22 October – I’m on my knees for you

I expect today’s title may have caught your interest. It’s an important thing to get that killer lyric that will draw your casual televoter in. This one did back in 2012.

But there wasn’t just this clause sung by today’s birthday boy Donny Montell (né Donatas Montvydas). He had some other tricks up his sleeve. After all, have you ever seen a singer on a Eurovision stage in a blindfold? Maybe. Well has this blindfold been all sparkly? I suspect not. And if that wasn’t enough, he pulled off one of the greatest moves ever seen. According to Mr Hacksaw of this parish anyway. And who would argue with him? Not this Riigi, that’s for sure. But how did this plethora do for Mr Montell? Third in his semi-final and 14th in the Grand Final. And Lithuania lived hom so much they got him back a few years later. Is this his better song? I think so.

Donny is 31 today.

Su gimtadieniu, Donny!
