Countdown to Vienna - MOLDOVA!

Next  up we look at a country that is pretty much guaranteed to qualify for the final if past results are anything to go by - Moldova.  Moldova may be small in area, but had a bountiful National Final to choose their ESC entry, that featured British X-Factor reject Kitty Brucknell, who sadly garnered approx 88 televotes for her effort...

Gaining considerably more than that is Eduard Romanyuta, a Ukrainian, who delivers a slice of pop that takes us back 15 years or so to NSYNC or the Backstreet Boys.  It's catchy, and certainly grabs the attention, so could do quite well!  Have a listen and look, and see what you think:

Let's see what the Euro Bureau Panel has to say:

Asta Bjornsdottir:  "Achhhh..... I´ve heard this a couple of times now and am kinda bored of it. It‘s modern and (I guess) hip but it‘s soooooo monotonous!!!! And the video.... overkill !!!"

Hasse Skoldebjer: "HORRIBLE!! 1/10"

Annemieke Kelleter: "I love love love this song. It's my second up-tempo favorite after Australia. Okay we might have heard this before, he probably isn't the best live performer out there, but still I'm always turning the sound up the moment this song comes along. Also like the fluty sounds in the chorus. Hope this will qualify and if it doesn't, well it's a great show-opener."

Adam and Charlotte Lane: "Nice piece of Euro / Justin Timberlake. Well produced and performed. Elements of Moldovan cultural music add to the groove. This could do very well. Eduard is trying to bring SexyBack, and almost manages it. Bye Bye Bye. 4.5/10".

Ooh, a mixed bag o'reviews from the panel there, let us know what you think in the comments below! :D
