Vebooboo and Wiwi do not agree about Paradise Oskar’s chances of victory in the first semi-final. Here’s what they say.
Vebooboo: Paradise Oskar’s skin is pale, but he’s a seriously strong dark horse in Semi-Final 1. The cute Finn sang beautifully and kept his performance blissfully simple. Can he follow in Tom Dice‘s footsteps and finish the first semi with a guitar in one hand and the winner’s tiara in the other? Maybe not. But his odds for making the Final have shortened since his rehearsal, showing that bookies have more faith in the shy youngster. And there will definitely be at least one queen in Dusseldorf ready to give up her crown for a bit of time in paradise.
Wiwi: Can someone please take the guitar away from Johnny Appleseed? As Vebooboo points out, this song is too Tom Dice—and no one likes a copy cat. The highlight of the performance for me is the LED screen and the massive Earth that rises from nowhere. Unfortunately this is a song contest, not one for digital graphics.
What do y’all think?
