Webmaster rating

“A boring, uninspired pop song and the “transsexual” argument just isn’t enough anymore. Eurovision fans will hate me for this, bit I didn’t like Diva either, just a bit to shallow for me and “Ding Dong” is even shallower, plainer and more boring”

  1. Definitely does nothing for me – I think it might struggle to get out of its semi, let alone challenge for a Euro win…

    Far, far better entries out there – this would make a good album track but nothing more.
