AUSTRALIA’S FAVOURITE PERFORMANCES: BELGIUM & GEORGIA
Belgium’s Loïc Nottet appears to have channelled Kiwi Lorde’s monster global smash 'Royals' for his stripped back clicky entry into the 2015 contest. Young Loïc cites South Australia’s Sia as one of his idols and his cover of her hit 'Chandelier' is pretty impressive and garnered praise from the performer herself. The Belgian will be taking “full creative control” of the staging of his entry and, if his preview clip is anything to go by, expect water and copious amounts of paint (that’d be a Eurovision first) to be flying around the stage. Loïc will easily snap his way into the finals.
Channelling The Hunger Games Katniss Everdeen, Georgia’s Nina Sublatti will finish the first semi in style with the powerful rocky 'Warrior'. Co-written by Thomas G:Son, the composer responsible for the 2012 winning entry for Sweden 'Euphoria', Nina belts out lyrics like “world’s gonna listen to me” and her strong message of empowerment will undoubtedly captivate the viewing audience. Will Nina have her arrow trained on Guy? Better watch you back Mr Sebastian.
