Feel comfortable, we will bring you to the world of cabaret. You will discover a place that has been attracting bright aesthetics of all stripes for many years! Are you ready to share joy and emotions of sweet and sexual performance created specially for Natalia Gordienko by the creative team and artists of the Crave Theater?

Not for me. I find it annoying, tacky and pretentious, as everything Kirkorov and the Dream Team do. It is better than “Prison” though.
Anyway, expect it to reach the top 10 cause somehow they’ll find a way.

I hope that next year, Kirkorov won’t be involved with Moldova’s national selection at all. I like Natalia and her song, but I think it’s sad that what should have been a show about Moldova presenting its Eurovision entry, instead became a night for Kirkorov to show himself and his ego.

haha what a huge letdown! I can easily compare the quality of their whole night show to the mediocrity of the song. Natalia’s vocal is so limited and so much worse than how I remember it, song is a complate waste of time and money and there’s no way that entry will reach top10, they should scream of joy if they find themselves in the final! Dream team? Maybe in the head of that narcissist

I mean, it definitely feels empty at moments but I don’t think that it’s bad. If Natalia can pull this live including all the dancing I am sure that it can go to the final. All in all, the whole show for this song was definitely not necessary. Especially since it lasted for almost three hours.

Is this the premiere of Natalia’s song or a show abaout Kirkorov? Being really politically incorrect i don’t understand how Russia has a law of gay ban in tv, but they honour Kirkorov, who obviously is the gayest star of all

Yeah, just when I thought that Spain’s show was boring… At least that one actually felt uplifting and Blas-centric. This one is just going nowhere.
Also, as I really liked Jeangu’s, Roxen’s and Hooverphonic’s songs today, Sugar will have a *really hard task* to match them. I hope that all this waiting is worth it.

I argue with you and say that she will have easy task to match them. Jeangu wants his broccoli and Roxen’s song is going nowhere. Hooverphonic’s song is… actually not that bad, you win there. But if it is really sweet and sugary then maybe it is going to be the best of today or if it is tastless and sour then maybe yeah, she may fail badly.

I suppose Kirkorov doesn’t have respect for other contestants – he mentioned that 7th place for Tolmachevy sisters was good ”considering that a bearded lady won. or a guy. only devil knows what’.” Something like that.

Yep. He praised Conchita’s song, and then he was about to say “she sang really well” and intentionally corrected himself saying “it [ono] sang really well”. That sounded nasty even for those unlucky ones who are no strangers to Russian homophobia and transphobia.

What surprises me is that there’s already so many dislikes and bad comments and she didn’t even get to perform yet. Are Kirokov / Gordienko *that much* disliked per se?
A ”sexy sugary song”, as announced, can be done right if they don’t take it too seriously and if song has a good hook.

Disappointed. I loved “Grow” but this is kind of annoying. The only positive I can think of is the inclusion of Sranang. But I am pretty sure this will go nowhere. At least I don’t have to worry about qualification.
