REHEARSAL REVIEW
If someone forgets the failed high note in the end of the song which can cost her big time, Lerika is proudly representing Russia. Already from the first rehearsal she seems ready to win the entire thing. After all she has many eastern countries on her side to support a victory. The stage is looking modern in black, blue lights and silver speakers. Well done!
