Yeah.... Pretty much....So there's a risk for Bulgaria's participation next year in that their sponsor is expected to pull out after Victoria's performance on 28th March
This morning brought the inevitable news that Eurovision fans were dreading - Eurovision 2020 has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 virus and will return in 20www.escunited.com
That would be completely silly IMO.So with today’s news of the EBU stating that this years songs can be re-entered for 2021 the official Bulgarian Twitter account has stated they‘ll be making an announcement tomorrow. I can see them withdrawing already..
Yeah, although I suppose you can somewhat understand their frustrations considering they were the favourite, not that the odds are ever a good indication of the resultsThat would be completely silly IMO.
All that talk of "we just want to be able to participate and to share Victoria's music with the world, we don't care about winning" back when they announced her just sounds like even more bull**** than before
Absolutely, I would be frustrated too if I was in the same position as them. But they have to understand that this is a completely unexpected situation, and the truth is that by 2021 everyone would be well tired and over the songs. They should instead focus in giving Victoria a new masterpiece because the girl herself has already shown that she is winner material, instead of withdrawing in a fit.Yeah, although I suppose you can somewhat understand their frustrations considering they were the favourite, not that the odds are ever a good indication of the results
I think you will find plenty of people here who can't stand Tears Getting Sober, let alone call it an ok song.I must be one of few who didn't think "Tears Getting Sober" was all that? Winner material really!? I mean it was an alright entry, but imho it was the weakest Bulgarian entry since their 2016 comeback. I understand when broadcasters want to follow current trends in music, but when an act just wants to sound specifically like an already existing one (= Billie Eilish) it's not just trend-chasing, it's identity-chasing, and I actually really like Billie Eilish's sound so I don't mind the sound, it's just very copycat.
Contrary to popular belief, I think Victoria can do better than this, and maybe during the year find her own "identity" as well, so while she and her team might feel bitter now considering the odds and polls, I think something good can come out from this is they play their cards right.
Oh, don't get me wrong, I find the song quite fine, I just don't find it THE best of the year...I think you will find plenty of people here who can't stand Tears Getting Sober, let alone call it an ok song.
I am of the opposite opinion, it is utterly brilliant and it not being allowed to compete is one of this years greatest robberies. I might see things differently had I ever heard a single song from Billie Eilish, but I don't really think so. I find it questionable to which extent someone resembles to others intentionally, and to which extent people find these similarities just because someone else with similar features is currently more popular. Take Barbora Mochowa - I think those of us who have checked her other non ESC songs can agree that here style has actually not that much to do with Lana Del Rey, she had just been gifted with a similar sounding voice. So what? People will sound similar, after all, there are billions of them on the planet.
Tears Getting Sober probably annoys those whose dislike ballads, and others too, I get it. In my ears, it is once again something quite artificial, just as the Beautiful Mess and Bones were - but this time, this artificial feeling corresponds to the theme of the song, at least in the way as I understand it. Technically speaking, Victoria = pure perfection, just as in KK and Equinox's case, there's just no fault to be found. But I feel Victoria's song a lot more.
So, to me, TGS is on the contrary the best entry since the 2016 return, an easy top 10 and certainly a contender. We will never know of course
Basically TGS kinda ticks almost all of the boxes - emotions, lyrics, melody, vocals, mass appeal, music video.It's not easy to come up with a much better song because ''Tears getting sober'' was already a masterpiece!
