Likely Televote Appeal
Likely Jury Appeal
The music video is far too dark and gloomy, and Pænda isn't great at selling the song.
Austria’s song, Limits, by Pænda has finally reached YouTube after being premiered on radio.
This is quite an unconventional song for Eurovision and I can understand the reported reluctance of the selection panel put their faith in it. It is so delicate and dainty that it could easily fall between the cracks in semi-final 2. It’s a wonderful background Spotify track, though I’m not sure it makes a great Contest song. That will essentially depend on how the broadcaster, ORF, stages Pænda’s song.
I do think they need to present this to be light and airy with pastel hues and an almost dreamy soft-focus brightness. The music video is far too dark and gloomy, and Pænda isn’t great at selling the song.
The juries will certainly like this more than the televote; however, Limits is very borderline when assessing the field in semi-final 2.
