Will Paradise Oskar send the world spinning with “Da Da Dam”?

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?

Could everyone please just let go of the Tom Dice comparisons already? It’s not like most of the songs wouldn’t resemble something we’ve already heard and seen. Why aren’t people whining on how much Azerbaidjan this year resembles last year’s Danish entry (which, in turn, resembled Azerbaidjan 2009) or how Hungary 2011 reminds us totally of Albania 2010? Not to mention how Norway 2011 is so alike France 2010 and FYROM 2011 like Bosnia&Herzegovina 2010, and Turkey is just copying themselves from last year. Sounds ridiculous? My point exactly – so does comparing Paradise Oskar to Tom Dice every single… Read more »

Song is similar with last song from Belgium and stage is similar with Denmark 2000. Song is so boring (another borins song are from San Marino and Azerbaijan) and i think they will go to final thanks to juries vote like Belgium last year.
