Back at Eurovision 2011 Aurela Gaçe and Emmy were two very different artists. One was a rock chick with a pair of lungs which even Florence Welch would be jealous of, the other a cheeky bubble gum pop princess. Unfortunately Europe liked neither of them, as they both failed to qualify from the first semi final.
Two years later Aurela and Emmy are back with new songs – “Dua” and “Tsiatsan/Qez Gta”. The ladies have taken the hints and ditched the styles which they showcased in Düsseldorf. The only thing is they’ve both decided to become Eurodance divas. Awkward!
But which song is better? Since I speak neither Albanian nor Armenian I have no choice but to judge the songs solely on how they sound. And for me I would have to opt with Emmy. Mind you, there’s not a lot of difference. Both songs are heavy on the beats and have strong eastern influences. However, Emmy’s effort is a bit less generic and has a slightly superior hook. It also appears to be a little stronger lyrically, large segments of Aurela’s song seem to be just a succession of “duas”. But that’s just my opinion. What do you guys think?
Before you decide why not take a look at the videos. With the amount of bare male flesh on show it doesn’t take Einstein to work out what demographic they’re targeting!
