Eurovision 2013: Romania: It's My Life

This year, Romania will be represented by the song It's My Life, sung by countertenor Cezar (Florin Ouatu).

Where do you start with this one? Every year, there is a song that polarizes Eurovision opinion and this is the one for 2013. Let me say, if I never hear this song again, it will be too soon. It's already scared the animals in my house and unlike on Bonfire Night, they'll be clamouring to hide OUTSIDE to avoid this. I might join them!

Opera has already proved to be less than popular at Eurovision and, in my opinion, this one has epic fail written all over it. Cezar seems harmless enough and no-one can deny his vocal ability. However, there is something overwhelmingly WEIRD about listening to a man sing so high that one might be forgiven for thinking that someone is trying to castrate him. Put that over a generic dance track backing and you have a recipe for hilarity.

I was wrong about Rylan Clark on The X-Factor, so I'll probably be wrong about this too. Both acts are memorable for the wrong reasons, but hopefully Europe will demonstrate more sense than the great British public.

Romania are the final act to take the stage in the second semi-final on May 16.

What are your thoughts on the Romanian song?

  1. Unlike Albanis's entry last year, I think this is one classical entry too far. I have yet to see Cezar nail the performance and vocals totally yet and his stage show has been gazumped by Aliona for Moldova in SF1, so it will look samey. It is a novelty having a countertenor in Eurovision but I think this will bomb.

    I do not expect it to be in the Final - if it is, it may surprise everyone and end up as high as 'Suus' did...


Thank you for your comment!
