A few days ago Aram Mp3 treated us to a cover of Emmelie de Forest’s “Only Teardrops” and you guys were rul rul impressed. But judging from your comments you are less impressed with Daniel Testa’s inadvertant cover of the same song. In fact, some of y’all are shouting PLAGIARISM!
That’s a bit dramatic. It’s true that the opening bars sound like a re-mixed version of the winning Eurovision number, but the song goes in a totally different direction. Unlike Emmelie de Forest’s song, Daniel’s shifts at 1:06 to sound like the opening bars of Dima Bilan’s “Believe”.
Daniel Testa’s “One Last Ride”
Emmelie de Forest’s “Only Teardrops”
Dima Bilan’s “Believe”
In any case, Daniel is a major contender to win tonight’s final in Malta. Will you be supporting him? Or are you rooting for Jessika, Pamela or Davina instead?
