Romania

Romania definitely wins the outfit change award! The number of outfits that Mandinga has are just amazing. I counted at least 8 outfits in her song! I love that Mandinga has all the time in the world to change outfits left and right.

This song is so upbeat and happy you can’t help but smile and want to get up and dance. Mandinga’s voice is exquisite and has a nice range to it. Her good looks and the upbeatness of this song will probably cause it to get very far. I definitely think it will get into the finals, but once there she will find heavy competitition. With Turkey’s upbeat number and the dancing Babushka’s from Russia I think Mandina might get lost in the crowd. At least that might give her time to plan more outfit changes! I wonder if she’ll have changes during the competition.

Mandinga, everyday
Mandinga, zaleilah lei

I feel the rhythm of your body touching me
The wind’s perfume kissing me
Feels so good when I’m with you
You touching me and kissing me makes me want to dance
I’m so happy, I can shout out loud

Let me love you, let me love you forever
Never doubt that I’m here just for you
Come here, my sweet chocolate boy
Only you can make me feel the real love
