As always, two semi finals are scheduled, each containing 18 performers who’ll be battling it out for a place in the 2012 Grand Final on Saturday May 26, where waiting for them will be the ‘big five’ of the UK, Germany, France, Spain and Italy, along with the host nation Azerbaijan. Here at auspOp, we’re continuing the Countdown To Eurovision will a daily look at one of the competitor’s songs.
EVA BOTO : Verjamem
She’s one of the youngest competitors to take the stage at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, but what 16 year old Eva Boto lacks in years, she more than makes up for in confidence and vocal potential as this live performance video shows. Eva will take to the stage for Slovenia in the second Eurovision semi final on May 24, performing a track called ‘Verjamem’, which translates to ‘I Believe’.
But whether the track is strong enough to take her through to the May 26 Grand Final remains to be seen.
