Today’s second round of rehearsals came from Latvia, Sweden and Montenegro. If #YOU haven’t been able to tune in our live stream, you will find here everything you need to know about these countries and their performances!
LATVIA – Laura Rizzotto – Funny Girl
Much the same as Supernova’s winning performance, Laura Rizzotto wears a much shorter and lacier red dress which adds to sultry, sexy feel of the entry. Her vocals in the final run seem a little off compared to her previous performances but we know she is an assured performer so we have no issues with this one. The backdrop is red with a few white highlights to break up the LED wall and she flips her hair around a lot as previously.
SWEDEN – Benjamin Ingrosso – Dance You Off
The staging is almost completely the same as it was in Melodifestivalen, so you can guess that he has the light tube settings. Same goes for the outfit, only his jacket is now made of muchshiner material. Of course, his vocals were flawless so don’t worry about that. At one point, there is a wide shot of the stage, showing his prop. Some camera angles need to be perfected, but generally it was a very good rehearsal for Sweden and you can expect another top 10 finish!
MONTENEGRO – Vanja Radovanović – Inje
Vanja is in a blue suit with four backing vocalists and a piano player on stage. The backing vocalists are in white dresses and they look like snow fairies. There were several angles shifting from the piano player to Vanja. The backing vocalists are walking around and back and forward from Vanja. The lighting at the beginning of the performance is blue and then it’s shifted to gold as the song goes to the second chords. Vocally it was perfect. Their only problem is that they are performing after Sweden.
