It sounds like Rhapsody In Black from the Symfonia album.
Does anyone else get the impression that they were filmed separately to prevent them from pushing each other out of the shot?

Boring song but Elize is stunning as always

That's Finland's Eurovision entry sorted then.

I like this song, it's poppy but it works. It's almost surprisingly "naked" (considering Tolkki's words about the album being very symphonic/orchestrated). But then again, these kind of tunes are often picked for a single/video. As a sidenote, is it just me or does Elize sound quite "off" during the chorus?
