In another year Moldova's lovely Lidia Isac may have stood a chance of qualifying with “Falling Stars” but there are better pseudo-dance songs in this year's contest.
“Falling Stars” is a peppy, yet ultimately forgettable, number which will need to deliver some memorable stage moments that translates well on television to ensure it’s noticed.
Isac, a veteran of multiple singing competitions across Eastern Europe, will need to pull out every Eurovision trope to gain what would be a surprise Grand Final berth.
She’ll need to “hand grasp” for her life! Nothing to worry about here Dami.
