Chameleons change their colour and Ira Losco is poised to change her Eurovision 2016 song. TVM dropped the news this evening, writing that “Ira Losco, her manager and PBS are in intense activity to find the right song for the Eurovision Song Contest, which needs to be presented within three weeks.”
The response to “Chameleon” was decidedly mixed. When we asked our readers whether she should replace the song, they got very emotional, with many complaining that the song lacks a strong hook — or even an identifiable one. Many fans commented that Ira should sing the runner-up song “Golden” from Brooke instead (nothing is official, but one rumour suggests that Brooke’s team said no to an alleged request). In recent weeks, as new songs have been introduced, “Chameleon” has also slipped down the wiwibloggs Eurovision 2016 Tops videos.
In any event, TVM’s report makes it seem that Ira and her team are listening. They have reportedly prepared a new version of “Chameleon” and are considering nine other songs. From tomorrow an international panel of music professionals, along with local experts, will help Team Losco figure out the best way foward.
