Here's The Roop's second effort
Does this mean Lithuania's entry is already decided?
Well yes. They’re having a National final but The Roop will win.
And don’t @ me if they don’t.
@Soldi not to be dramatic, but if someone else wins I’m going to kill you
Oh I thought they were already selected!
As for Discotheque, it’s a definite 11/10 from the SOLDI JURY. They were never going to reach the heights of On Fire but this is lovely and will probably finish top ten in Rotterdam.
It’s not as IMMEDIATE as On Fire but I think it’ll grow, although STRUCTURALLY it feels a bit messy. I like how UNDERSTATED it is, which could work with or against them considering how it’s staged.
I don't like it
I'm holding on to the dream that I Love My Bear comes back as a wildcard and wins the whole thing.
On first listen (to both of them), I think I like Discotheque more than On Fire but that could change. Both are fun though
My gosh it is so good. I thought it was good on first listen but repeated listens really work for this track. I can imagine a great stage show too.
we both know the world is not ready
On Fire was fine, but I LOVE this. On Fire was probably more competitive though.
On first listen I'm not really getting it. It has the hallmarks of a grower though, but it's brave to send a grower to Eurovision
On Fire was effortlessly cool and the minimalist take was inspired. This isn't as good. It veers on "kOoKy!" and annoying. Will be curious to see how it grows though. I do like them a lot.
Do the juries hear the songs for the first time during the rehearsal week (at least "seemingly") or are they all looning out at all the pre-qualifiers like Moopy?
I think that’s my beef. It doesn’t feel as spontaneous, like the brief was ‘just be weird like you were last year’.
I like this one, interesting structure.
I think I'm finding it catchier and more instant than "On Fire", but I can't decide if it's also slightly annoying. Never really got the fuss about them last year and doubt this will be near the top of my rankings but can't deny that after a couple of listens, the hook is going round and round in my head.
I like this one as well, quite haunting.
It's still strange to me to think it's her singing this.
I have the standard reservation about him singing about dancing alone while dancing with other people, but Jana demonstrated that's better than the alternative.
The Roop song does nothing for me on first listen, and being a SLOW BURN is not really in the spirit of Eurovision AT ALL, but I will bite my lip further until we have a performance.
On Fire is such a lost Eurovision classic, I love it SO MUCH these days.
At least we did get a LIVE PERF that indicated what it would have been like on stage, unlike cleoPATRA!
OH WAIT there is a PERF, and it's much better for me with visuals!
I LOVE the simplicity of the all-yellow alongside the chequerboard pattern. It could look really impactful.
You could argue that all the dances come across as a little bit desperate, but the lead singer is so telegenic I think they just about get away with it.
This is definitely going to win their national selection right? It would be SO CRUEL if not
Oh just seen the performance was posted above but I somehow missed it SORRY ALL!
Judging by last week's national selection, they'd have to be really unlucky not to. Fuck ME.
I officially LOVE THIS now, and I'm declaring the lead singer the hottest contestant* we've had since MAHMOOD You can tell he knows a SLAP OF MOISTURISER does the face a world of good
I had a proper moment of DANCING ALONE to this earlier
His expressive face is extraordinary.
I agree he’s VERY attractive and probably a better fuck than Mahmood who I imagine to be quite the LAZY BOTTOM.
Mahmood probably just sheds a tear, lubes up and FALLS TO SLEEP MID-ACT
Mister Lithuania looks like he'd be QUITE the RIDE.
(Also quite a lot like the guy from Hurts, if he'd had a single second of FUN in his entire life)
A quick RE-WATCH of the On Fire live perf confirms that they have no problem delivering the LIVE SHOW, it's borderline EXHILARATING!
SERIOUSLY Mister The Roop is so telegenic He could perform completely alone and it would be absolutely FINE!
OMG first Tia Kofi, now do I stan THE ROOP?
Oh. 'I love my bear' already got knocked out
We've put on tonight's live show, but might have come in near the end - anyone watching?
Surely "Evita Cololo" isn't a common Lithuanian name?!
Also performing to an iPhone mounted on stage is quite the flop gimmick if you ask ME.
Evita had a nice voice but they forgot to give her song a tune.
Oh Gabrielius, not a Burberry bucket hat
There are little Madonsters everywhere.
The panel sitting there with full face visors on
"Can't I just wear a mask?" "no. VISOR. It looks so much better"
Maybe it's promo for the Masked Singer that this unfortunately clashes with?
