You can take the girl out of Eurovision, but you can’t take Eurovision out of the girl. Three months after finishing fifth at ESC 2010, Azerbaijan’s Safura continues to pout and pander to the camera as if all of Europe is watching.

In the video for her second single “March On,” she prances around two souped-up SUVs, vogues inside a cage and dances in an abandoned parking lot. Although she sings of soldiers and strength and perseverance, her facial expression suggests, “I’m easy. Invade me.” From a production standpoint, Safura reinterprets Destiny Child’s “Survivor” video: three women in camouflage grind in the city while singing about strength, and a gratuitous glamor sequence captures Safura with a leaf in her hair. You can compare the videos below.

Safura’s “March On”:

March On lyrics:

The battle has begun and we must move as one
Despite what we’ve done we can achieve
And yes we bleed and we scar
But we can’t forget who we are
Now we’ve reached the stars
We can’t stop believin’

We used to be enemies, now we need us
We’re gonna be backin’ up, backin’ up
And with every move, with every breath we take

We’re gonna march on, like there’s nothing in our way
We’re gonna march on, like soldiers – not afraid
Yeah, we’re carved in time here on the front line
We’re gonna march on on
Yeah, we’re gonna march, yeah, we’re gonna march
Yeah, we’re gonna march on

We know what lies up ahead up ahead, up ahead
But we push, push on instead
Of turning out backs on a friend
We begin to realise what we’ve achieved

We used to be enemies, now we need us
We’re gonna be backin’ up, backin’ up
And with every move, with every breath we take

We’re gonna march on, like there’s nothing in our way
We’re gonna march on, like soldiers – not afraid
Yeah, we’re carved in time here on the front line
We’re gonna march on on
Yeah, we’re gonna march, yeah, we’re gonna march
Yeah, we’re gonna march

1, 2, 3, 4, just keep marchin on the floor
5, 6, 7, 8, get up it’s never too late
8, 7, 6, 5, everybody come alive
4, 3, 2, 1, keep on marchin’, march on
Keep on marchin’, march
Keep on marchin’, march
Keep on marchin’, march on

We’re gonna march on, like there’s nothing in our way
We’re gonna march on on, like soldiers – not afraid
Yeah, we’re carved in time here on the front line

We’re gonna march on, like there’s nothing in our way
We’re gonna march on, like soldiers – not afraid
Yeah, we’re carved in time here on the front line
We’re gonna march on on
Yeah, we’re gonna march, yeah, we’re gonna march
Yeah, we’re gonna march on
