This can be a big surprise on Saturday. This song is so beautiful, she is so charming and all together can bring the victory. Viel Glück Österreich.

I can't remember exactly but she said something like the strings and the beat didnt work well together and she didn't like the song.
Not really a hater, I know, but a doubter :p Maybe she likes it now.
I think she only criticized the staging of th NF. For the rest (song singing,...) she wasn't enthousiastic but she said that she loved it.

She was very sweet and looked so normal compared to most over the top performances.

I think people simply liked this sweetness in her performance. I have never liked this song too much, but she definitely deserved to go through easily.

Quite what I thought. I was glad she qualified over some of this bombastic performances. Maybe there is some kinde of shift to mere basic performances.

How many people will have gone off this song just by next week? Very repetitive, adding a disco beat after the start doesn't add that much.

Congrats xclap

I liked this song initially so I am happy to see that it's fairing (so far) better than I actually expected it. The song is cute (it's so sugary it becomes good lol) and Zoe did a good job, in fact I think she was probably the best vocally on the evening sounding almost identical to the studio version and no need for over-singing like half of the other bunch did. Though she looked like high on some happy pill, SLIGHTLY less smiling would actually be better in this case :lol:

Surprise but deserved qualifier. Background was too dark for this type of song. Good luck, Zoe!

Exactly what I think. There were so many serious OMG-look-at-me-I'm-fab acts last night that she definitely stood out, she was oozing genuineness and I guess it spoke to people.

It may not be the best song on offer, but she was one of the highlights of the night for me. She was happy to be there and emotional, that is the complete opposite of cold over-polished performances like Estonia, Russia or Iceland for instance.

I'm happy Austria qualified. Before the show, I didn't think Zoe could make it. After her performance, I thought she might be a borderline qualifier. I think her sweet staging looked quite nice in contrast to Cyprus.

It's great to see Austria in the grand final again. :)

Tbh I'm massively surprised how well she's doing on itunes :eek:
Same, I was shocked she even made it, let alone be the 4th best charting ESC song this year. Obviously the public were all over this entry, I suppose it looked great in contrast to Cyprus and some of the more overblown entries form earlier.

I am thrilled with Austria's qualification. 10 of my 20 votes went to Zoe. She was so sweet and one of my favorites this year. At Euro Club, she was almost in tears with the love and support she was receiving from the fans. I hope for a finish on the left side of the scoreboard but I'm just thrilled that she made it. Go Oesterreich, you finally figured out Eurovision, keep it up!

She proved to me yesterday why I used to ADORE this in the first place. I knew this had so much potential and I'm not surprised people liked it a lot. It's still so kitsch in a way, but it was very charming without the offputting factor. She was glowing and adorable and amazing and gorgeous. Just so genuine. And her vocals were FLAWLESS and effortless. I feel so bad that I ever doubted this after how much I supported it. Obviously people can feel the positive dreamy energy of this song and performance, so they respond. :) It's simple yet so effective.

I was the happiest when she made it, along with :hr: :D Such a sweet and cute song, I adore it from the very start but I thought it will not break through this incredibly difficult semi. Luckily, she nailed it on stage and charmed everyone :D I will certainly vote for it in the final.


This is actually the best :at: entry ever imo.
