Oh dear, Arion’s singer is really out of his depth in the jury performance, which is unfortunately the part that counts at ESC, however good the band is.
Just nerves? Or, as his youth suggests, underdeveloped vocal ability?

Out of all of em I think I like Arion – Lost In The Woods best, followed by Great Wide North – Flags. Not set in stone though. Have to listen to them a couple more times to really feel it but that’s my first impression.

I was also using the publication of jury performances as confirmation, but perhaps they are in different order.
