I’m quite used to being in a minority.  I was in the minority of the press centre that heard Il Volo bugger up their Dress Rehearsal when a significant and loud portion of Europe’s fan media decided that they didn’t.   This song touches me in ways that others can’t see.  To me, It’s the theme that a rather shit Bond Film from the late 70’s-80’s should have had – think a worse version of The Living Daylights – crossed with something that, again, I can’t quite put my finger on but I think it’s a substandard Adele track with the strings in the verse.  It’s totally irrational and I really should be trashing this and I know it doesn’t have a hope in hell of getting through it’s semi final but there is something about it that keeps me coming back to it.  I do think though that it would suit an adele-alike singing it though rather than a man in a Panama Hat= and a stupid moustache. 

Phil’s Score – A surprising 6/10

Portugal , In English, what happened? They were the only country you could rely on that they will sing in their own language. and suddenly they sing in English. Corona has strange influence on people.
This song is the ultimate toilet break of it is the song where everyone fell asleep when this is performed. That’s another way of calling this song boring.
and after that we have Bulgaria, who is not a song to wake people up, oh dear
