Tanja Mihhailova's blog: Exclusive Interview to Tanja (Estonia Eurovision 2014)

March 18, 2014: Tanja has been giving us this little interview for all your fans in an important moment for her career. The next 6 May she defend her song "Amazing" for Estonia in the first semifinal of Eurovision 2014 in Copenhagen. All the best to Tanja!.

Tanja what entirety you have demonstrated all these years up to managing to go to Eurovision... I know it was more work for you and you were not obsessed with going to the show... but finally you go!... you have a medal to the regularity!

TM: Thanks :) I am patient.
I remind myself of the unjust NOT classification of the hit "Falling Star" in 2011.... From "I can b the 1" How many times have you presented song to Eurolaul or Eesti laul without luck? Often we do not know if you had taken a song... only know the 20 finalists!.

Yes, we sent our songs 5 years in a row and only this year got to the semi-final :) But now i can understand why we didn't get in last times, i wasn't ready :) Now i am :)
The life can change very rapidly true? Will you have to adapt quite your activities to this show? surely Timo Vendt will be in the same situation... you can already congratulate from my part!.

TM: Thanks, i will. Yes, life is crazy at the moment … so many interviews, my first ever video is ready and out :) a lot of work has been done and there's a lot of work ahead. I love it :)

It seems as if already you had a futurist vision: Of your last album "Gemini" 11 songs already were in English... did you saw nearby your international career? ;)

TM: Well :) no … i hoped that some day somebody would buy my album from outside Estonia as well but … now it actually can happen and i'm very happy :)

I thought I understood (March 11) you're doing a video for the song "Amazing". I can not believe it... From the far "Vihmane päev”... You know the time I'm waiting for this moment? Force you Eurovision to do video for the song? or Are you preparing for a successful international marketing campaign?

TM: Yes, we decided to do a video for Amazing. It felt like the right moment to do it:)
An example of the power of Eurovision and your Eurofans: 2 days after gaining the national final, in a forum of opinion about Eurovision in Spain there were 17 pages of comments relating to your song “Amazing”... bads and goods, comments jokers of idiotic people and some comment also suitable and sincere. Are you prepared for this international critique of people who does not know anything about you? Or well you will not lose the time in reading anything of this...
TM: Well… it's a good thing that they're talking about me at all. As far as critisism goes… there will be people who like you and people who don't. It's easy… i'm doing my thing, i've been doing dance music for a looong time now, i've been dancing for a loooong time and i've had this hair cut for almost 10 years now :) I don't see why i should change myself or my music or my personality, so that people who don't like me now would change their minds. Well… no, i'm me and i'm gonna do my thing for people who want to listen to me or watch me perform.
Related to the previous question, you know that there are criticisms concerning the dance that accompanies the song. What do you think? Yes, it may be that we remember previous performances, but without doubt, was the best Estonian song and I would like to see people who can dance like you or Argo!. Only Sandra’song was good but Sandra has gone to Eurovision and Sven often...

TM: It's a good thing that artists start to use contemporary more and more. It's pretty rare at the moment, because people are used to seeing hip hop, show, brake dance but not contemporary. Nobody is screaming that Justing Timberlake and Chris Brown or Usher are copying each other… because it's the same dance style they're using, so lets give it some time for people to get used to "strange" dance style as well. And i can tell for sure that those lifts and balance stuff that we are doing never've been done by a singer on Eurovision stage before :)

I believe that now the most difficult thing already is made. Denmark is placed well between Baltic countries that often are voted between them.... I see a good classification ;) Do you imagine -for a moment, let’s dream!- that you win the show? I would have a friend of world famous!

TM: For me the ultimate thing is to do our absolute best… and to give everything we could give :) of course it would be absolutely AMAZING for us to win but i cannot predict the future so let's just see what future holds for us :)
Well, shortly they you will come an avalanche of interview, we already make you calm... and how always you have this simple blog for you, if you want any thing only you have to say it, if you want you can use this interview... all for you! If you lived closer to me I would give you a big hug... :P I will wish you good luck (and I wish you luck) but you no longer need it... you're on top of your career.
TM: Thank you for your kind words. Big hug to you as well.

Amazing song lyrics

For those who do not have English as their first language, is hard to understand many of the words of the song "Amazing". Tanja has a total control over everything she does, she sings in English very fluently and naturally... but sadly not everyone can do.

I put the lyrics below to see if we finally learn it... worth it!

Remember how we used to be
Floating the skies, it felt so heavenly
We were weightless
We froze to ice and melted down
We chased the stars and felt to the ground
Couldn't care less

This feeling inside
You're all that I have, I need you back
Do you hear me screaming?

2xStay amazing lie (Do you hear me screaming?)
I don't, don't want another to make me high
I want, want you to be amazing lie
Stay amazing lie

You know there's nothing I wouldn't do
I'd brake the curse of time to be with you
I'd be fearless
I'd jump as far as I can see
And beat the perfect storm in the endless sea

This feeling inside
You're all that I have, I need you back
Do you hear me screaming?


This feeling inside
You're all that I have, I need you back
We were weightless

Eesti laul 2014 - Chronicle of a just and meritorious victory

Saturday, on March 1, 2014, 21:35 h Estonian time. Placed to 3.000 km from Tallinn's distance, for the first time, we have connected a cable HDMI to the computer and we will be able to see the "Eesti laul" for the television thanks to the WIFI installed in the room.

Previous years we saw the show in the computer thanks to the emission on line that issues the ETV. But today the show was more interesting because our favorite artist was there. Everything had to be more spectacular and intense. We have called to a Chinese restaurant of my city and we have food prepared in the table.

It begins the show... and certainly that is slow and boring. The songs were very soft, slightly animated, very little adapted for a show as Eurovision. This year there was no "Freaky" but though the level was not so low as in the previous years, the show me was not reaching to my not special at all one. In fact, in the previous years (Eesti laul 2012) I had realized the chronicle for "Pep1000 channel" that was reporting in English the events of the Eesti laul. But the low level of last years and small hearing made me leave this task...

Up to the moment if I had to choose some song probably it had been Lenna's song but for choosing some song. The awaited moment comes: in the position 9 she acts.The rhythmic and intense song perfectly composed by Timo Vendt, Tanja's powerful voice and the supernatural dance together with Argo Liik, confirmed to us what we already knew: it was the best song with difference, without comparison with no other song. Up to the moment it was another show; now it was entering the real final for Eurovision. In addition a perfect putting in scene with very risky and difficult movements to do singing at the same time. This only it can do Tanja, the best song and action without doubting it!.

The last song was that of the master Sven Lõhmus. Again he trusts in Sandra Nurmsalu to gain the contest. The song is good, as always, with a nice melody, but Sandra already has gone to Eurovision and Sven often... probably now already it is not necessary.

We come to the surrealistic punctuation of the juror to which we already are accustomed of previous years (Thank you Rolf Junior for your punctuation!). Tanja stays in one fourth unjust position and remains classified directly Super Hot Cosmos Blues Band.

Later there comes the inventory of the voting of the public. Certainly I had my doubts relating to the song that the public would choose. I was thinking that the "amazing" performance of Tanja would be more valued by the juror how specialist in music, but it was not like that.

For problems in the Internet receipt in my house, I do not see the punctuation of the three last and best selected by the public... I am very angered for the present time but I know that, as minimum, she has stayed between the three first ones. The aim for my already was made!.

It turns the Internet image in the TV and I see that Tanja hold her friend Timo. We were thinking that she already was eliminated and was an embrace of good made work and we have stayed very well in the final punctuation. But it was not like that...

I return to lose the image for Internet in a few seconds... my heart already could not any more!... What bad luck! the whole contest well and now I am with problems in the receipt... When it turns the image, I see the final voting for both final songs (luck that I know the functioning of the contest of previous years!).

The telephone appears again to vote to the band Super Hot Cosmos Blues Band that is first classified and that I already had seen... and the second song appears the telephone to vote for... for TANJA !!!!!. We remain mute and without knowing that to say... there are no words...

We are petrified in our seats. Without still having breath, everything is very rapid in the final part of the contest Eesti laul... Tanja gains the show... and we still do not know that to say....

After a few tears and a few embraces, she already is lowering the stairs to return to sing ... I still am petrified and she already is prepared. Argo also demonstrates the same cold blood. Only the big artists can do this.

For what always we had waited year after year it had happened in front of our eyes. All very rapid and curious and overcoming surveys not favorable at all to her reason.

The public in the first round also voted as the first option to Super Hot Cosmos Blues Band. Tanja remained second and therefore they would be both finalists for the final voting. In this final round she received 53% of a 57.000-strong vote whereas Super Hot Cosmos Blues Band 47%. For an incredible combination, our artist was happening to be the winner of the contest. For more detail of the punctuations to see the following link.

Always we wonder because not she was not in the finalists' selection for the show in the previous years, when we knew that she had presented some song. Horrible songs were selected between 20 final candidates and always we were wondering... Why these songs?. We remember with bitterness when the mega hit song "Falling star" did not enter not the 20 candidatas "better" for the show of 2010...

And surely it had other years in which probably she presented some song and we do not know it. From the golden age of "Nightlight duo" in 2002-2003 Tanja has not been in the final of the Eesti laul. And this year, 11 years after of that one "I can b the 1" that stayed in fourth position, Tanja in addition gains the show. I cannot believe it!. The night of March 1 I could not sleep very much... A thing is evident: finally always there is a prize to the effort and witness.

It seems that the object of this blog already is coming to his end after almost 5 years (look links here)... We wanted to put Tanja in Internet and in English to spread your work internationally... and for a strange and intense event, the whole world will know Tanja in the Europe's best show: EurovisionI still remember when I was trying to spread the Estonian pop music.. and I was just with bureaucratic problems (look link in Ekspress or in this blog)

The numerous "Eurofans" surely want to know more thoroughly the one who is this extraordinary artist who sings and dances so well... they have this blog to make it already prepared. Surely it will increase the number of visits of very important and unexpected form... 
Some voices say that Tanja's dance in the song remember some previous performance in Eurovision. Probably it is true, but it was undoubtedly the best song and the one that was offering a major visual spectacle. Now in Eurovision everything can happen but... I only say that is in Denmark and Estonia is placed well between the votings of the different Baltic countries. I believe that the most difficult thing already is made!.

Tanja if you were living more nearby I would like to give you an affectionate embrace. I continue without words!...

Josep (Pep1000)
