Padraig: And we’ve arrived in Barbie’s boudoir. The staging is any five year old girl’s dream. Pink cherry blossoms, pink curtains, pink lighting… pink, pink, PINK! Every so often the screen switches to clips from her music video which show Monika performing before her car accident. They help bring home the message, but sadly the song is just too monotonous for us to care. In fairness to Monika there’s little she can do. The song is a non-event, and I really struggle to see this getting out of the semi.

Chris: This starts off really well, but unfortunately doesn’t really go anywhere. There’s a lovely cherry blossom background with some flowing curtains and Monika looks absolutely stunning. Visually, this is very well done. After that it’s hard to find many positives: The piano player and backing singers don’t charm and the final chorus seems to fall flat, though they may be holding something back. This isn’t a song you’d expect to have any pyro or gimmicks in, so I wonder what else they could do to lift the final third.
