Let me be your halo
'Cause we've been through hell and back in only one night
Let me be your halo
'Cause heaven can't wait for us to finish the fight

We don't need a Hercules to bring a man down to his knees
No more apologies
Philosophers like Socrates define yourself, think on your feet
Go sharpen your teeth

We can be CEO
Yeah, you already know
Yeah, we can be the boss
Fly higher than the Gods
We're not under control
And no, no, not anymore
If you feel me, then put your hands up

Let me be your halo
'Cause we've been through hell and back in only one night
Let me be your halo
'Cause heaven can't wait for us to finish the fight

And I'm stronger than angels
I'm fearless in danger
And I will bring dark to the light
Let me be your halo
'Cause we've been through hell and back in only one night

I think I had the right idea
Beautiful, something to feel
For a hundred years
We're gonna be written among the stars
Posing so we're hustling young queens

We can be CEO
Yeah, you already know
Yeah, we can be the boss
Fly higher than the Gods
We're not under control
And no, no, not anymore
If you feel me, then put your hands up

Let me be your halo
'Cause we've been through hell and back in only one night
Let me be your halo
'Cause heaven can't wait for us to finish the fight

And I'm stronger than angels
I'm fearless in danger
And I will bring dark to the light
Let me be your halo
'Cause we've been through hell and back in only one night

La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la

Don't need no
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la


Let me be your halo
'Cause we've been through hell and back in only one night
Let me be your halo
'Cause heaven can't wait for us to finish the fight

And I'm stronger than angels
I'm fearless in danger
And I will bring dark to the light
Let me be your halo
'Cause we've been through hell and back in only one night​

LUM!X is a very smart guy. I think he learned a lot from this experience and the special circumstances of the ESC. I would like to see what consequences he would draw if he were to compete again. He now knows what not to do.

Seeing as you want to talk about poor scores
Honestly how much do you hate Halo or :at:, why do you continue with you bashing in this thread all the time?

I’m not too sure if he knows in detail what went wrong or what we needed to to better next time.

He didn't do anything wrong. Don't bring Pia + the team should've went full epilepsy with the light show. That's it.

Halo was in my top five for studio cuts this year I just couldnt believe you all claiming that Pia Maria sounded fine when she really really didnt, I just dont get this victim complex you all seem to have? You came 3rd very very recently (and should have won 2018 imo)

I like Nobody But You. But it wasn't a touching performance and a safe radio pop song with beautiful gospel parts. I like Halo, Limits and Amen better than NBY because these songs are more rousing for different reasons and none of them should have flopped. You shouldnt flop 2 years in a row when you are predicted to qualify. Even less when you beat the actual winner in fan polls and get trillions of clicks and downloads. Maybe their audience really is too young. There was no drama, no flamboyency, they didnt cater to the Eurofans a lot and the middle aged gays didnt fall in love with them. Pia is an icon, a legend and the moment. She sang 2m40 without breathing

In Austria, the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 grand final was the least watched since 2013. ORF 1 registered an audience of 503,000 and a share of 30.2%.

That explains the Televote for Germany

ORF was lucky that the counter programming of all the other channels were so weak that evening.

So, I think ORF was wary of Halo because of Pia's vocals, right? But I don't understand then why it was set in stone that only she would get to sing the song at Eurovision.

However, in the end this song faltered because of the staging. It was just really lazy and bad.

How much vocals matter can be seen in the dire televotings for the ballads this year. Most ballads were overrated af and not voted for by the televoters.

The staging was very, very disappointing. It looks very pathetic especially when you look at footage of people in the audience. Not much happens there. The cameras work and cuts were aweful.
It would have been wise not to feature one singer, but several singers who take turns interacting with Lum!x. Several singers because the song cannot be sung by one person alone. That is humanly impossible. Never again let an act perform at a pre event with poor or no preparation at all.

Marvin Dietmann's stagings lack dynamics. I mean Cyprus was equally tragic. Not sure what else he designed this year but it was a lot. Certainly not Spain.

I remember how Germany 2017 went up in flames with quite a decent song (that was hard to save), but with a staging for the elderly audience.

The only act I saw live on Saturday was the UK. I liked the staging very much. I think this was also Dietmann. I think it was the only staging he posted with pride on his instagram stories before the show.

Oh okay, but it was also kinda static. I was not extremely impressed by it. But good for him and his portfolio.
