Likely Televote Appeal
Likely Jury Appeal
The constant staccato pacing makes it sound rather disjointed and redundant after the first chorus.
Croatia’s Franka has finally published her Eurovision song, Crazy, which is has tinges of Alicia Keys’ Fallin‘ and Artsvik’s Fly With Me.
Franka will perform in the second half of semi-final 2.
The problem for Franka is that her song tries to be bold and classy while failing miserably at both. It’s a wallpaper song; the sort of entry Switzerland sends and then fails to qualify. I can sort of remember the ‘crazy’ refrain after one listen, but the constant staccato pacing makes it sound rather disjointed and redundant after the first chorus.
This type of song at least offers potential for dramatic staging, which something Croatia desperately needs if they are to qualify to the final. The juries should be onside – to a certain degree – but it’s the televote Croatia needs to work on. I’m not hopeful.
Will Croatia be Crazy if they don’t qualify this year?
