William: Face, face, baby! During Austria’s second rehearsal the camera panned in on lead singer Dodo’s face quite a bit. He stared straight into the camera, adding intimacy to an intimate performance. The closely cropped shots make this feel like The Makemakes are singing in a small lounge or at a private party and all y’all are guests. Dodo’s reflective jacket works well with the orange lighting and the three minutes speed by surprisingly quickly. Vocally it’s smooth, rich and sexy and just oozes cool.

I don’t hate it as much as I used to, but it’s still just average at best for me.

I hope they’ve dropped the BBQ piano. That got the biggest cheer at the Austrian national final – it’s not a good sign when fire gets a bigger applause than the band.

Did they drop the burning piano? It was too cheesy anyway

I love it. The intimacy of the close-ups and the for sure great audience reactions can make this a stand out performance. Top 10!
