CookyMonzta Posted May 14, 2022 Share Posted May 14, 2022 And here is how I saw the performances of the remaining 3 of the Big Five, as presented by Eurovision.tv: 9.59 United Kingdom Suffer no delusions; this is a potential winner for Sam Ryder (my #1 before the contest started); but I'm worried about 2 things: (1) That cage he is standing in, somehow, doesn't look right for a song like his; and (2) I'm really worried that his rearrangement of the end part with his guitar might cost him a few points here and there. I hope I'm wrong. 9.42 Germany If Malik Harris were singing this song alone on stage (no props), he'd be at an even bigger risk of coming away with a blank scorecard. What he has on stage is perfect for this song: Instruments around him, with the stage, lights and mist giving the appearance of a dusty studio after years of non-use by a band long disbanded; with him in regular clothes. He is giving us the appearance of how things are now, while describing the way things used to be. I hope it's enough for him to come away with some points, because he is singing in the middle (13th), at risk of being forgotten by those before him (Ukraine sings 12th) and after him. 9.48 Spain Is it just me, or is Chanel's performance top-heavy on dance and not enough on vocals? Though I (gravely) misread Eleni Foureira's 2018 performance, it had more of a balance between singing and dancing. Bookies have Chanel at #5 right now, and it remains to be seen if she gives Spain their first top-10 (and certainly top-20) finish since Ruth Lorenzo in 2014.
