She may be coming in like a “LoveWave” but Iveta Mukuchyan from Armenia has completely blown her performance out of the water! Everything from the first rehearsal has been taken and multiplied by ten and Iveta is owning every inch of her being and every inch of the stage. She’s commanding this performance like an Armenian goddess and she looks fierce!

Every inch of the stage is being flooded with Iveta’s sass and grace. She is rocking a delicious body suit showing off her amazing legs and slaying in her loose curls, giving her an air of Beyoncé.

Her live vocal once again was flawless, and this performance was so polished and so clean that it’s absolutely ready to go! Iveta caught every camera angle, killed in front of the wind machine and as the pyrotechnics let loose on the final chorus, Iveta get’s her life and goes for blood in her vocal. This performance is insane!

I have to say that I really dislike this song, from the first time I heard it. I usually don`t mind about the staging but her “costume” looks really “cheap”, if you know what I mean 😉

she is not pretty at all, too plastic.. the women singers from :Malta, Bulgaria, Serbia much but much better in terms of song and look…

This is definitely a winner material. Original, creative, everything is just done right. And when I heard that Armenia turned a Thomas G:son song to compete with their own…RESPECT! This is total opposite of Azerbaijan.

Just a big mess, so awful.
So painful to listen, Iveta is just screaming with her annoying voice. Dramatic noise lacking of melody.
Eurovisions fans and wiwi just love her fake divas.

I so hope they will give out earplugs in the Globen.. I am sure I need one when I am forced to listen to this disaster.. the build up is just ear bleeding. Overrated junk, for sure.

I think this is too dramatic and the spoken word and the posing in the beginning is too much. It takes away from the song.

This is full package! Her voice, look, song, staging…. Everything is just GREAT! If juries won’t do that crap that they do against Armenia it will be in top 3! I’m sure it will be at least on 3rd position after televote. I noticed that juries underrate Armenia EVERY SINGLE YEAR. Especially in 2009, 2011 and 2014 when their votes kind of blown Armenia away from the top. Fingers crossed!

I’m really looking forward to seeing this on the TV screen.
The question is if the viewers will like it immediately. Many here (including me) needed some time to appreciate the song.

In comments there are azeris and turks who writing bad about Iveta, Armenia which i know that there are problem between that countries. Its a international music contest so go and solve your problem in your country or in your mind azeri and turks. What kind of <> you are. OMG. Go Iveta. We love you. A lot of loves and votes from Estonia.

LOL Alex…..

btw. I find it strange that in the German jury her former mentors from TVOG are in. So weird. In 2014 they put Sido in it, who was a publicly hating judge from a casting show on Conchita, and now the BossHoss.
And Madeline Juno (German jury 2014) told in the NDR preview show webcast that all jurors would talk to each other. That explains why their votes are so aligned and strange every year.

Score based on jury criteria 7/10

I’m not over keen on the song; especially the talking bit at the start but Iveta looks amazing and totally commands the stage. Now that is how to perform and it has impact. The siren bit at the start works really well on the stage, the juries are going to like this and it does justify a Top 10 place.

She is beautiful and sexy and the staging looks very nice but the song is so strange for me!
A qualification : no problem
Top 10: I don’t know , for the moment I don’t think so.

The song has some good elements I will admit of starting to appreciate just a tad more.
But overall It’s very unalienable, she is HOT the song is NOT.

If you put lipstick on a pig, it is still a pig. And this song is still painful and dull with an elaborate staging.

Don’t tell the Armenians that they are favourites, or they will vote outrageously unfair (like in 2014)

Earphone issues impacted her vocals immediately after she messed with it. But the beginning and end from the second verse were again flawless. Can’t wait to see her live – for now, she’s my winner.

This is what I’m talking about when I say I’m not all that sure many songs from the first half of this semi will qualify. Iveta and Sergy have performances that will wipe the others from memory. Hungary has the only performance that can stand with this and Russia. Armenia easily qualifies, with good shot at winning this semi.
