The Xtra Files: We Review Croatia’s ‘My Friend’ by Jacques Houdek!
Welcome to The Xtra Files, our new series which will give you an insight into what the team at escXtra.com think of your favourite entries into this year’s contest! Today, we review Croatia.

Now that all the songs have been released, we are able to review each and every one of them. Our honest and brutal reviews will keep you entertained until the rehearsals start in May! We will also each give a score out of 10 for every entry, and create an escXtra.com leaderboard of the entries! You can see our preview reviews here.


Today, it is the turn of the Croatian entry, ‘My Friend’ by Jacques Houdek, to be reviewed by Dimitris, Matteo, Nathan, Nick, Rodrigo, and Sophie. Let’s get started!


The Reviews
Dimitris

I like the idea of the “two voices” in the song but well it doesn’t appear to be a good result on the song. I can only say, good luck Croatia. You will need it.


Matteo

No. And I’m saying this as an Italian who goes to the Opera every month. Shut it down.


Nathan

No comment.


Nick

Croatia brings us the most schizophrenic attempt of the year. Good Lord, Jacques really wants to show off way too much. When listening to this, I pretend it’s a duet (a duet with two people, not with one big headed Croatian), as I don’t even hate it. Some say the lyrics are a plus, but those lyrics are just too sugary sweet. After three minutes, I need a dentist. My teeth hurt.


Rodrigo

Who was on what illegal substances when this was conceived? Just no.


Sophie

It’s pretty incredible how different one guy’s voice can sound. Incredible and a bit scary. The cheesily cheesy lyrics are not helping. I would love for him to perform in a reversible boom-boom-boomerang-like outfit, turning around everytime he changes his voice.
