One of the very few submissions to Moldova’s national contest O melodie pentru Europa is Sasha Bognibov’s song “My Lesbian Girl”. The eye-grabbing title is Sasha’s 13th attempt to represent his country at Eurovision. Could it be a matter of 13th time lucky?

Sasha Bognibov announced that he submitted the song for consideration on his Facebook page. Judging by the merits of the song alone, we’re afraid that the answer would be a resounding “No.” Moldova is known to bringing the crazy on the Eurovision stage, but not the weak. Despite the intriguing title and the provocative lyrics (“you’re my lesbian girl in a lesbian world”), the vocals are flat and the overall quality of the melody makes it sound like a joke rather than a serious contender for Eurovision, and it reeks of gimmick.

Nonetheless, how funny would it be if Moldova sent this? Wouldn’t Russia, who is not known for its tolerance, have a heart attack?

In related Eurovision trivia, Sasha Bognibov also auditioned for Moldova’s Got Talent show, performing Andrius Pojavis’ song “Something” which represented Lithuania in Malmö last year. In the preview, we learn that Sasha works as an English teacher and that one of his hobbies is to be photographed. Jump to the 1:17 mark for the live performance:

Unfortunately for Sasha Bognibov, he did not advance to the next phase of the show.

Are you surprised? And what are the chances that Sasha could advance to the semifinals of O melodie pentru Europa with “My Lesbian Girl”?

Moldova is not playing cards at Eurovision.
There was never a joke entry from them.
They send good music and good vocals.

All these being said… not sure why he is trying to represent Moldova when he may have at least some chance in UK, Austria, Switzerland, Ireland. Only if these countries make an internal selection of course.

13 attempts? Can’t say he isn’t trying.

The song has potential, though. Reminds me of Depeche Mode or something (not that I ever listen to Depeche Mode). If his command of the English language and his vocal prowess were better, this would be a viable track.

I doubt that anyone is worried that this song will get anywhere, aside from being “daring”, it isn’t much to listen to. And I had to hear if the English teacher in him was capable of singing the line “the other is pain”. Nope, Spain it was!

If Helen Keller would’ve heard this singer she would want to go deaf. Again.

“My lesbian girl” … something tells me Moldova will have lots of problems with neighbouring Russia and Belarus that together with all-time-beloved Ukraine has been signing petitions to get Conchita Sausage out of the competition. So is it safe for a country that every now and then needs those “12” coming from those three to play the gay card? I am amazed how Azerbaijan is not involved in this … probably too damn worried with the next Swedish composed pop song to represent the country and praying for the competition to return to their country as if that would repair… Read more »
