One minute nobody knows your name and then you sing for 3 minutes on a Eurovision stage, and your life is changed forever. We were scrolling through the billions of Eurovision videos on YouTube and look who we came across.
Yes – our favorite Romanian Eurovision singer, Cezar! Look at him back in 2009. All fresh-faced and floppy haired. We love the caption on the tv report “Contratenorul Sexy” – and for all the English speakers that is simply “Sexy Tenor”.
Where do you interview a “Sexy Tenor” – well of course in the gym! Not just sitting on a bench, but you get Cezar to run on a treadmill and sing opera at the same time. That is exactly how I like my opera sung to me!
Not content with that, they make Cezar sing for his supper – and he loves his Italian food. However we love the live interview in the studio after the report. We all know that Cezar likes to make a statement with his fashion! Back in 2009 he coined a pretty unique phrase for his style – “Rock Baroque” – Could we love this man even more!
Now we await Cezar’s new album and work with Loreen. Until that arrives you can still download his Eurovision follow-up single – the stunning “Painful Love” here
As a little treat we found this video of Cezar performing live on Romanian Radio with the classic Nat King Cole song “When I Fall In Love”, which he says is a taste of his music to come.
Cezar you are still our Eurovision Legend!
