Dennis Reviews Anita’s 21st Century Favourite
Naviband – Story of My Life | 17th Place, 83 points (Final)
I remember the love the Ukrainian people had for this song by their neighbour, when it was performed during the contest in Kiev. And there is a lot of love. The genuine fun that the duo is having whilst performing their song was infectious. I can understand that this could make this entry Anita’s favourite for Belarus, also because this country struggles to have the same top results as they do in Junior Eurovision. For me however, after having heard the song so often, the repetitive nature of the song also gives it something annoying after a while. Maybe I will grow back in it again.
Brandon Reviews Joshua’s 21st Century Favourite
Teo – Cheesecake | 16th place, 43 points (Final)
Oh goodness, I have a love-hate relationship with this song, unfortunately unlike my waistline with the dessert itself. 2014 had some really weird songs and this takes the cake (alongside Latvia that year, of course). Hated at first, grew to like it, don’t think I’ll ever love it but it’s a wonderful reminder and how you can sing anything and it can at least bring a smile to you.
