LOL! It's kinda cute but way too dated and no melody. The main singer looks like she's escaped from an asylum. :lol: You just gotta love the dress, though. Looks like a lollipop. :mrgreen:

Imo, this performance wouldn't even suit JESC, she would scared poor kids. The outfit:
did she fly on it to that magic forest or something? Positive memorable thing - the title is almost exact Ukrainian meaning "in the forest".
I remember it was a big fan fave ... but after their performance I was like "what the heck. From Urban Trad to this :? "

Yeah ...

too many people compared it to Urban Trad...
but ok it was certainly not the best entry
In the national finals it was way better

^ totally agree.

I have a soft spot for this song. It was really cute but I guess didn't really leave enough of an impact. But I like it better than Urban Trad.

I think this was one of the biggest sh*ts ever in ESC...

I sort of like the song,and I sort of like Urbdan Trad - but I feel like I shouldn't like them,as singing in a made up language is nuts.

Ohh pity... I remember french speaking (walloon) medias made a lot of jokes about this. RTBF commentators also said we wouldn't go anywhere with that and they didn't believe in it, I remember.

But anyway, I quite like this.

just nice,nothing extraordinary,maybe too plain...anyway,a decent entry from Belgium

I think it's notable for one reason, and not for the language, but for being one of the few recent ESC entries not to feature any drums, at least for a non-ballad..... 8-)
