18 February – Like a mountain in the sky

Events are going off apace in 평창, so it’s only appropriate that today’s song has the lyric in the title of this post.

Back in 2013, we saw the advent of the rising performer. This was a singer who stood still during the song, and was on a platform that raised at a specific moment. Strangely, they were from neighbouring countries. This song from today’s birthday boy Florin Cezar Ouatu did slightly worse than the other song – from Moldova. Maybe it was his odd look, or the chopped liver he was singing amongst.

Cezar is 38 today.

La mulți ani, Cezar!
