Olivier Rocher from France
Here is a modern pleasant song that could do very well in this semi-final. Samra has a powerful voice and eventually has the song she deserves. “Miracle” is a track that could be played on many radios nowadays. And, for once, it’s not one of those Azerbaijani songs with too much drama performed but an over acting singer. It’s catchy, up tempo, powerful. And just like Armenia, don’t forget that Azerbaijan is a “show maker” and that we can expect a great staging that will help “Miracle” stand out in the line-up. For me “Miracle” is a 100% sure qualifier.
Luka Popovic from Serbia
Another good entry from Azerbaijan. A modern western song, which seems to becoming the norm for most countries at Eurovision. Being Azerbaijan, we are sure to see a good stage performance as well. Very good vocals from the singer and this should sail into the finals.
Jaime Solloso from Spain
Is there a year when Azerbaijan haven’t impressed us with a tune full of meaning and rich voices? Samra is very much in keeping with the club lounge style and makes good use of rich sound to emphasise Miracle. As a song it’s easily up there with the best, it oozes style, sound, rhythm and tempo. The problem is that the lyrics are extremely repetitive. It is more a song that plays to the singers strengths than the singer pushing the song to its limits. A lot depends on the staging, which being Azerbaijan, I expect to be superb. With that in mind this can easily be a Top 5 contender.
