We’ll give Zlata Ognevich this much: she can sing and she’s very pretty. It’s just a shame that her song “Gravity” says absolutely nothing.
Zlata sidestepped 19 other acts en route to winning the Ukrainian national selection this morning. Her vocals were amazing. But she belted out pointless lyrics such as Nothing comes from love but love/ Flowers are growing stronger/ I am running from above.” Say what? We’re still trying to transcribe the rest of the song. That English is her second or third language is really showing. She needs to do more than shout into a wind machine to get our vote.
Eurovision is a SONG contest, so I’m afraid I can’t get behind this one…
What do you think? Original and inspiring? Lame and out in the semi-finals?
