It’s time to move on to Latvia and now we judge Justs with „Heartbeat”. First of all, let me explain the scoring system: we give points from 1 to 12, without 9 and 11 and we add them until we get a certain number (for example 71/96). Why 96? Because we are eight people in the team (so 12 multiplied by 8 equals 96).
Alex Iovan: Great job, Latvia!! This song is simply perfect. I never get bored of it. And Justs’s live is so amazing. Latvia will be in top 5 because this song is so catchy, so good sung by a great singer! 12/12.
Călin Giurgiu: Amazing song, so 2016, so modern! For sure will be top 10. No more words! 12/12.
Muntean Marco: Love it! Hope he will end in top 10,the song is modern,great job Aminata and Justs has also a good voice,the only problem I think it’s the staging. 12/12.
Matei Pieca: Simply amazing. Heartbeat is a modern song sung by a good voice and a handsome guy (girls will go crazy, I tell you that). It is in my Top 3 and I wouldn’t mind if this song won, thought I can see it achieving a top 5 position. Latvia is one of my favourite countries this year. I don’t know what really happened that after so many years staying in the semi-finals they sent Aminata and now Justs. Latvia is doing great. 12/12.
Laur Mihai: It seems that Latvia slays for the second year in a row! Aminata comes back with a memorable composition, very modern, up-tempo. The beat is tremendous, for sure this is one of the most modern instrumental from the whole competition. Last yeat, Aminata brought some Burkina Faso realness, this year we have also this but Justs is bringing some Latvian realness. Justs has an awesome voice, but sometimes I feel that he is not reaching my soul as Aminata did last year. I think he is focusing 100% on singing and it will be a pitty to be a machine. If you look at his live performances, he is not even creating a conexion between audience and him. Nevertheless, „Heartbeat” is an up-tempo song, he must move on the stage…to make people inhale energy. I hope the staging would be breathless, not something sophisticated, but he needs breathtaking show. This could be without any doubts in top 10 and even higher, but I would say that everything depends on his attitude on the stage. 12/12.
Andrei Faur: Very modern song this year from Latvia. Justs is a charismatic guy and his voice sounds very good! You can feel Aminata`s touch all over the song! Good one, Latvia! 10/12 from me.
Ingrid Marc: 10/12
