She’s “Crazy” for your love — and during Franka’s first rehearsal at Eurovision 2018 the press room was generally crazy for her. The Croatian beauty turned up and turned out in a form-fitting, structured black dress with plenty of lace detailing. She cut an impressive and confident form, reminding us that she’s a woman in control and ready to slay.
The Croatian delegation enhanced the jazzy feel of the song with sultry strobes and dark lighting. The camera pans around Franka, who stares into that camera and really grabs you. The love, love, love line — which comes with a boom, boom, boom — is accompanied by some assertive shoulder bobs, helping enhance the rhythm and feel. As ever, Franka proved she is much more than a fashion queen and stunning beauty. She has one of the best voices of the entire competition and did not falter.
One drawback? When the camera pans out to show off the stage Franka disappears. The lights, while fantastic as a backdrop for Franka, are not strong enough on their own. Say close to your girl and you’ll be good.
All in all this is a real grower — and it now seems like a potential qualifier.
