Phil’s Eurovision Countdown 2019 – Part 37 – Slovenia

The songwriters clearly looked back at the last couple of years and said: ‘Belgium do depressed and seem to do well. Let’s have a go at that.’

And they have, but with less effect.

I know Zala and Gasper are supposed to be in love, but they look bored with the song; something which could be its charm, I guess.

She’s doing all the singing and emoting and he’s busy being the object of her desires, but in hushed tones rather than shouting ‘I LOVE YOU’ at him.

This, certainly, has its charms. It’s modern (like Belgium), it’s radio friendly (like Belgium) – it just … isn’t Belgium!

Phil’s Score – 5 points
