A few weeks ago the Euroleague announced that Naturally 7 will be the performing live act at the Final Four. Never heard of them? Me neither, but I should since Euroleague.net tells us that they perform the #1 German hit “Music is the Key.” I was kind of shocked, me being German and all, that I didn’t know the German #1.
Thanks to YouTube, I was able to find the song in question. It’s more like Sarah Connor than Naturally 7. For those who don’t know Sarah Connor – she would be the Paris Hilton of Germany – in terms of singing and starring on TV shows.
During last year’s NBA Finals I saw people such as Justin Timberlake, David Beckham, Will Smith and Alicia Keys singing the national anthem – well, at least the Euroleague got Naturally 7, right?
Of course, the Euroleague is for Europe, and the NBA for the rest of the show world, but don’t you think that fans from Panthinaikos (here is their theme song), Olympiakos (this is what their fans listen to), and of course our techno Russians of CSKA might think Naturally 7 is kind of a joke?
I won’t judge a group or even a person before I haven’t seen them live — which will happen on May 1st — but don’t tell me I didn’t warn you!
