  1. Well, it had to happen at some point, I guess. Cyprus sends the first song I do not like since 2003. Because I was very disappointed indeed, I sent Ivi and her song straight to the bin after the Cypriot national final but I have upgraded ‘La La Love’ a bit since and it has finally made it out of the hateful monstrosities section on my list. It is still a generic shake it! song with weak lyrics but I can at least listen to it until the end without it getting terribly on my nerves like f. e. Greece 2012 does. Finally, the video is a total disaster in my opinion, the failing counterpart to Iceland. All that dark imagery doesn’t reflect the song’s mood at all and where exactly does Snow White come in? For now and without any live material to judge … 4/12 and 31st place on my pre-rehearsals list.

  2. Pretty awful entry from Cyprus this year, very much the trashy type of Eurovision songs that I don’t like. Big disappointment from a country whose entries that I often like so much.

  3. This is a pointless contraption if I may say so. The melody is unappealing, the orchestration is disagreeable and Ivi’s stage presence is nonexistent. How will she fare live? My expectations are very low. Oh, there will be half naked dancers and backing singers to help her along, I’m sure. Good luck.

  4. bir gidinlan ibne kız ne iyi şarkı söyledi kızı desteklewyin yoksa sizi döverim bundan daha iyi simi var ibneler sizi şimdi neyse siz kaşlındınız …………..
