Amen, I guess
You said that it's time for us to put
Our love to rest
Dressed in black, you left my neighborhood

No, I never thought you'd bury me and you
No, I never thought we'd die

But amen, amen
Tell me, is this what you wanted?
Is this what you wanted?
Amen, amen
Tell me, is this what you wanted?
Is this what you wanted?
Amen

I bet it's just another funeral to you
But for me it's the end
A marching band are playing gone too soon

No, I never thought you'd bury me and you
No, I never thought we'd die

But amen, amen
Tell me, is this what you wanted?
Is this what you wanted?
Amen, amen
Tell me, is this what you wanted?
Is this what you wanted?

'Cause it all feels like you didn't even try
Oh try, oh try, try to save us
All this time wasted on a lie

But amen, amen
Tell me, is this what you wanted?
Tell me, is this what you wanted?
Amen, amen, yeah
Are you getting what you wanted?
Are you getting what you wanted?
Amen​

I am not an ardent follower of wiwibloggs, so I happily miss most things going on there. However, their jury score for Austria 2021 is probably the lowest I have ever seen.

Lol, really? 4.4? I see a pattern here. Belgium this year got a low 6. Wiwibloggs don't rate mature artists and songs. Maybe they should just focus on the Junior Song Contest. Bunch of people who never really grew up.

Wtf.

"Unfortunately for Ilse and Waylon, the calm after their storm is more akin to the silence after a nuclear holocaust."

Just tasteless and childish.

Thanks. I have had this buried in the back of my head. They have not learned anything yet.

However, Eurovision is cheesier and circus-ishier again. I mean in 2018 and 2019, more mature songs did not as good as they should have. Even with juries.

I also don't think that Amen is on par with Calm after the storm. I knew CATS would do amazing the first time I heard it. But I am not the typical Eurofan I guess, inspite of being so dedicated. Amen can do better than most people think, but it won't slay. It could also receive 0 point from televoting yet again.

Belgium is the obvious dark horse this year.

wiwibloggs.
Eurovision news with childish attitude. :ROFLMAO:


random child at wiwibloggs said:
Natalie: I can respect Vincent’s vocal talents as much as anyone, but I find this song so repetitive and uninteresting. It doesn’t go anywhere, it doesn’t offer anything fresh or compelling, and his repeated lines “Is this what you wanted?” just come across as whining to me in the end. Like… I kinda don’t see why I’m supposed to care? I kinda just want to move to the next song? There are quite a few male-fronted ballads this year, and of them all, this one is one of my least favourite.

This critique reminds of 99% of what random people without any qualification but entitlement to their opinion and of course taste say anyways about any song. It's just astounding how some people manage to get their vapid opinions exposed like that and others don't. (Not that I want to myself, I am exposed already on this forum enough).

Yeah, girl, so you don't care about this song. What's the news? Why should we read about that? I'd rather have people rating 2/10 without making unsubstantial excuses. This critique doesn't got anywhere, doesn't offer any fresh insight and is just a boring repetition of so many. I kinda wanna move on to the next criique, but Wiwilliam did not publish his, so hers is probably my least favourite.

Deban has an interesting point that I can agree with. Amen is very OneRepublic but not as engaging probably.

I hadn't read Natalie's review (I don't read and watch much of Wiwi actually cause I just don't like their behaviour), but it doesn't go anywhere. If she at least would have given some substantial points on why she doesn't like the song. Fresh? Compelling? Neither is her critics. *yawn*

I watched the video too and it doesn't match with their website score, video was very positive :D They hyped it so much.. So Austrians perhaps you can be happy.. you can expect their support in Rotterdam. Adams family loved it! And everyone thought it would qualify :D

By the way we can watch Vincents first live performance of AMEN on a big stage on friday 30 april in Starmania 21.
Vincent will perform his song “Amen” in a live piano version.

Do you know when exactly?
Unfortunately, no. But I will try to upload it. Depends on whether there is a special agreement between ORF and EBU for that part of the show.

At least they didn't make the mistake of burning the piano down.
not sure if it was a good idea to put that version on stage. that was a bit underwhelming. perhaps the song is not strong enough for a piano version.
