Azerbaijan 2018 🇦🇿 second rehearsal: powerful minimalistic opening
Fotis Konstantopoulos (Greece)
AZERBAIJAN – Although the organisers could have done a better camera work (because the way they show it now the dance act seems a bit incoherent), the Azeri rehearsal is flawless at all aspects. Aisel is delivering the song perfectly and the lights, the dry ice, the lighting of the props work perfect for the song that actually will open the first semi final. A lot of choreography is happening on stage and special effects will appear on screen with glitter, and stars surrounding Aisel and the dancers. The white outfits are working great for this minimalistic performance. Now in terms of the betting odds Azerbaijan is considered on-the-edge qualifier for the Grand Final but I hardly doubt there will be a problem for this one to qualify. Don’t forget Europe has a lot of Turkish Diaspora who would love to support Azerbaijan sine their country is not participating.

ESCBUBBLE.COM: Aisel looking bored, not really looking at the camera. Solid vocals but not a success in my eyes. I do love the star animation during the middle eight, subtle, effective and not as cheesy as it could have been.
ESCXTRA.COM: We have taken a flash poll from around the ESCXTRA table here in the press centre and 5 out of 8 of us say: YES!
EUROVOIX.COM: Starts off on the concrete blocks, wearing a white dress and rises to her feet just before the first chorus. Runs across the blocks during the build in to the chorus, this section needs some improved angles.
