LITHUANIA 2011 - C'est ma vie

Finally someone with the confidence to just stand alone on stage! It's so annoying that so many insist on having the full complement of six on stage, even when it's clearly not necessary and in fact the entry might have done better presented more simply. Slovenia, a case in point.

This is a ballad, sort of on the operatic side, slightly. That is first and foremost thanks to the singer, who has a voice that's quite simply ... wow. Beautiful. There are so many performers in the ESC who can't really sing that well, so when someone pops up who actually really has a beautiful expressive voice and knows how to use it, it's kind of surprising. It makes you kind of sit up and take notice. Like France, you really notice France. ;-) And this song's title is in French ... !! OMG it's a sign!!1!

Anyway, where was I ... oh yeah, beautiful voice. Charming lady also, but hideous dress. Please change either a) dress or b) backlight. Great presentation for this song. Beautifully performed. A pretty song, lovely melody, but at the same time kind of anonymous. I mean, we've all heard more or less this same thing before. Her voice is the main thing about this entry, and I'm not at all sure that it will be enough. Alas. Good luck to them, but my hopes aren't all that high.

This is Evelina Sašenko performing C'est ma vie by Paulius Zdanavičius and Andrius Kairys. They will be competing for Lithuania on Tuesday, May 10th.
