Ireland 2018 🇮🇪 second rehearsal: tribute to the gay true love
Fotis Konstantopoulos (Greece)
IRELAND – Ryan and his dancers are bringing a sweet re-creation of the video clip on stage. It is not a bad song but I am afraid it will not be appealing enough the audience and I will agree with thee betting odds which at this moment predict Ireland out of the Grand Final. But I have to admit that the performance and the vocals are not bad at all.
IRELAND 🇮🇪 ON THE WEB
ESCKAZ.COM: Improved lighting. As much as I’m not a fan of the dancing at least it looks professional.
ESCBUBBLE.COM: I think the mix of shots between Ryan and the dancers is also not optimised. Ryan doesn’t sell the song particularly well, as Melissa rightly points out, but in all honesty he doesn’t have much opportunity. It feels like he’s only actually on screen for about 45secs of the entire piece.
ESCXTRA.COM: Ryan actually sounded slightly out of tune for his first run through…he soon picked it back up slightly, but it wasn’t great. For his second run through, he sounds a lot better!
EUROVOIX.COM: Vocally he performed much better, and didn’t struggle with the chorus as much. This will struggle with both the televote and the jury and I can’t see it qualifying in this state, while being in between two much stronger songs.
