When Wiwi posted the official preview video of Romania’s Paula Seling and Ovi singing their entry “Playing with Fire,” you guys had some pretty strong reactions. A number of y’all said this would make the top 5 (assuming they add a bit of choreography), while others were tasting vomit in the mouth. “Soulless” wrote:
WTF.This pseudo electro/pop songs written in english just to reach fame and glory where is the country pride and more by avoiding their own language,they are making the lyrics simple ridiculous â€œyou and me cant you see we`re playing with fire, tell me now do you feel this burning desire â€ WTF is this ??
“promethea” questioned whether the duo actually knows how to sing live:
their voices are strongly manipulated â€“ I wonder if that is in accordance with ESC rules (live singing)â€¦
Fortunately, “ruxa” has come to the rescue and provided a video from Romania’s national final. Paula and Ovi actually sound a lot better live! Wiwi thinks that Romanian officials should promote the live video and not the promo. Compare for yourself below. (Note: Wiwi loves when flames of desire are replicated on stage with actual fire. Keeps the performance hot, yo!)
