Georgia 2017 - Misho - Magic

There must have been something in the water in Tblisi last Friday - either that or the soundman had nodded off, because there were more than a few off point vocal performances throughout the contest. But Misho here had an answer to that, as he boldly worked his way through as many vocal styles as he could possibly squeeze into three minutes, hoping that one of them might stick.

The song itself is equally as schizophrenic. It begins as a bit of a glam rock stomp, with our lad's mangled English gnawing its way through the airwaves. Then all of a sudden he goes all castrato on us, and delivers a small passage off almost correct operatics to our ears, before he went full boglin and nasally growled his way through the next bit, sounding every bit like the sweary Linda Blair interludes from The Exorcist. Then it starts the whole cycle again, goes a bit disco for a couple of bars, before the lad himself starts stomping about like a demon possessed.

Really, this is already down on the list as the most singular vocal performance of the year. I wonder if he does parties…?

  1. My favourite song in Georgia. I love how he totally sells the lyrics about dragons!
