Italy 2018 🇮🇹 second rehearsal: emphasis on the visual lyrics
ON THE SPOT: LIVE FROM LISBON
ITALY – Last country to rehearse (although next is Greece and Denmark with extra re-runs) is Italy. Ermal Meta and Fabrizio Moro are giving in their own Italian way a social / political message through their song which has visuals of the lyrics on screens and create a true sentimental performance with their message against terrorism. A great song that cannot have a success besides Italy where the song slays. It’s always good to have songs like this in Eurovision proving that the contest has space for everyone.

ITALY 🇮🇹 ON THE WEB
ESCKAZ.COM: Goosebumps all over here for me. Despite – or maybe thanks to – the projections of the lyrics not being visible in the hall except for the screens hanging everywhere, the performance comes across as very powerful. Vocally both are very good and the song stands out as well for me. Love this.
ESCXTRA.COM: Both Ermal and Fabrizio are fantastic live singers, adding extra emotion that even the studio version doesn’t have.
EUROVOIX.COM: This is the last rehearsal for the day, but it looks like Ermal’s mic feed didn’t come in on time. Otherwise, another solid rehearsal.
