Wiwi: If you bumped into Cleo in an alley late at night, she might cut you. You do not mess with this woman and that aggression comes through in this performance. She is empowered, she is strong, and she is my dark horse of this semi-final. The song is unique and original, and the spilling cleavage makes me laugh, laugh, laugh. I need this to advance.
Patrick: Freakin’ hell…. This is…. a Polish dream! I can’t believe I’m saying this but this is a fantastic performance. The song may be crap, but with this staging they should squeak through to the Final. The colours, the Polish tradition and the sexiness of Cleo – just amazing! I can’t wait to see the how the floor lights up during bridge. Cleo should really work on her vocals because she still sounds awful but I really like their rehearsal. Thank you Poland!
Judit: Cleo’s vocals are perfect, it sounds like it does in the official video. Poland uses traditional patterns on the LED wall, and the background singer/dancers also wear traditional dresses. This rehearsal wasn’t bad but there isn’t anything special in it. This is more than a comeback for Poland—it’s a triumph! Good job Slavic Girls!
Bogdan: In the press centre, Poland’s show is known as “the one with the tits”. It’s so shamelessly, blatantly erotic, that it looks like you need a Spice Platinum subscription to watch it. There’s this lady who goes to get water and then she starts doing laundry at the tip of the stage and it’s fabulous and hilarious (for the gays) and – I would a assume – titillating (for the three straights). Too bad they couldn’t find a sexy Polish hunk (not Donatan, haha) to help her hang the laundry afterwards. Anyway, vocally Cleo is on point and the show is very memorable. This is Grand Final material without a doubt.
