I fell in love, I fell in love
I gave my heart to el diablo, el diablo
I gave it up, I gave it up, because
He tells me I'm his angel, I'm his angel

Tonight we're gonna burn in a party
We're wild as fire that's on the loose
Hotter than sriracha on our bodies
Ta-Taco tamale, yeah, that's my mood
All this spicy melts my icy edges, baby, it's true
Tonight we're gonna burn in a party
It's heaven in hell with you

Mama-mamacita, tell me what to do
Lo-la-lo-la-loca, I'm breaking the rules

I fell in love, I fell in love
I gave my heart to el diablo, el diablo
I gave it up, I gave it up, because
He tells me I'm his angel, I'm his angel
Oh-oh-oh, el diablo, el diablo
I fell in love, I fell in love
I gave my heart to el diablo, el diablo

Tonight we're gonna dance in the moonlight
Droppin' our lashes on the floor
Hair flip-flip made you look twice
Touch me, touch me, mi amor
All this spicy melts my icy edges, baby, for sure
Tonight we're gonna dance in the moonlight
And then we're gonna do it some more

Mama-mamacita, tell me what to do
Lo-la-lo-la-loca, I'm breaking the rules

I fell in love, I fell in love
I gave my heart to el diablo, el diablo
I gave it up, I gave it up, because
He tells me I'm his angel, I'm his angel
Oh-oh-oh, el diablo, el diablo
I fell in love, I fell in love
I gave my heart to el diablo, el diablo

I fell in love, I fell in love
I gave my heart to el diablo, el diablo
I gave it up, I gave it up, because
He tells me I'm his angel, I'm his angel
Oh-oh-oh, el diablo, el diablo, oh-oh
I fell in love, I fell in love
I gave my heart to el diablo, el diablo

El diablo​

Since Duncan didn't mention any name in that interview and everyone assumes he means Elena, what does that say about your opinion about the Cypriot song?

He said Zara Larrson, which is what the initial furore was around the Cyprus video. Before Lady Gaga and Rita Ora and Fuego.

I mean I believe artists can express their feelings as long as they are not in Salvador levels of THIS IS NOT REAL MUSIC!!!!!!! and such

But would I ever miss the chance to hate on overrated generic sad boi with an unbearable piano ballad and his insufferable voice? Not at all xqueenbitch

No need to be this protective of Duncan, agree his remark wasn't his to give, and recently I found him being on a high horse as well xshrug I really liked him during his time in Tel Aviv and still love Arcade but I'm not really a fan of him anymore. Do not dislike him either.

Back on-topic, I found her rehearsal clip rather underwhelming, but qualification seems locked for :cy:.

In her press conference, one of the questions was 'Were you inspired by Lady Gaga with your performance?'.

One of the writers responded by saying, 'as one of the writers, I can say definitely, because one of the writers has written for Lady Gaga, so there is a natural connection to her sound and the sound of this song, and there is a lot of differences too'.

Yes sis Duncan's clown. 🤡

We felt it a long time ago... Totally not surprised, also who TF is Zara Larsson. Like who cares, his comment was so cringe tbh lol

I've just seen on Spotify that Panik Records has released Elena's debut album, which is a compilation that includes "El Diablo" and her older released songs.

Duncan's comment was so uncalled for.

Seriously, since he got engaged, he turned into such an a..... I mean, he was quite a down-to-earth guy, in my opinion, and at his concerts, he came up with so many great songs which didn't end up on his debut album (he even had a song which could have ended up on a Pink Floyd album) but dunno, it seems he's trying to be very artsy-fartsy, artistic and indie (all the new songs co-written by his fiancé are a snoozefest). I think he has lost his spark and his manners, it seems...OF COURSE, everyone can and should be able to express their opinion but he is the current winner of Eurovision and should've known better. Actually, I think it's totally alright to mention a few favourites of yours but coming up with a statement like "38 entries can win but not XY" is such a low move...it's borderline bullying, in my opinion, since he was deliberately throwing shade at one song in particular... especially when he's totally mistaken... "El Diablo" does not sound like that Swedish C-list. Gosh.

I'm so mad at him for expressing his uncalled opinion like this. He was my favourite back in 2019, I attended his concert, bought his EP and debut album and even though, I still like his music, I'm quite disappointed by his statement.

Elena doesn't deserve this.

I don't really expect originality in Eurovision (although it's highly welcomed if done right), and most songs aren't very original anyways, but there is a difference between that and so blatantly copy a specific artist and sound as this one does.

This is not a bad song per se (although I find it one of the weaker female bops this year), but it would be very odd if something that literary sounds like a 2009- Gaga demo ends up winning Eurovision in 2021... the sound is way too close in time to feel retro or a nod, which it could be if it would be entering in Eurovision 2029, now it is just a rip-off sound.

But then again Ava Max had a quite decent success with doing the same thing, so I guess there is a public out there for it that is really longing for early Gaga to come back.

Oh well, still prefer this than some of the others in the current odds top. 10 so yeah, it could be worse of course.
