i haven't heard anything official just that there is a strong tendency to 1 act. but could all be just hearsay, guess we'll find out soon.
Is LUM!X out then? Eberhard Forcher sounds off very frustrated by his DJ act having a plagiarized chorus but an overall amazing song.Apperently the new program director will decide on the song and we will have to wait until the end of january. It is only three songs left now and these songs seem to be of a very good quality.
Paenda was 3rd and last choice in 2019, when they lost Ruskaya and King & Potter. And Paenda didn't want to revamp her song, so it was a disaster in the making from the get-go.Or they are focused on a certain artist and try very hard to make it (not) work. Like with Paenda.
(I'm team Anger for now. )
Of course we knew it but Forcher talking about it in a way like that is still quite entertainingWe knew that Vincent Bueno lacked songwriting skills. We discussed it here before he even submitted a song for 2021. That’s really funny.
i am not sure if Anger is a great name for an international stage.
i'm actually a bit surprised he talks about several things so openly in this interview (without even being asked!) and i don't know if i find this a positive thing tbh. especially "imitating" that singer who did not want to sing the (supposed ) Lum!x-Song. I think he should stick to saying things like this to friends or colleagues but not in video interviews, sorryOf course we knew it but Forcher talking about it in a way like that is still quite entertaining
i agree, this is something that has manifested here over the years, so it's really hard to get artists behind this competition (and that orf has sent very manifactured songs by the orf creative team for many many years is a huge part of the problem imo).It's pretty sad how despite a win and a 3rd place in such a short time span Austrian artists don't really seem to see Eurovision as a worthwhile investment at all, based on all that backstage drama
is it his last year? i'm not sure. has he said that in the interview? (i honestly didn't listen to ALL of it, it was just too long for me so i skipped parts. also: what exactly did he say about Paendas Manager?)I also was a bit shocked about Eberhard Forchers interview. Some things he just should not have said in an interview, his words about Vincent Bueno, Paendas manager and especially how he talked about this potential female singer of the lumix song sound a bit contemptuous. Maybe it is because it obviously is his last year as esc-scout and he has nothing to lose.
I guess that the Lumix song is still in. I mean this is a real big DJ, how can they ignore him. But obviously he is not Eberhards first choice. I dont think he will make it but who knows.is it his last year? i'm not sure. has he said that in the interview? (i honestly didn't listen to ALL of it, it was just too long for me so i skipped parts. also: what exactly did he say about Paendas Manager?)
i think it depends a bit on the success of this years entry. if it gets like a top5 position i don't think they would change the concept but that's just my own assumption.
i have no confirmation of that but imo the (supposed ) Lumix song is still in the race, so saying what he said about changing the lyrics is not enough ect. is not really the smartest move if they might pick it in the end (i mean people will notice anyway, it is imo obvious indeed, but being one of the people in charge u should maybe not bash the song already in public)
edit: and it's not my intention to talk bad about eberhard forcher here, he is a LOVELY and very kind man and knows a lot about music, just to make that clear. i'm just not a big fan of some things he said here.
Vincent Bueno has released a new song with cute intentions. "Family fight" is dedicated to his ill cousin, who is battling cancer.
However, this song is another instance of his poor song writing skills. It is really bad. To me, it sounds like something R. Kelly would have rejected for his album in 1996. This song sounds soooo uncontemporary and bland. #cringe.
He is a singer and a dancer, but he really should let writing songs go for good. He just can't do it and if he thinks he can, he is conceited.#
