Performing Loreen’s “Euphoria” will always be risky: how can you not come off as totally karaoke when compared to one of Eurovision’s biggest stars? So when faced with the challenge, Antal Timi, a finalist on Hungary’s X-Factor, tried to make it her own. The hilarious result is embedded below.

Antal clearly doesn’t share Loreen’s minimalist philosophy. Rather than paring down the performance, she writhes on the floor along with four back-up dancers. Later, when shrieking u-u-u-u-u-u-up, she and her dancers swirl their legs in unison.

There is also an LOL ESL moment. Rather than saying “in every breath I take I’m breathing you,” sweet Antal says, “every bread I take I’m pretty you.”

Antal isn’t the first X-Factor contestant to take on “Euphoria.” A Ukrainian contender had a go in September. Watch that video here.

OK, this performance really wasn’t her best, that’s a hard song to perform, and come on, she was just 18 years old guys -.- check out her performance with Celine Dion’s Surrender at the Bootcamp if you have chance and then you can criticise her… anyway she became second in the 3rd series and she TOTALLY DESERVED IT. here’s the link with her Celine-cover, but I highly doubt that it’s available outside Hungary. http://xfaktor2012.rtlklub.hu/video/180253

We’ve could’ve ended up with Rylan Clark murdering Loreen’s “Euphoria” on UK X Factor’s “dance week” last week. Fortunately, that didn’t happen but it would have been much worse than this!

OMG, my eyes are bleeding. Wait, what’s this? My eardrums have burst too. A very poor rendition of one of the best songs of the year.

Antal, you have no talent. I have seen better talent in a pork chop with more delicious results. You will never be a singer. To embarrass yourself, no I take that back, to embarrass that song with your performance is a travesty. This song will never be healed, you have indeed managed to kill Euphoria.

Don’t forget to vote for Loreen at MTV EMA (http://tv.mtvema.com/artists/loreen)! You can also vote from Facebook (www.facebook.com/MTVEMA), from your mobile internet, or from a mobile app downloadable at http://tv.mtvema.com

She’s up against One Direction and Afrojack which means she will need a lot of votes, and if she wins it proves Eurovision’s importance in Europe, meaning reluctant countries may return/not withdraw!

This Performance in some way botters me… her moves are ridiculous, and it looks like she just read the lyrics the morning before the show, this is just Horrible, nothing can compares to Loreen, the Ukrainian girl is kinda good, but this is bad in all the possible ways… a bad bad copy of a EUROVISION WINNING SONG!!!
