Maria Yaremchuck, the woman who wiggled her way to first place at Ukraine’s national selection, seems to have packed up her leather whips for good.
Last night, during the interval at the Malta Eurovision Song Contest, the “Tick Tock” singer performed a pared down version of her Eurovision 2014 song. The number is slightly less discotheque and her look is way more demure. This version definitely showcases her voice better than the original version, but the House of Wiwi remains divided over this nonetheless.
Some of our bloggers love the new version. But others have said it is merely a “slight improvement on a bad song”. Even worse is the sense that it has been “Zlata-fied into a load of meh”and that “there is no energy” at all. We universally agree that the fake tan needs to go.
You can watch both versions of the song below. Then let us know which you prefer in our poll.
