Well the first piece of good news is that someone at PBS has gone ” I know it makes you feel empowered, but you can’t win a song contest looking like that” – OUT goes the pink monstrosity which was universally panned and by some quarters panned Destiny herself, and in comes a silver number.
Seemingly Destiny has only done one televised run through, until she did a second, thanks for making me write this again! – It looks more coherent with her in the silver because the viewer now won’t make the instant judgements that we all know, but some people are afraid to say, and will focus on the singing. The song may be about Female Empowerment, there may have been a cynical move in the delegation in order to promote debate or she may have truly believed it mirrored the song but make no mistake this would have happened.
And boy what a voice she has got. She hit every note with purpose as you would expect and vocally it is spot on. This is back in the running.
