Wiwi: Klapa s Mora have a confidence problem: They think too highly of themselves. Ahead of their first rehearsal this morning, one of the vocalists said, “We are not neverous at all because we are all highly experienced.” Unfortunately for him this is Eurovision and not a village wedding or a karoke bar. Their Il Divo inspired act lacks charisma and they spend their three minutes on stage standing in place. They ain’t movin’ and neither is their song. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: Get them some Prozac or Dulcolax because they look depressed and constipated.

Vebooboo: When I heard the group was dressed like Croatian knights, I was surprised because there is nothing noble about this performance. This one is so bad I don’t even know what else to say. Needs. To. Go.

For all the people who think this song is boring – klapa singing is Croatian tradition. It existed way before Eurosong and it will continue to exist and be amazing. These guys are flawless vocalists, and if you fail to hear that, I feel? very sad for you. You probably know very little about music. The name of the contest is “eurovision” that should mean each country presents their tradition and their own language and not some wanna be english singer like it’s always…. come on….

Since the 1st apearance, Croatian song had an accent on “traditional”. This is a kind of traditional croatian music, a little bit modified for ESC. Originally, “klapa” sings a capella. That way you can hear and fell the beauty of voices in perfect harmony. I can understand that somebody do not appreciate this song, but before putting such a comment as: they need choreography, they look constipated, boring etc. I would strongly advise to put some effort and make some small research. Mr google, and Mrs wikipedia knows a lot about it. Here are some links: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Klapa ( about klapa… Read more »

If you educate youreselves first what Klapa is then you wouldn write such crap.
Yes this is Eurovision not Unesco protected Klapa song and we in croatia dont expect that such looser competition such as eurovision can understand music that is protected in UN.
Klapa do not dance. Klapa sing. Listen to the voice… Its ot a circus.Its music.

Based on the snippet I think they have made the right changes to their visual presentation. Better spatial arrangement, choreographed gestures, and costumes that enhance small movements. Lighting and backdrop need more work.

The danger of moving around whilst singing is that it might affect the performance vocally, and the juries WILL penalise for a dodgy performance on the vocals, so I definitely wouldn’t recommended it. See Norway’s Tooji last year.

Serbia’s Molitva in 2007 wasn’t a dancing song but they managed to make it visually interesting! They don’t have to DANCE but they can at least have SOMETHING visually appealing! Croatia has failed to do this imo

I can tell you guys aren’t constipated – talking lots of shit today! Its hardly a dancing song – so I wouldn’t expect too much movement – what do you want them to do – dance? march? Come on – you can do better than that. I suppose you found the Olsen Brothers boring too in 2000 – they just sat of stools and strummed their guitars.
