      He has a nice voice - and he can dance, but.... he should sing in Lithuanian. More people need to sing in their language. report to the moderator

      funny it seems loads of people are playing politics even on the comments. I remember reading somewhere that Lithuania can not afford to win the Eurovision contest for there is no money to arrnage next year ones. It is always difficult to predict how the votings will go, since it depends on the actual order of the songs, usually a ballad gets voted high if its among marching songs and the other way around too.

      I was a fan of beyssoul mself first, but this song, just as a guy takes time to grow on... the more you listen, the more you LOVE it. love is blind its true, but lets hope half Europe is not deaf.....
      i love particularly the idea that its one guy on a stage, dressed in black and he ALONE can pull out the show, reminds me of Robby Williams show at the Albert Hall....

      I will surely vote for him, from my both phones, Dutch one and Swedish one, for all 3 contries are in the semi semifinal! report to the moderator
