We reported that the Slovenian singer David Amaro, whom Slovenia met in our show Znan obraz ima svo glas, was ranked among the top 12 singers in the Croatian show Superstar. Unfortunately, he failed to make it to the next competition round in the first live show, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t impress with his performance.
David introduced himself with a song Half the sunduets Marija Šerifović and Matija Cveka. A jury consisting of a music star SeverinaCroatian producer Tonči Huljić, Nika Turkovićrepresentative of the new era of Croatian pop music, and Filip Miletića Serbian producer, were impressed. “After this performance, it seems to me that Marija Šerifović is calling you. Very nice! Open up a little more emotions, there is so much in you, you were great,” commented Filip, and Nika added that he performed the song as if it were his.
“In my opinion, this one is better than the original and more compact,” Severina added. “A great vocalist, you have a great command, I have nothing to say. I’m impressed.” Even Tonči did not hide his enthusiasm: “I have only one word – cannon! If there is God and justice, we will see each other in the final.” Despite the enthusiasm of the jurors, David did not succeed in breaking through, because this time the audience had the main say.
David Amaro among the top 12 in the Croatian Superstar show
Antonija Blaća, host of the Superstar show, eventually asked the eliminated candidates, which included David, how they were doing. David admitted that, of course, he is disappointed that he did not qualify for the next round, but that he is extremely happy that he was able to perform in RTL-this show and met people outside the borders of his native Slovenia.
The jurors could not praise him after his performance, but unfortunately David did not receive enough telephone votes to be ranked next, as only citizens of Croatia could vote for him. What the presenter also emphasized: “Maybe the deciding factor was that your friends and family couldn’t vote because they were from other countries.” The second candidate who dropped out is Luka Veljkovićwho comes from Switzerland.
