William: Portugal’s Leonor Adrade is a beautiful girl, and her styling was on point during her first rehearsal. She wore a black pleather body suit and black satin wings for good measure. She looks like a bat wearing a condom — but a very high fashion one. Her voice is lovely and she carries the tune brilliantly. Unfortunately she has to use that voice on this song. They could have given the stage performance more texture and dynamism with changing lighting and LED effects. But instead it’s just blue, blue, blue. This is bland and flat, kind of like a wet pancake.

Padraig: Portugal has everything except a good song. Leonor’s delivery was excellent, and I was actually really impressed by the stage show. But the song is simply too forgettable. It’s never had a hook, and one didn’t magically appear today. One of the other acts will have to completely crash and burn if this is to avoid last place.
