A solid batch of songs here!

Hard to tell North Macedonia and Kosovo's apart. Macedonia has the "singing forests," but Kosovo is the "nest of love." Meh to both.

Kiribati's poppy arrangement was a bit odd, but the lyrics are so positive and hopeful.

Bahama's and Uganda are both good, and sound like they are sung by the same singer. Edge to Bahamas.

Fiji and Lesotho made little impression.

Mauritania's enemies "kept us young and bitter," but they will protect your fiancee. Something might be lost in translation.

Taiwan's is a winner. Simple lyrics, inspirational as hell.

Thumbs up to Kiribati, Bahamas, Uganda and Taiwan.
"beautiful, with an exotic-yet-familiar facial structure and an arresting gaze."
