jESC 2015: Russia – Mikhail Smirnov – Mechta

Hi,

jesc2015logo

It’s the continuation of my opinion regarding the 17 competing entries from the 17 participating countries of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2015, which will be held in Sofia, Bulgaria (officially, though, the host will be Bulgaria as a whole. Sofia is only the location of the venue)

With only 5 entries left to be reviewed (or given an opinion for, as I’d say), let’s move on with the next country which is Russia. Once again, the country has chosen a ballad, although this one is more on the mid-tempo side than the previous one – and it will be sung in russian and english. Reaching out for a dream is the main theme of the entry titled “Mechta” (translation: “Dream”) and Mikhail Smirnov, who co-wrote the entry, will the song’s performer. A more extensive biography of the participant can be seen on this link: http://www.junioreurovision.tv/page/participant-profile?song=33363

Now to the opinion of the song: Nicely produced entry with a good amount of russian soul on both music and lyrics – however, there are much better songs than this one (and, honestly, those pop beats in the song don’t really help me to like this one more). I have to admit, though, that this one has all the ingridients to do well – it could even win this year’s edition. Let’s see if this entry can give Russia the second victory in the contest or not…

San Marino is coming up next – don’t miss my opinion regarding the entry…

Thank you,
