I quite like this song. I rarely discover new bands, but it seems that the songs of new bands are not as meaningful as old bands' songs. Anyway, Westlife, Michael Learn to Rock are perpetual. Their songs are simple but sweet and warm, easy to touch our hearts. ( Sometimes it is very difficult for me to " digest" new and modern songs.)

Well do you now about 9 control? It's a bend which is in the x factor. 21 June is the final and James Arthur is going to be there to. And 9 control is in the final also and I hope they will win. The x factor is in Serbia. And I always wanted to have a friend from Georgia :):):):):)

Honestly I don't now about 9 control,but few minutes ago I googled it.And saw 4 boys,that together called 9 control.I'd like to know more about them and I think you know them really good.Good luck them in final. ❤ ❤ Is in Montenegro X Factor? In Georgia we have reality show called X Factor and mentors discovered new talented people.Last year win Tornike Kipiani.(You can watch his videos from X Factor).He's really amazing.
And like you I always want to have a friend from abroad.
Did you know about Georgia before I told you about my country?? And one more question: how old are you??

No the x factor isn't in Montenegro it's in Serbia but I still watch it. Well everyone of them wanted to be a solo singer but they combined them in a group. Their names are Dusan, Lazar, Haris and Branislav. Yes I did know about Georgia before you told me and my birthday is on 6 august and then I will be 13:);-)

I love to listen pop music. My favorite singer is James Arthur and Beyonce. I asked if you now about one republic and their song counting stars because that song I singd with the choir on our concert in our school. Also I'm a huge fan of 9 control. And I have just one more question for you. Where are you from?

How do you know that I'm from Montenegro? Well I live in the main city which is Podgorica. Life here is good but sometimes it's a bit boring. We have many parks and here where I live there is a beautiful wiev. I usually go for a walk or I go out with my friends. I hope I will visit Georgia too ;-)

I just saw your profile.And there was your main personal information including country where you are from.
In my opinion live in Podgorica isn't boring,It's like life in Georgia's capital--Tbilisi.On 13th june there was natural disaster,but Tbilisi is still beautiful and amazing.We(Georgians) hope that everything will be better. :)
