Mo’s Eurovision Countdown 2019 – Moldova

Anna Odobescu brings a lovely slice of Eurovision nostalgia to the 2019 line-up. This is the sort of thing the contest used to major on, and I found myself liking it a lot more than I might,  had I heard this in any other context.

The video is well worth a watch for a dearth of unintentional comedy. Why is there a piano blocking the stairs? Are seat belts not compulsory in Moldova? Does Anna never lock her front door? And don’t get me started on the white rose/fruit bowl continuity gaffs.

But back to the song. It’s a traditional Eurovision ballad, and if she can reign in the hysterics when performing, Anna should acquit herself nicely. But I doubt we’ll hear this on Saturday.
