APRIL 29: PHOTO IMPRESSIONS
COPENHAGEN, DENMARK – One more day kicks off in Denmark. In this post the oikotimes team will have a very short review of what we see on the monitors plus photos from the backstage, press meet and greet and rehearsals. So stay tuned and remember to watch us live on www.oikotimes.com/webtv
Moldova’s rehearsal was very interesting but I think the order of appearance makes it not memorable enought to qualify. The stage presentation is interesting as it had some good choreography and acrobatics. Then San Marino took the stage and brought Aphrodite’s shell on stage (another Eleftheria Eleftheriou and another 17th position – in the semifinal again) for Valentina! Portugal’s Suzy gave a really dreadful vocal performance although at least we got original Portuguese samba tune this year.
Boring but very artistic the Dutch presentation on stage seems quite interesting in terms of aesthetics. When it comes the song we all love to sleep. Montenegro’s song has already great camera work and Segej gives a tyical Balkan performance of an already amazing song. A girl in roller scaters dance alongisde with him. Hungarian rehearsal seems very impressive although Andras uses the stage idea of the national final. Still I could see him winning somehow.
And we move to the second semifinal. Malta is first and they sing their song that might grow up later but so far seems very static and uninteresting unfortunately. I guess we will not go again to Malta for senior Eurovision (Junior though is enough for now). Israeli singer obviously saving voice she is performing in a very artistic background (behind and on the floor). Two female dancers accompany her, powerful enough though something’s missing.
Simple and effective, Norwegian rehearsal and performance is definitely the best today. Georgian performance is what we expected: the most uninteresting one. The use of a parachutte on stage is amazingly irrelevant! Well someone has to stay out of the semifinal and we found out who. Last but definitely not least the amazing performance of Poland. The girl is sexy and the female dancers are also sexier than you can imagine! Boobies all over the stage!
