Austria may have suffered the dreaded nil points back in Vienna, but the beautiful ZOË is ready to right that wrong with her song “Loin d’ici” – the first French-language song from Austria in the history of the Eurovision Song Contest. The video for the catchy tune dropped yesterday and colour us in love.
The video is as cute, feminine and dainty as ZOË herself. Wearing a beautiful gown and surrounded by animated landscapes, ZOË serves some Austrian Nicole Kidman/Julianne Moore realness. Her luscious red hair accompanied by powerful wind machines are reminiscent of Ariel submerging from the sea onto the rock in The Little Mermaid.
ZOË – “LOIN D’ICI” OFFICIAL VIDEO
It’s clear that the Austrian broadcaster, ORF, have spared no expense in making their entry a success. After an unfavourable finish on home turf last year, Austria is seeking redemption in their greatest form – a pretty lady with a pretty song.
In a current poll on wiwibloggs.com, we are asking you who your favourite is out of the 41 countries that have presented their entries. Right now Austria is ranked 23 out of 41. ZOË has the support behind her to carry her into the Grand Final in Stockholm this May. The video is expensive. ZOË is beautiful. We love!
