 Cuppa Doodle - Eurovision 2010

    Return to Doodle Notebook

Commentary:  Personally, this song is not my favorite.  Don't get me wrong, I don't have a particular musical genre snobbery. In fact, I count many pops among my top favorites. I'm always receptive for a catchy, crisp and cute easy song, so long as there are some melodic merits. This piece, however, is clearly entirely created for the typical club crowd. That style is invariably mindless, repetitive and unenchanting.  However, the singer is very charming and the performance was quite excellent for her age. Oh...  those Americans who criticized her English accent are real fine ones to talk!  Shame...
