Rule of thumb when you have a god-awful song to present? Get naked, apparently.
Kasia Moś can try all she wants to make us believe that the promo video for Flashlight is meant to be tastefully artsy. Does she actually think she will get away with it, using the oldest trick in the book to draw the attention away from the fact that the song itself is boring as f*ck, plagued with banal, ridiculous lyrics and at the end of the day just takes up space in the running order of the first semi-final? As if there’s nothing like the display of naked skin and half a boob here and there to take our minds off it.
We wonder if she will show up on stage in Kyiv without garment on her torso. Rumour has it that previous Eurovision winner Loreen already did something similar so perhaps it’s part of a new trend. Maybe even male artists will start performing without pants, like Donald Duck? Or here’s an idea, how about everyone keeping a certain amount of clothes on? We do not think the world is ready for the naked edition of Eurovision just yet
We can’t think of anyone who would actually become inclined to vote for this sad excuse of a ballad. It reminds us of Wild Soul, the Moldovan entry in Copenhagen, which ended dead last in the semi-finals that year. We predict a similar result for Poland in Kyiv and it will be well deserved, and suitable punishment for imposing lyrics like “fire, like a burning desire” on us. Shame on you, Poland!
