This is part 20 of our 39 part run up to the Eurovision Song Contest. Today’s edition is brought to us from sunny Tblisi, courtesy of Mariko & The Shin. Let’s find out if they will make the cut this year!
Artist: Mariko & The Shin
Song: “Three Minutes to Earth”
Analysis: Now, while there is a link to a live performance, I’m using the sponsored link because you can barely hear the song…which is a blessing and a curse, because even the shiny version is bad enough. Mariko tries too hard and hits all the big notes rather off key. The Shin doesn’t really sing so much as they chant, and they can’t even really do that harmoniously. Their only good skill: playing guitar. Their arpeggios are kind of complicated
Verdict: Nope, not going to happen. They should not even get out of the semis. If, somehow, by some fluke they do, they will be at the bottom.
