  • the bookies are all betting on typical repetitive euro-pop songs and schlager music, yet Slovenia has won the audience's hearts and will qualify 100%

  • I close my eyes and hear her sing, I thought I was listening to a black woman. She's clearly inspired by soul and gospel.

  • I don’t get why some people get upset for the song being inspired by her religion. If we embrace and celebrate people of different skin color or sexuality, I expect everyone to do the same for people of different faiths

    • @Špela Žumer Why not? I have full right as Slovenian to share my thoughts. Do you reckon this song is the best Slovenia can produce? Do you think that the way this song was selected to represent Slovenia at the ESC was fair to the other applicants? I do not. I will do whatever I think is right and say whatever I want! Sorry.

    • @666 AMENS whaat? :D LMAO annoying part is interesting. One of the most peaceful song in contest. Every esc song is a bit repetitive. Is there any song original in 21st century? These are never ways to humiliate this song bye.

      Ron WeasleyRon Weasley6 napja
    • @Nina Stark Come on. The song is boring crap full of clichés. Old fashioned, annoying, preachy, repetitive, lacking any originality... etc etc...

      666 AMENS666 AMENS7 napja
    • Perhaps many people think that the song feels religious because she sings amen and hallelujah. Or that a large majority seem to choose singing depending on how much skin is shown, sexiness and what the artist looks like. That's sad. I'm not religious and think that Anas voice is amazing. The song is powerful and beautiful. Slovenia is my winner. Greetings from Sweden
