^ Agree (except for the for Barbara-Dex-thing ). The song is pretty bland though. I think she should buy a computer and make herself visible outside Albania on the internet e.g. upload some interesting Youtube stuff, doesn't need to be fancy.
Yeah, it grew on me quite a lot as well. Even though I still think its result is a bit too high, I used to totally dislike the entry, and now I must say that I enjoy it. However, still nothing beats Anjeza Shanini for me!
I can't quite understand the fact that she did so well... The song sure is amazing and her performances in Festivali i Këngës were extraordinary! I just can't believe how off key she was live in Baku :'(
I would never have bet that this song would have done so well, I was even wondering if it could qualify because I don't trust juries and viewers, they sometimes overlook great acts. I was on the verge of tears when Rona performed during the semi: her voice was so strong and she was so emotional as she sang for the victims of the tragedy that happened in Albania at that time.
To be honest, this is the best song performance I've ever heard in my life: it was honest, striking and filled with raw emotions. The song was wonderful - not your average ballad - sang in Albanian with meaningful lyrics... I mean everything was perfect. I loved Rona's looks and dress too.
I was so happy that she got through but I realized she got the 3rd slot in the final, which is not an ideal one. And despite that, she managed to reach the 5th place... I was shocked because I didn't expect so much support from both sides (juries and people). I'm glad that she gave Albania their best placing ever. Even if I wish them success in the years to come, I still think they will never top that level of quality. "Suus" is the best Eurovision song ever to me
It's quite a disturbing song at first. Loads of people can consider it quite screeching and irritating and that was a bit my feeling back to 2012 even if I applauded Albania for singing in its language.
However, it's a song that is wonderful when performed live. Rona seemed brittle and strong at the same time (even if I still hate her hair style)
The final performance of "Suus" finally reached 1 million views on Youtube. The chills are intact, I can't tire of this magnetic composition and interpretation.
Evergreen masterpiece and still the best song that ever entered Eurovision to me. I've been listening to it several times a day lately, and it's insane how it keeps enthralling me and stirring me to tears like it did when I first experienced it on that night of May 22, 2012.
Thank you Rona for bringing such high art to my ears and eyes.
