Rating: 8 stunning harmonies (out of 10).

YES!  This is fantastic!  I am so in love with this song.  See, I can enjoy positive, uplifting songs too!

What do I like about this song?  It’s probably better to start with what I dislike – the name of the group.  I know it’s supposed to be some reference to the girls being sisters, but how you you pronounce a 3?  However, that is the only negative thing I can say about this song.  The girls stand out as singers, their harmonies are just fabulous.  Their message is positive but avoids being heavy-handed.  I am just in love!  It stands out for all the right reasons!

The lights and shadows motif is also perfect for the Eurovision stage.  There is so much potential, and the Dutch have become experts at subtlety in recent years.  They can really work this one and it will be a stunning addition to the show.

It would be a crime if this doesn’t qualify.  I predict it will also do well in the final, standing out from some of the more electronic sounds that seem to be popular this year.  I don’t think this has the legs to win, as it is not as much of a spectacle as some of the other numbers, but if done right, this could be a top 10 finisher!
