Vebooboo: After watching this three times on the big screen, I have three takeaways. 1) Dina can sing, but this we already knew. 2) The staging here is incredibly cheesy, especially the part where the five unite hand-in-hand at the end of the song. Again, this is not a Coca-Cola 1970s commercial, this is Eurovision 2013. Wake up with the times. 3) Pasty white people should not where pastel pink dresses — they are not flattering. We expected more from a Eurovision’s Next Top Model top contender. Seriously, Dina!
Wiwi: Dina is wearing salmon on stage. That’s appropriate because this act stinks like a rancid fish. She has a beautiful voice and an inspiring song. But the staging is beyond cheesy. At the climax of her song she and her backing vocalists hold hands and two of them throw balls into the audience. I hope the people on the front-row have insurance!
