    Score: 3

3. San Marino – Michele Perniola & Anita Simoncini – “Chain of Light”

> Artist profile

    Odd song. I don’t know if its slow or uptempo. Corny in general.
    Score: 1
  • Kemal
    No comment.
    Score: 0
  • Erdi
    I guess this is the best San Marino can do.
    Score: 2

    The song is so old sounding. And the singers are only 16! What’s wrong with you San Marino?
    Score: 2
  • Maral
    I don’t like it…
    Score: 1
  • Emma
    It reminds me of a song that would be in a musical.
    Score: 3

    I’m really hesitant about this song. Not bad, but not that good either.
    Score: 2
  • Iain
    They’re no Valentina but an interestingly constructed song from San Marino this year!

= Total score: 16

 


 

 

4. Montenegro – Knez – Adio

> Artist profile

 

 

  • Eric
    I get the feeling that I have heard this song before. Really.
    Score: 1

    I prefer “Moj Svijet.” 
    Score: 2
  • Erdi
    Made by Zeljko, but I was expecting something bigger.
    Score: 2
  • Helin
    Its clearly a Zeljko Joksimovic song. Knez even sings like him.
    Score: 3
  • Maral
    This is pure poetry! I love the lyrics.
    Score: 3
  • Emma
    I didn’t expect anything less from Zeljko. Beautiful music, and Knez is perfect for the song.
    Score: 4
  • Tolgahan
    Great Balkan influences!
    Score: 3
  • Iain
    The introductory music is far too long, the song is alright but good for them singing in their own language.

= Total score: 21
