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.
