    I don't know which logic they use but it's clearly not what an expert should do.This year's juries were a disgrace.

    They are ranking songs based on 3 categories: song (composition and lyrics), vocals and staging. Jacques was excellent in two categories: vocals and staging and we could discuss about quality of composition.

    The juries killed it because it was tasteless, there was too much of everything. It's clear that he can do lots of thing with his voice, but sometimes less is more. During the jury show he changed the ending to show off his vocals Mariah Carey style, it was just obnoxious.

    Gonna comment on the others more tomorrow, but I have to say I am so glad he managed to score so well As I was one of the few who believed in him from the very start it makes me really happy to see that the song got such a nice reception. At the same time, I feel he could've got a top 10 result as well and it is sad that juries were exactly the ones who screwed him over.

    When an "expert" gives someone who performs like this 0........he should really question his own expertise.




    Also ex-yu juries............these guys are 100% idiots and retards. It was proven last year as well and now it just continued. It was just disgusting to watch how everyone gave 0 to Jacques. Even worse is that I am pretty certain it was something like "Now we will f**k them over, let's give them a 0. May the neighbor loses his cow".


    I think that even if we would send "Molitva" we would also get all 0s from ex-yu juries now juries also ignored both and in the semi, probably thinking they will increase their chances that way.



    That is why our "block" doesn't exist at all. Not with the juries. And that is why we generally have such crappy results as well. We don't need to give 12s to each others if the song is bad......but in this case it is just obvious that jury is voting as if those political imbecils are voting instead of the "experts".

    .
    I think the ones who should question their expertise are the ones who can give a high score to such a song, especialloy in such a strong final. And I'm a musician myself.

    I am ok with them disliking the song. They have a right on that. But we see examples of people who perform their songs marvelously each and every year and then they get ignored completely. Happens every year.


    Now yeah, one could say they don't like their songs thus it doesn't matter. But personally, I would certainly award someone who delivers a great performance even if I dislike the song with something. This song doesn't work for everyone but Jacques deserved a better reception from the jury because he is an awesome performer.

    I expected this to bomb with the juries and do well on televoting. The end result is decent and I think much better than anybody thought a month ago so congrats to him. The main lesson for HRT here is that you have to make a good show; I don't like the song, but the performance was entertaining (possibly our only enjoyable performance this century, not that there is much to choose from). They sent a good song last year, did a good performance this year and maybe they'll finally get it right next year.

    I wouldn't. This is not a talent show. A good live performance is a plus and it's necessary, but goes nowhere alone. Just like I wouldn't rank high entries like Georgia or Slovenia despite both artists nailed it live as well.
    It's not as if Jacques had the only good live performance in the final anyway.
