Olivier Rocher from France
It’s always difficult to guess the type of song Finland will send to the contest. In recent years they’ve tried everything, from pop rock (2014), to hard rock (2015), from dance music (2013) to very simplistic ballad (2012). For the first time in years, Finnish are trying their luck with an up tempo pop song. And, that’s a good one. “Sing It Away” is a cheerful song full of good vibes that could easily stand out in the line-up. Sandhja is full of energy and could deliver a very good performance on the big night. This is a very decent track that could make the audience dance on the big night. In my opinion, it clearly deserves a qualification.
Andreas Athanasiou from Greece
Fun, uptempo and catchy. I don’t need anything else to love something. But this entry of Finland is an “almost-there” entry for me. It’s fun to watch and hear but It doesn’t hit the nail in the head with this one. I kinda like Sandhja’s voice in her live performance but it hasn’t convinced me yet. I am sure that most of the viewers will feel the same way that I do unless she does something genuine on the stage in Stockholm and blows us away or sings us away.
Victor Cruz Lafuente from Spain
Comparisons are obvious, but … Finland after 14 years tries again with a disco song. Back then it was with Laura with her wonderful “Addicted to you” and now come with Sandhja and “Sing it away”. If I have to choose one I prefer Laura (although didn’t do well). “Sing it away” is a cheerful song that let us dance in the Stockholm’s nights, but Sandhja must ensure the high notes of the song, because it is a difficult song to sing and may lead to off key performance. Backing vocals will be an important part of the song, but during their national final they were not successful. Finland had better options in their national final, but I wish them good luck! Viva la musica disco!
