2012 entry - LITHUANIA: Love is blind - Donny Montell

DRAW Semi 2 (18) 

Lithuania, much like most northern European countries in the Baltic/Scandinavian region, hold a multiple semi final selection process and then have a final of ten or so songs to select a winner. This year, Donny Montell prevailed with top marks from both the jury and the televoters.

Much like last year's song, there is a degree of stillness to this one; at least up to the point that the blind fold is removed. I like that even if you knew the title of this song and were just watching - you'd get that at the point of the blind fold being discarded you know that the the man's eyes are finally open. Donny is a charismatic gentleman who puts in a single handed cartwheel in his act and has the voice to hold the tune.

I am honestly concerned that this will not make the final, but I will be optimistic and say that it will. In the final, he will either sink like a stone or be incredibly popular.
