Deban: Ott Lepland is a star. Unfortunately, he’s hoping to shine on the wrong platform. I like “Kuula,” but most people won’t. The staging is simple, and the lights work well, particularly in the distant shots. The backing singer is statuesque. She adds treble to his bass tones. Lepland is commanding and delivers perfectly. However, this is a tough semi-final. Although I’d like the voting public to echo my own personal taste, I fear that “Kuula” may end up being an overlooked hidden treasure.

Full points for lighting and backing graphics that complement and emphasise the movement of the song (escXtra footage shows it better). They need to transmit more of that to the televoters.
Ott’s delivery is so good that one almost forgets it could be otherwise.
