01. BELARUS – EGOR ZHESHKO – A MORE MORE
Egor Zheshko (12) was born in Minsk on Christmas Eve 1999. He became a talented musician at a very young age. Following his mom, he gladly sang lullabies and folk songs, but when he was asked to perform a children’s song in public, he refused: “singing is not a man’s job”. His interests at the time were building combat units of soldiers, collect toy guns and sail pirate ships.
Maybe too oldfashioned for my taste but the song is not working for my ears. The vocals inside the arena sound more as struggling than high noted voice. The tune turns out to be monotonous and I truly don’t see any hope this year for this one!
