Historical Support Strength
If France meets expectations, Moustache could be on course for a similar finish to Jessy Matadore.
France’s Les Chansons D’Abord show delivered the results of the French public tonight and they voted to send Twin Twin to Denmark with song Moustache!
I may go against the grain in this review as I quite like the cut of France’s Moustache.
There have been one or two people suggesting France are nailed on for last place, which is the same mistake I made in 2010 when Jessy Matadore finished 12th rather than 25th!
Moustache is a fun, bouncy song delivered with the same gusto as Jedward’s Lipstick. I can already picture the same vibrant stage presentation with Moustache motifs if the Copenhagen stage has a similarly large expanse of LCD screens. Furthermore, the French publicity campaign will likely flood Copenhagen with novelty moustaches.
Unlike Iceland’s Pollapönk, Twin Twin are not irritating, and they’re not ageing men trying to appear relevant while exploiting the contest for own marketing side-line.
Vocally I’m unconcerned, though in this new jury ranking regime, I wouldn’t want the vocals to be as loose as Jesse Matadore’s. That said, if France meets expectations, Moustache could be on course for a similar finish to Jessy Matadore.
Will Twin Twin deliver a surprisingly high finish for France?
