He’s the outrageous Montenegrin diva who recently made a splash on The X Factor UK. Now Slavko Kalezic has been honoured with an impersonation on the Estonian version of Your Face Sounds Familiar.
On a recent episode of Su nägu kõlab tuttavalt, Eesti Laul regular Daniel Levi strapped on a power braid and delivered a move-by-move performance of Slavko’s Eurovision entry “Space”.
As well as the metre-long ponytail, Daniel also wore a replica of Slavko’s Eurovision costume, complete with a rip-away skirt.
He was serving full Montenegrin space erotica realness, and managed to capture both Slavko’s accent and his sensual dance moves.
The judges of Su nägu kõlab tuttavalt were feeling those pelvic thrusts. They awarded Daniel a total of 55 points, which made him the winner of the episode for the second week in a row.
But all this fabulousness didn’t go unnoticed in Montenegro. Slavko shared some thoughts on his Facebook page.
He told his fans, “It is my great pleasure that amazing singer Daniel Levi Viinalass won 1st place impersonating me in Estonian edition of famous world music show “Your face sounds familiar”.
Congratulations and I am honoured.”
Sadly the video isn’t available to viewers outside Estonia (*cries in Estonian*) — but locals can watch over at TV3. Or you can watch this one minute snippet uploaded by esc_estonia on Instagram.
This series of Su nägu kõlab tuttavalt also features Estonia’s 2015 Eurovision star Elina Born. In the most recent episode, she performed “Poupée de cire, poupée de son”, France Gall’s 1965 song that won Eurovision for Luxembourg.
Daniel Levi at Eesti Laul
Daniel Levi made his Eesti Laul debut in 2015, with the upbeat song “Burning Lights”. He made it to the superfinal of Eesti Laul, but was unable to beat the unstoppable juggernaut of Elina Born & Stig Rästa’s “Goodbye to Yesterday”.
In 2016, Daniel made an appearance as Estonia’s points spokesperson, then it was back to Eesti Laul earlier this year. There he competed with “All I Need”, which also made it to the grand final, but only placed ninth.
Entries for Eesti Laul close today at 3pm. While many stars from previous years have been spotted in the studio or at the recent Eesti Laul writing camp, it’s not known if Daniel Levi will be among those submitting for 2018.
What do you think? Should Daniel Levi take his Slavko style to Eesti Laul? Who would you like to see in the Estonian national final? Sound off below!
