                Dear honest vocal coach, i really like your posts. funny and in fact they seem honest!
                Would it be possible to examine the best-placed contribution (after the jury voting - both in the semi-finals and in the final) of this year's ESC?
                That would be wonderful and I'm sure there might be something interesting about it. After all, before I forget it: it's the title "Proud" of Tamara Todevska.
                Thank you very much and best regards from Germany.

                    I'd love you to do a critique of all the recent Eurovision acts, but specifically Eugent Bushpepa from Albania in 2018, and Dami Im from Australia in 2016.

                        STORY BEHIND ARCADE
                        What’s the song ARCADE about, Duncan?" - asked by the host of the Dutch TV show DWDD - Duncan answered: ”... I wrote this song during my study at the Rock Academy in Tilburg. It’s a story about a dear person who I lost at a young age. I've always had a hard time dealing with this lost. She had the love of her life but suddenly wasn’t there anymore. And until the end she had the hope that her loved one would come back before she died. But he didn't. And that HOPE I put in this song and video. I shot the naked under water scenes with director/photographer Paul Bellaart. What we mainly wanted to represent in the video is HOPE. The water suface is, as it were, the HOPE of: the light, the dream or the love that’s up there to reach for. The nude reflects the vulnerability and perhaps the rebirth from HOPE ….”

                        Quote: "Arcade is a story about the search for the LOVE of your life. It is the hope for the - sometimes - unattainable" - Duncan Laurence, singer-songwriter [Born: 11 April 1994 in Spijkenisse, Netherlands]

                                                    The coach Georgina is awsome but bit too nice i think. This song is just another silly Eurovision song that rips off other songs mostly One Republic,, All the right moves,. Awful over dramatic singing with no emotional impact. Georgina should make a video about the best Eurovision song of all time which was Aminata's,, Love Injected,,

                                                                  Let’s forget for a second the emotional impact this song has brought to a lot of people, shall we, and focus on the technical aspect of the song instead. First, the melody of Arcade is everything but ordinary. It plays in different octave (low and high) which makes it pretty difficult to sing, unless the singer owns a wide range in his/her vocal register.

                                                                  The time signatures/time base and the beats are pretty unusual too, since the song starts in 6/8 and change afterwards pretty quickly in 4/4 as soon as the verse begins, and then changes again in 6/8, which is indeed quiet unusual for popular music and ‘easy listening’ balad we are usually listening on the radio. This change of pattern in the rhythm proves that the time base/signature (metrum in Latin) of this song is everything but ordinary.

                                                                  Second, the octave change within the low and high range happens all at sudden without giving the singer enough time to adjust. Therefore, the use of head voice and/or falsetto is technically crucial, not just to enhance the emotional aspect of the song alone. At this point, Duncan is able to do the transition between the chest voice and head voice beautifully, flawlessly and effortlessly.

                                                                  Furthermore, the haunting female choir sound in the background of the song (it turned out it was Duncan’s own voice!) fits perfectly to the melody in the verses and the chorus. The song is everything but monotone. It has structure, it builds up from the start to finish, even none of the choruses sound the same. It works effectively in keeping our attention throughout the song.

                                                                  The lyrics are beautifully written, meaningful and methaphorical enganging.

                                                                  Have you ever noticed that the song ends where it started? The haunting chorus in the beginning is the chorus you hear in the end. It symbolises the circle, infinity and eternity. In the video we see Duncan came in and left in the same fetus position. However, the last chorus (with the claps) we are hearing, besides the female voices, male voices as well that symbolize a victory, redemption and strength (out of the water).

                                                                  I have been through a difficult time dealing with depression in my life, and this song has been my way of expressing the feelings of anger, sadness, hopelessness, loneliness and despair but also hope, strength and spirit to move on. Thanks Duncan, thanks The Netherlands!
