Padraig: In order to succeed this would have need staging akin to the Common Linnets. Instead we have the same as the Cypriot national selection with some added sparkles and stars. “One Thing I Should Have Done” works best in an intimate setting, the Stadhalle stage is anything but. John does his best, but given the high standard we’ve already witnessed I can’t see this going anywhere bar straight back home.

Chris: Obviously, “One Thing I Should Have Done” doesn’t exactly open itself up to hugely exciting staging, but even so, surely Cyprus could have done something rather than a black and white opening? Throw a guitar player on stage or do anything, really, because right now this isn’t exciting me and serves as a downer after powerful performances before John gets on stage. He also wasn’t particularly engaging and I’m just left wondering what all the fuss about this song is – ByeAlex, this is not.
