Patrick: What can I say…they deliver a funny, interesting performance and it’s good that we have Pollapönk: we need some fresh and funny songs after so many depressing ballads. To be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of the song. It’s colourful but it’s still crap. I really like the bright staging and background, because it totally fits their style. Vocally they are okay – not good but not bad. That’s not want you want to hear at Eurovision, where you need to be FAB. But thanks Iceland for an amusing show!
Wiwi: I know this goes against the message of their song “No Prejudice”, but I am totally biased—in the sense that I love this. I know it’s cheesy, and silly, and sounds like it belongs on a 1980s kids TV show. But it makes me smile and that’s worth a lot in a sea of ballads. Take me higher and make me smile, Iceland!
