“People say “doesn’t have the winner potential” isn’t it exactly what y’all wanted make up your minds already.”
“I`m from , but I`m in shock too. So terrible choice I didn’t expect. This song got 2nd best from jury and 1st from the audience, hard to explain how this happened honestly. There were much better songs like Krutь or Jerry. It will be good if they get at least top-20 in final✌️.”
