At Eurovision 2016, Ukraine’s Jamala rode a wave of emotion all the way to victory with her song “1944”. Serving other worldly realness, she defied genre — and the bookies — and gave us some spine-tingling feels. Of course, plenty of other acts left an impression too with some killer choruses and memorable staging. From Sergey Lazarev‘s technical smorgasbord to Dami Im‘s digital skyscrapers to Poli Genova‘s delightful chicken dance, a lot of these acts are lodged in our memory.
And then there are the others. As we scroll through the list of Eurovision 2016 songs, some are a bit harder to conjure up. Freddie’s “Pioneer”, Montenegro’s The Real Thing, Nika Kocharov & Young Georgian Lolitaz’s “Midnight Gold” — try recalling all of the lyrics verbatim right now. Told you so.
wiwibloggers William and Deban wanted to test how many of the lyrics and melodies they could remember while standing in front of a camera, and you can see the results below. It ain’t always pretty, y’all!
