What do we think of the winning song?
Jazzi – I like Fallen Angel more than most I think the song is gorgeous however I do feel the song had more impact in Norweigan so maybe change it back please? No? Okay I still love you
Rory – Tix’s vocal delivery is fantastic and you can understand why he’s so popular in Norway, but I will need time with the English version of Ut Av Morket. There’s potential but whether it’s executed properly, we’ll see!
Rosie – TIX gave a fantastic performance, with high-concept staging, but ultimately I find the song very average and it does not really stand out to me or excite me in any way. TIX is a charismatic performer with a good voice, but I’m not sure if that will be enough for him to succeed in Rotterdam. It’s a very radio-friendly and commercial track though, and perhaps its performance in the Norwegian charts is just a sign of things to come!
Tim – I will say that I prefer Ut av Morket. I mean TIX puts on a great memorable staging. So all I have to say, please TIX listen to the fans, and send the Norwegian version.
What do you think of Norway’s choice? How do you think X will fare in Rotterdam? Let us know!
