Eurovision 2020 It's Destiny For Malta! - X-FACTOR

The song: “All of My Love”


Selection process
: The selection process in Malta included two rounds. The first round aim was selecting an artist. The artist was selected as the winner of the second season of “X-Factor Malta”. The winner was Destiny. The second round was an internal selection of a song for Destiny.

Allocation In Semi-Final: Malta will perform in the second half on semi-final 1

Musical Review: It’s a mid-tempo gospel song. The first verse has a slow rate and it focuses on the emotions and the voice of the singer. The chorus is catchy, rhythmic and contemporary. In the bridge, we are gifted with a gospel vocal orchestra which elevates the song. As a gospel song, we can hear the influences of American church music.
Destiny has a warm and mature voice. She is connected to the lyrics and therefore her interpretation is conviving. The backing vocalists are professional and they complete the “brotherhood vibe” in the song.

 

The lyrics

Never had the heart to pray
I never thought I’d find the way
But now I do
Now I do
Always felt I was no good
Always felt misunderstood
But now I don’t
Now I don’t

‘Cause your great love is healing me
Renewing me through and through
I am free to live, so I give you

All of my love
Like a river runnin’ wild
Every brother, mother, child
Now we found each other don’t let me down
All my love
Like a river runnin’ wild
Every brother, mother, child
Now we found each other don’t let me down
All my love

All the love I feel for you
All of my love
All the love I feel for you, yeah
Now I know your words are true
My heart is filled with gratitude
It’s only you, I’m living for
Your amazing love, so sweet
Has raised me to my feet
I ain’t going back anymore

Now I sing about you, dream about you
All the time
Don’t wanna live without you, so I give you

All of my love
Like a river runnin’ wild
Every brother, mother, child
Now we found each other don’t let me down
All my love
Like a river runnin’ wild
Every brother, mother, child
Now we found each other don’t let me down
All my love

All the love I feel for you
All of my love
All the love I feel for you, yeah

Now I sing about you, dream about you
All the time (All of the time)
Don’t wanna live without you, oh, no
Don’t wanna live without you
Now I sing about you, dream about you
All the time
Don’t wanna live without you, yeah

All of my love
Like a river runnin’ wild
Every brother, mother, child
Now we found each other don’t let me down
All my love
Like a river runnin’ wild
Every brother, mother, child
Now we found each other don’t let me down
All my love

All the love I feel for you
All of my love
All the love I feel for you, yeah
All the love I feel for you
All of my love
All the love I feel for you, yeah

Poem AnalysisLike in any traditional gospel song, the song starts with a lost person who is asking for help and answers in life. After she found her way for praying, she feels safe and understood – “Never had the heart to pray/ I never thought I’d find the way/ But now I do/ Now I do/ Always felt I was no good/ Always felt misunderstood/ But now I don’t/ Now I don’t“.
The spokesperson feels bless. healthy and lucky. The love she receives is the origin of the power in her life. The love she mentions can be explained in two ways: religious love (the love of God) or romantic love –  “‘Cause your great love is healing me /Renewing me through and through /I am free to live, so I give you
She mentions the great river and it can be explained again in two different ways. The river is a symbol of nature which proves the great power of God. Another option is that the powerful river resembles the power of her love, as a metaphor. The song talks about brotherhood and therefore she talks about a brother, mother, child. Another option is that the spokesperson is in love and therefore sees the beauty in life and she is thankful for having all of her relatives –  “All of my love/ Like a river runnin’ wild/ Every brother, mother, child/ Now we found each other don’t let me down
The spokesperson has finally fount her truth. Great love is the main force of her life. She is convinced that the tough time in her life won’t come back any more –
Now I know your words are true/ My heart is filled with gratitude/ It’s only you, I’m living for/ Your amazing love, so sweet/ Has raised me to my feet/ I ain’t going back anymore

My Initial Ranking: 9th overall, 6th in the semi-final

My Initial Prediction: Malta will qualify for the final. Destiny is an excellent singer and the song in contemporary. The jury will vote for her and for a change, Malta will probably be one of the fans’ favorites. If Malta qualifies. I predict it will end in 4-10 places. I’m almost sure Malta will end in the top 5 of the jury voting.

The influence of the allocation in semi-final 1:   6 among 10 countries that tend to vote for Malta will vote in the first semi-final:  Azerbaijan, Italy, Croatia, North Macedonia, Ireland, Australia

 

Odds Table: The song was released on the 9th of March 2020. It is stable in 8th place.

 

 

BELGIUMB

The artist:  Hooverphonic

Hooverphonic

Hooverphonic is a Belgian band that formed in October 1995. Though originally categorized as a trip-hop group, they quickly expanded their genres to alternative, electronica, electropop, rock, and a mixture of others.
The lead singer if the band was replaced several times: Geike Arnaer ( 1995-2008), Noémie Wolfs (2010-2015). The current lead singer is Luka Cruysberghs, starting her membership since April 2018.
The current members are: Luka Cruysberghs, Alex Callier, and Raymond Geerts

The song:  “Release Me

Selection process: Belgium has internally selected Hooverphonic for representing the country at Eurovision 2020. The band has decided and created the song “Release Me” by itself. The song was released on the 17th of February 2020.
Belgium was the first country to reveal its representatives for Eurovision 2020.

 

Allocation In Semi-Final: Belgium will perform in the second half of semi-final 1.

 

Musical Review: It’s a beautiful classical ballad. The first verse has a slow rate and the main element in it is the pure singing of Luka. The melody in the first verse is based solely on piano playing. Afterward, drums and guitars are added to the melody.
The melody contains the use of strings musical instruments. The structure of the song breaks conventions and it puts the music and the emotions in the center.
Luka’s singing is emotional and simple in a good way. That’s the right way to create a decent love ballad.
Some claim that the song lacks peaks and modulation. However, I think that every verse and chorus conquers our hearts.
The traditional melancholic and mysterious vibe of Hooverphonic is one of the dominant components of the song.

The lyrics:


Release me
Don’t talk go away
Release me
It’s not right to make me stay
All the lies and all the pain
Only you can make them go away
Release me from this sad and losing game

Release me
Don’t say what I already know
Release me
only trouble steals the show
All those words won’t comfort me
It’s clear we’re not meant to be
Release me from this sad and losing game

You’re all I want
A dangerous need
it s wrong to keep you close to me
If you dare
If you care
Then cut the ropes and float away
Yes release me
If you love me, let me go

Release me
Don’t talk go away
Release me
It’s not right to make me stay
All the lies and all the pain
Only you can make them go away
Release me from this sad and losing game

You’re all I want
A dangerous need
it s wrong to keep you close to me
If you dare
If you care
Then cut the ropes and float away
Yes release me
If you love me, let me go

All the lies and all the pain
Only you can make them go away
All those words won’t comfort me
It’s clear we’re not meant to be
Release me from this sad and losing game

Poem AnalysisThe spokesperson is a woman that is in a bad relationship. The poem describes her willingness for ending the relationship and the reasons why she wants to end it. She draws herself as a prisoner who is waiting to be free. She doesn’t find any reason for continuing their relationship which is fraughting with lies and pain –
Release me/ Don’t talk go away/ Release me/ It’s not right to make me stay/
All the lies and all the pain/ Only you can make them go away/ Release me from this sad and losing game”.
She asks her lover to prevent from saying what’s obvious. She sees and recognizes only the bad aspects of their relationship. She doesn’t see a reason to continue their relationship and she even states they don’t mean to be  – “Release me/ Don’t say what I already know/ Release me / only trouble steals the show/ All those words won’t comfort me/ It’s clear we’re not meant to be/ Release me from this sad and losing game”
The spokesperson understands how important is her lover. The remoteness between them is getting worse. He is like a forbidden poison that she must prevent. She is asking him to let her go if he loves her -“You’re all I want/ A dangerous need/ It s wrong to keep you close to me/ If you dare/ If you care/ Then cut the ropes and float away/ Yes release me/ If you love me, let me go

My Initial Ranking: 5th overall, 2nd in the semi-final.

My Initial Prediction: Although Belgium sent one of my favorites songs in Eurovision 2020 and even though it’s artistic and high quality, I have difficulty seeing it qualifies.
I feel that the song intends to a specific group of voters. Jury members will probably appreciate it. However, if one of the other strong entries of semi-final 1 will fail to give a strong performance then Belgium will have chances to qualify.
If Belgium doesn’t qualify then it will end in 11-12 places in semi-final.
If Belgium qualifies, then it will end in 14-20 places in the final.

The influence of the allocation in semi-final 1:  3 among 10 countries that tend to vote for Belarus will vote in the first semi-final:  Australia, The Netherlands, Lithuania

Odds Table: The song was released on the 17th of February 2020.
On that night, Belgium was in 12th place. The country moves between 11-12 places until the 22nd of February 2020. On the 23rd of February 2020, Belgium decreased to 19th place. On the 26th of February, it decreased to 21st place. Afterward, it moves between 16-19 places. Since the 10th of March 2020, Belgium is in 17th place.

 

 

IRELAND

The song: “Story of My Life”

The official video clip:

Live performance from “The Late Late Show” in Ireland:

Selection process: Lesley Roy was internally selected to represent the country by the Irish broadcaster RTÉ. The song “Story of My Life” was released on the 5th of March 2020.

Allocation In Semi-Final: Ireland will perform in the first half of semi-final 1

Musical Review: It’s an uptempo dance-pop song. The song is actually an anthem empowerment song. The style of the song can be related to common music from the years 2006-2010, especially Katy Perry at her beginning. The song starts with electronic guitars playing. The chorus is catchy and immediate. The chorus puts the rhythm in the center. It includes stronger electronic sound alongside drums.
However, it seems like the song is dated and far from being contemporary. I’m a little bit disappointed with the lyrics in the chorus – “And now I sing, na-na-na-na-na-na, hey, hey, hey“. The last third of the song is actually a repeating of the chorus on and on. In each time, it becomes powerful.
Ireland could have brought us sophisticated lyrics as native English speakers.
The ending is more danceable and rhythmic. The song ends in the first line of the bridge.
Actually, I’m sad to confess that her live vocal performance wasn’t good enough.

 

The lyrics

Everybody told me that I’d never be someone
I’m not a puppet on a string, no, no I’m not
And everybody said that I was always breaking rules
Why would I ever wanna put myself inside a box?

I don’t care what they say
And who are they any-y-way?

The story of my life it’s mine
I made it on my own that’s right
And now I sing, na-na-na-na-na-na, hey, hey, hey
My life, it’s mine, my, my life, it’s mine

They said if I was blonde that I could make it, so I did it
Then they said, “You’re almost perfect, but you talk too much”, ha
Try and dumb it down a little, make sure that you’re in the middle
Rock it all you want, but make it pop enough

I don’t care what they say
And who are they any-y-way?

The story of my life it’s mine
I made it on my own that’s right
And now I sing, na-na-na-na-na-na, hey, hey, hey
My life, it’s mine, my, my life
It’s the story of my life, that’s right
There’s more to me than meets the eye
And now I sing, na-na-na-na-na-na, hey, hey, hey
My life, it’s mine, my, my life, it’s mine

My life, yeah, I’m gonna be me, yeah
I’m gonna believe it’s right
My life, yeah, I gotta be me
I gotta believe it’s right

The story of my life it’s mine
I made it on my own that’s right
And now I sing, na-na-na-na-na-na, hey, hey, hey
My life, it’s mine, my, my life
It’s the story of my life, that’s right
There’s more to me than meets the eye
And now I sing, na-na-na-na-na-na, hey, hey, hey
My life, it’s mine, my, my life, it’s mine

My life, yeah, I’m gonna be me, yeah
I’m gonna believe it’s right
My life, yeah, I gotta be me
I gotta believe it’s right

I don’t care what you say

 

Poem Analysis:  The song talks about personal life in a judgmental society.
In the beginning, the spokesperson mentions that others didn’t believe in her.
She won’t give up on social norms. Society asks her to obey the rules she doesn’t believe in – “Everybody told me that I’d never been someone/ I’m not a puppet on a string, no, no I’m not/ And everybody said that I was always breaking rules/ Why would I ever wanna put myself inside a box?”.
She is saying that she owns her life and therefore none will determine her future and present –  “The story of my life it’s mine/ I made it on my own that’s right/ And now I sing, na-na-na-na-na-na, hey, hey, hey/ My life, it’s mine, my, my life, it’s mine“.
In the second verse, she mentions that others expect her to change. For example, she dyed her hair in blonde to satisfy others. At that point, the strong character that was introduced in the beginning becomes weaker. Thereafter, she has got another criticism. The lesson we can learn is that criticism can be endless. Besides, she has got a criticism about her music style which is too “Rocky” and not “Pop” enough –
They said if I was blonde that I could make it, so I did it/ Then they said, “You’re almost perfect, but you talk too much”, ha/ Try and dumb it down a little, make sure that you’re in the middle/ Rock it all you want, but make it pop enough

My Initial Ranking: 31 overall, 14 in the semi-final.

My Initial Prediction: I predict Ireland will not qualify for the final. There is a crystal clear reason for my prediction: There are at least 11 other stronger songs in semi-final 1 that will receive a “priority” of qualifying.

The influence of the allocation in semi-final 1: 5 among 10 countries that tend to vote for Ireland will vote in the first semi-final:  Sweden, Belgium, Australia, Norway, Italy

Odds Table: On the 5th of March 2020, Ireland was in 14th place in the odds. On the days later, Ireland decreased in the odds. At the moment, Ireland is 24th in the odds.

 

 

CYPRUSB

The artistSandro Nicolas

Alessandro Rütten was on born the 2nd of August 1996 in Heinsberg, Germany. He is better known as Sandro Nicolas.
He was born to a Greek mother and an American father. He was raised in Germany, where he started his career in music.
In 2018, he participated in the 8th season of “The Voice of Germany“. He was eliminated in the “Sing-Off” round.
In 2019, Sandro represented the United States in the “New Wave” competition in Sochi, Russia and finished in 5th place.

Sandro Nicolas

The song:   “Running


Selection process
: The singer was internally selected by CyBC the Cyprian broadcaster. On the 6th of March 2020, the song “Running” was released.
Ever since that exciting moment, the broadcast has kept us continuously with news and updates from “behind the scenes” of making the Eurovision entry.  it has started with revealing the entry’s name “Running”. then to a serious of teasers revealing that behind “Running” stands the Australian singer-songwriter Alfie Arcuri and the Greek producer Teo Pouzbouris. the last announcement confirmed that the Austrian artistic director Marvin Dietmann will join the team to ensure an unforgettable live performance. in Dietmann’s resume, you can find his winning staging for Conchita Wurst’s “Rise Like a Phoenix” in 2014.

 

Allocation In Semi-Final:  Cyprus will perform in the second half of semi-final 1

Musical Review: The song is an uptempo electro dance-pop song. His singing is the first verse isn’t powerful, he is almost whispering. There is a beat that is built in the verses and it is getting powerful in the chorus. The production seems to be a little bit overloaded. The beat is too strong and it overcomes Sandro’s singing. I recognize the difficulty of the singer to combine his singing in the rhythm. Moreover, the melody is too blended while the arrangement is too messy. In my opinion, something should be re-considered in the arrangement.

The lyrics

I don’t feel like talking, let me sit here alone
The phone’s calling, I can’t pick it up

I’m tired of running from these demons (Demons)
I’m tired of running from these demons
I can’t see anymore
I can’t see anymore

But I keep on running, I keep on running
I keep on running away
Now I keep on running, I keep on running
I don’t wanna fall again

I keep on running
I keep on running

Drowning out my memories, from the night before
Door’s knocking, just leave me alone
I’m tired of running from these demons
Oh, I’m tired of running from these demons
I can’t see anymore
I can’t see anymore

But I keep on running, I keep on running
I keep on running away
Now I keep on running, I keep on running
I don’t wanna fall again

I keep on running

Looking, losing
My energy, tripping
Anybody tow me back home
Yeah, yeah
Standing naked
Putting on fake smiles
I don’t wanna be sad anymore
Anymore, anymore, anymore, anymore, yeah, yeah, yeah
I don’t wanna fall again

I keep on running
I don’t wanna fall, I don’t wanna fall
I don’t wanna fall again
I’m not gonna fall again

 

Poem AnalysisThe song describes running away from bad situations. In the beginning, the spokesperson is depressed and wants to be alone – “I don’t feel like talking, let me sit here alone/ The phone’s calling, I can’t pick it up
He is telling us that running away is a regular activity for him – “I’m tired of running from these demons/ I can’t see any more
He describes a situation where he isn’t wise (actually he may be drunk). He is finding himself at home without any clue how he was brought there. He describes his physical behavior as disconnected from his real feelings –
Looking, losing/ My energy, tripping/ Anybody tow me back home/ Yeah, yeah/
Standing naked/ Putting on fake smiles/ I don’t wanna be sad anymore

My Initial Ranking:  35th overall, 15th in the semi-final.

My Initial Prediction: After an impressive record of 5 qualifications in a row (2015-2019), I predict that Cyprus won’t qualify for the final. The main consideration is that I don’t believe the song will work on stage. The style and the arrangement of the song fit the studio, not the live performance.

The influence of the allocation in semi-final 1: 3 among 10 countries that tend to vote for Cyrpus will vote in the first semi-final: Malta, Russia, Croatia

Odds Table: The song was released on the 6th of Marck 2020. On that night, Cyprus was in 25th place. Two days later, it dropped directly to 33rd place. The country has moved in the range of 32-33 places. Since the 14th of March 2020, the country is stable in 35th place in the table.

 

 

 

ROMANIA

The artist: Roxen

Larisa Roxana Giurgiu was born on the 5th of January 2000. She is known professionally as Roxen. Roxen is a Romanian singer signed by Global Records. She rose to prominence upon being featured on Romanian producer Sickotoy’s “You Don’t Love Me” (2019), which reached number three in Romania and received radio airplay in several other countries, including France, United States, Russia, and Spain.
Her debut single “Ce-ți cântă Dragostea” was released in the November 2019 and peaked at number two in Romania

Roxen Romania

The song: “Alcohol You

The live version (from the selection show):


Selection process
: In early February 2020, it was reported that Roxen was one of three artists shortlisted to represent Romania at the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. TVR (the Romanian broadcaster) had collaborated with Global Records for the selection. On the 11th of February 2020, she was revealed as the Romanian representative.
On the 1st of March 2020, Romania held a selection show where the singer performed 5 songs. The results were determined by 50% jury voting and 50% public voting.
The song “Alcohol You” was first in jury voting and in public voting.

 

Allocation In Semi-Final: Romania will perform in the second half of semi-final 1.

 

Musical Review: It’s a dark Indie Pop song. The song starts with the classical sound of piano and violin. Her singing is effortless. It’s modern, interesting and sophisticated. The first verse is based on quite piano playing. There is a slow beat that builds the chorus. Roxen composes the chorus with her voice. The song describes a relationship that failed. She holds herself from talking to him. The alcohol is described here as a temporary solution for the problem. The phrase “I will alcohol you” can be heard as “I’ll ca (ho) ll you” which means she will call him. Another option is “I will “cohol” you”. In the end, there is a computerized processed voice that accompanies her singing. The song is modern, refreshing, emotional and has a beautiful message.
I’ll have to mention that the song was revamped. The main change can be heard in the power of her voice and the production of the last chorus. Instead of being softer, the last chorus is actually stronger and powerful. The change can be found at 2:16, regarding the video clip of the new version

 

The lyrics

The sun is rising ink
For me, it’s hard to blink
I’m falling
I wrote some stupid words
Before I lost my mind
And called you
A taste of bittersweet
To chase the memories
Blue heaven
I need you but it hurts
To feel like I deserve
Your weapons

Why do fairytales fail, baby?
Mumbling in the dark to save me
Love you from the bottom of my…

Alcohol you when I’m drunk
I do it ’cause you’re not around
This pain’s the only thing that I can’t refuse
They warned me but I think it’s only fake news
I will call you when I’m drunk

If you’re the enemy
Then maybe I’m too weak to see it
The fire’s in my chest
But I won’t let my head believe it
If this is just a dream
Don’t wake me in between
I mean it
You lied so many times
But right between the lines
I read it

Why do fairytales fail, baby?
Mumbling in the dark to save me
Love you from the bottom of my…

Alcohol you when I’m drunk
I do it ’cause you’re not around
This pain’s the only thing that I can’t refuse
They warned me but I think it’s only fake news
I will call you when I’m drunk
I’ll call you when I’m drunk
I will call you when I’m strong

Poem AnalysisThe song describes a struggle with a breakup.
In the first verse, she describes the awakening (which is a natural action) as a difficult mission. She describes calling to her former lover as forbidden and silly action. She hasn’t overcome the breakup and doesn’t see a reason for her blame in the situation –
The sun is rising ink/ For me, it’s hard to blink/ I’m falling/ I wrote some stupid words/
Before I lost my mind/ And called you/ A taste of bittersweet/ To chase the memories/
Blue heaven/ I need you but it hurts/ To feel like I deserve/Your weaponsIn the bridge, she imagines their relationship as a fairytale that failed to exist. She is still confused and still loves him –  “Why do fairytales fail, baby?/ Mumbling in the dark to save me/ Love you from the bottom of my ...”
In the chorus, she mentions that she is drunk whenever her lover isn’t around. That’s her way to forget about him and overcome the breakup. She can’t avoid the mental pain she suffers from. Her environment warned her of being drunk and calling him but she didn’t get their advice. She is even planning to alcohol her lover to treat him and getting his physical love  –  “Alcohol you when I’m drunk/ I do it ’cause you’re not around/ This pain’s the only thing that I can’t refuse/ They warned me but I think it’s only fake news/ I will call you when I’m drunk
Her confusion continues here. She doesn’t know what’s wrong and what’s right.
Her head (the mind and the logic) tells her to stay far away from him, while her heart (emotions) tells her to search for his love and closeness. She is aware of his lies through their relationship but it seems like she chose to ignore it in favor of her love –
“If you’re the enemy/ Then maybe I’m too weak to see it/ The fire’s in my chest/ But I won’t let my head believe it/ If this is just a dream/ Don’t wake me in between/ I mean it/ You lied so many times/ But right between the lines/I read it”
In the ending, she mentions that she is not weak anymore –  “I will call you when I’m drunk/ I’ll call you when I’m drunk /I will call you when I’m strong


My Initial Ranking
: 8th overall, 5th in the semi-final.

My Initial Prediction: I predict that Romania will qualify for the final. The song is contemporary and touching with good production.
If Romania qualifies, it will end in 5-12 places in the final.

The influence of the allocation in semi-final 1: 5 among 10 countries that tend to vote for Romania will vote in the first semi-final: Israel, Italy, Azerbaijan, Cyprus, Ireland
