This song is in my top 10, but I didn't like the Performance at all. The dancers are way too distracting and acting like morons. Waylon has stage presence, so why didn't he pull it thru alone like in the NF? THAT was impressive back then, but this one? Sorry, but not so much for me anymore.
Walylon is a big ol’ poser, krumping has nothing to do with the genre of music that he’s trying to associate with. Someone who was truly into the genre they are trying to portray would not be as ignorant as Waylon and team are being.
But yeah, there's no denying that he is a strong vocalist, but that doesn't change my opinion on the song itself. The whole performance I would say was competent, but very stiff and conservative (but then again I dunno what you could do with this entry other than this). It looked very much like a performance from American Idol. I knew he would qualify though so no surprise, will be interesting to see if it was the juries that pushed him the most though. My boyfriend, who isn't really into this whole Eurovision thing, liked it though. He likes rock so I wasn't surprised, he also enjoyed Hungary so But then he also likes Israel, Cyprus and Moldova (but probably because I forced these songs upon him ).
I was convinced after Waylon's performance that he had actually turned a likely qualifier into a miss. He took something that could have stayed simple and it would have been enough, instead deciding to take the performance down a very kitsch route. I was kind of puzzled but I guess it managed to work.
Well done Waylon. When I heard this song would be the entry for this year's Eurovision I had my doubts but the more I listen to it the more I like it and it does stand out quality wise from a lot of other songs. Good luck Waylon, either way your place in the finals is more than deserved
It was really amazing and it was certainly one of the best performances of the evening. But I absolutely don't get what these guys that follow him on stage are doing. It looks silly. If he doesn't end as good tonight, they will be the main reason for that.
