest thing you have ever seen. He's got backing singers and a cellist and a violinist on stage whilst he's doing this.
Then the fireworks start in the middle of the song as he does (what looks a bit like) some sort of Black Power symbol (he's wearing weightlifting gloves) ... and then at the key change there is a waterfall of fire and he goes for the big ending ... and then there is the background screen that shows flowers and rainbows and ... shit.
I've been coming here for 16 years and I can honestly say I've never seen anything like it. HRT are a competent broadcaster and THEY chose HIM and worked on this song for SIX EARTH MONTHS and came up with ... that.
It actually makes you want to go up to the HRT head of delegation and say: "What the actual fuck are you playing at?"
The press centre guffawed as one for three minutes as this ... thing was presented to us. But the worst part of it is, I don't know if it's a joke entry. Are HRT treating it as a joke? Does Jacques know he's being laughed at? Is it serious? I genuinely don't know.
One thing I do know is that it'll be played on those clip shows for years, and that's not a good thing.
