Eurovision 2012: Eight Days to Go
Well, at least she's turning up, bless her. And that can only be a good thing as a trip to Baku would save Maya Sar from the smelting she appears to be in for at the beginning of this video. In an unusual turn of events for Bosnia & Herzegovina, they are putting a song in for Eurovision which hasn't got people rubbing their hands at the prospect of the Contest going to Sarajevo. Putting it simply, Korake ti Znam is so anonymous, even the Andorran entrants of 2007 wouldn't be able to notice and name themselves after it. It is only fair to consider the positives since Maya is putting in the effort so we shall say that she is no stranger to putting her all into a song when she has to. She must be gutted than that she hasn't got something more decent to welly with. This would make a perfectly pleasant album track but it just does not stand out in a competition like Eurovision where being the guest in the most striking outfit is the one that gets the most attention. Even after two listens before sitting down to write this it remains a struggle to recall this song. One good thing will come out of this, however. Next year's entry from Bosnia & Herzegovina will surely be a stonker in order to erase all memories of this.
Bosnia & Herzegovina has never failed to move from the qualifying round to the final. There is no guarantee that this won't happen this year but I really cannot see anything about this song which would encourage somebody to vote for it. Mind you, I said that about Ukraine last year.
