IMRI still has not learned how to say the word “alive” towards the end of the song – pretty fundamental as it’s the title of the song, and all.
The high notes that he attempts at key moments, it has to be pointed out, are not there. In fact, they are a long way off. Autotune – even if it were allowed – would not help. In fact in the second and third run-through, IMRI and his team were howling notes rather than hitting them.
That choreography. It looks tired to my (tired) eyes.
Having said all of that, though, it’s still a darn sight better than at least eight songs, which means that it will more than likely qualify on the strength of the overall package: good looking lad and that high energy feel. However, unless he tightens up the above I think it’s heading for a mid to low finish.
