Hello welcome to my series of quick takes designed to get you ready for Eurovision 2019. Just some quick thoughts / my take on each of the 41 songs this year. The countries are in alphabetical order so without further ado: Georgia.
Singer: Oto Nemsadze
Song: Sul tsin iare
Personal Score: 35 out of 41
My Prediction: NQ
There’s always one song every year that I just kind of…habitually forget about and this is the winner this year. I actually think some of that is the weird quality of the microphone at the beginning but this song is just not in my wheelhouse and the performer looks frankly confused on stage. I haven’t looked up the lyrics so I’m not sure what the song is about like most of the audience at home will be and I don’t really get much of…anything from the vocal or facial performance of Oto. I understand that this is basically tapped live from X Factor or whichever singing show Georgia uses to pick but that doesn’t really excuse mumbling at the beginning or the fact that the song just sort of rambles on for three minutes and then ends. I don’t know if there’s a staging on Earth that will help this song stand up against anything else in the competition and it pales in comparison with heartfelt pieces that countries like Albania and Hungary are bringing. It’s gonna be a “no” from me dog.
