Nathan Trent continues to captivate us with his stripped down, acoustic covers of various Eurovision songs.
After serving his delightful takes on “Heroes” and “L’essenziale” over the past two weeks, he’s now mesmerising the public with his unique spin on one of last year’s fan favourites — Amir’s “J’ai Cherché”.
Amir — a French dreamboat who took his nation back to the Top 10 — will be pleased to see Nathan pay homage to his song, and in such a classy way. It’s “J’ai Cherché” like we’ve never heard it before.
Even though “J’ai Cherché” was somewhat low key, one could still bust a move to it. Nathan takes it down another notch, and lets his voice and his feelings carry the song.
French might not be that easy to speak, let alone sing in, for a non-native. But Nathan proves once again that he can work that tongue beyond his native German and his fluent English.
We are definitely feeling this version!
There is still one more cover to go. What will Nathan do next week? We don’t know, but we can’t wait to find out. The boy loves singing, and we love him for doing it.
Kyiv is only a week or so away for the contestants and Nathan is probably packing his bags as we speak, and ready to fly to Ukraine to start rehearsing for the second semi-final.
What do you think about Nathan’s cover of “J’ai Cherché”? Is he melting your hearts like Amir did? Will he run straight to the finals, or run out of air before then? Comment down below.
