  1. Nothing special & an ordinary dull song…Definitely not NF winner material let along a winner material song in Eurovision..
    I do not see this song winning in Maltese NF in few days…Maybe it won’t even qualify from the SF..
    I do not even remember his song of last year’s NF..
    By the way,his facial expression in the cardpostal of his video looks hella annoying & definitely doesn’t represent the theme of his song that its about a love story!
    There is no fire at all in this bland weak song..
    So NEXT please..
