A DAL 2017 HUNGARIAN SEMI FINALS
We have a super Hungarian weekend coming up with two back to back semi-finals! 18 songs will battle it out over two nights, Friday and Saturday nights, for the 8 slots in the grand final next Saturday 18th February. So who’s left in the running, let’s take a look shall we….
Chase- Dust In The Wind
Watching this again I am left wondering how these vocals got through to the final! Oh yes, he’s a very pretty guy! The song is nice, but I think it ends here for young Chase
White Shadows- David Henderson
Another song, another cutesy guy. A much more commanding intro and verse, but the dub step, and white boy dancing… I think this will make the final
See It Through- Gigi Radics
Pretty girl in white dress sings theatrical ballad. Sound familiar? Yes I thought so too. It’s not bad, and she’s a good singer, but originality is zero here.
Fall Like Rain- Gina Kanizsa
I just find this dull, and once again, highly unoriginal. I think these songs have been plotted against each other purposely to keep the grand final more interesting
Origo- Joci Papai
I like Bollywood as much as the next guy, just not sure it has a place on the Eurovision stage in this instance… and there’s a rap…. Enough said
Cute boy part three! Now I’m convinced we’re in the sound alike semi. This is again, inoffensive, but I expected more from this as it was an early favourite of mine
Deak- Spoon 21
This is the current favourite. I don’t really get it. It’s boppable and will certainly stand out among this lot. A final cert.
Vege Van- The Couple
As a song, which I didn’t dig in the studio, this is very commanding. I enjoy this for its simplicity, and I believe her, something lacking in many other entries
Rain- Viki Singh
Another solemn lass. This is a nice song, but only just slightly more dramatic than the other two, in the same category. My pick of the three.
My pics for the final are
Vege Van- The couple, Rain- Viki Singh, See It Through- Gigi Radics and Kalandor- soulwave. But that’s just wishful thinking on my part!
