After the delay to us seeing Macedonia, and their lack of pizzazz, Croatia dazzles from the first go. Franka is first framed in close up with a wind machine cranked up to Force Carola. She’s wearing a black lace and sheer dress, superbly sexy, with a stiff tulle train. It’s what Sennek should have been wearing for Belgium yesterday. She’s alone on the stage, but backing vocals can be heard in the mix, so she’s clearly pushed them out of sight. She’s done her homework, as this is excellently performed.
She has a little strut around the stage as she does her talking bit in the middle, then generally continues to deliver this extremely well.
I hadn’t rated this before, but this is absolutely good enough to qualify now. How this first semi-final continues to intrigue!
