Eurovision 2013: How high can Georgia’s ‘Waterfall’ go?

Just a few days after Russia revealed its part-Swedish written entry ‘What If’ which I thought was in the same cheesy power ballad vein as ‘Quedate Conmigo’, Georgia presented its song, ‘Waterfall’, sung by Nodi and Sopho.

Eurovision 2013: What are Russia’s chances with ‘What If’?
