Review: Germany- Levina ‘Perfect Life’

I find it really difficult to say something constructive about Germany’s entry for 2017. Levina, who judging by her performances at Unser Song has a quality voice, but she has limited star quality, artistic vision or appeal for a wider audience.

The opening thirty seconds of ‘Perfect Life’ are so similar to Sia’s ‘Bulletproof’, that I can’t fathom why it has been allowed to progress in the Contest, having not been challenged by someone for plagiarism. The music is generic, bland and dated like a bad song from 2012, the lyrics are one dimensional, fail to light a spark, the video drab with blurry reflections and lights in the shape of triangles.

I imagine the staging will be as inspiring as the video and you can bet your bottom dollar that Germany will finish towards the bottom of the table in the final. In fact it really annoys me in instances like these that the Big 5 automatically take up a slot in the final, when there are clearly better songs that will miss out on a place because they didn’t finish in top ten in their semi final.

My Ranking: 34th

My Prediction: 25th in the Final
