REACTIONS FO SAN MARINO 🇸🇲
It is clear, the song is catchy nd fun to have with, among the fans, also perfect for our schlager nights at the Euroclub. But Serhat is not singing. he is whispering, he is not performing, he just stand on stage. This cannot make it to the final.
SAN MARINO 🇸🇲
Serhat is dressed in white. It is framed by two men and three women. The vocals are somewhat unstable. The dancing does not seem too serious for those present. In the last bridge, the vocals pull out two loudspeakers. Also, two loudspeakers appear on stage.
REACTIONS FOR GREECE 🇬🇷
This is was truly unexpected. The perfect vocals, the Victorian style of Katerine and the unique / different presentation made everyone enthusiastic and excited. This is already a definite qualifier and can promise us a lot more for the grand Final. Well don Katerine! It is the first time we award 5 stars on a rehearsal.
Katerina Duska wears a white dress that looks a bit like a bridal gown. It starts singing on a rock-like platform along with the vocals. On the stage we will also see fencing, as the two dancers are on the side of the platform. The lighting is in purple and pink shades. The floor seems to open a flower. The vocals wear yellow see through dresses and they look the same as flowers. An excellent first rehearsal for Greece, Katerina impressed with the high note. In the end, Katherine goes back to the platform.
REACTIONS FOR PORTUGAL 🇵🇹
Everyone here is appreciating the artistic performance of Conan. Also everyone here estimate that it is possible for European audience not to understand or appreciate the sound and lyrics of the song. I would definitely support this entry not only because it is a different and unique presentation but because it’s also good and well structured.
The scene is red in color with a rose that opens and closes on the beat of the song. Conan wears a robe similar to the one he had in the national final in green. Behind him, raised on a pedestal is the half-naked dancer, dressed in a green long pants, while wearing green gloves that reach the elbow. The dance moves we had seen in the national final remain the same. At the end of the song the dancer falls to the floor, while the singer sits on the foot of the podium. Feeling is caused by the absence of the gold prostheses that we have seen from the face of both the singer and the dancer. Voice a very good effort.
REACTIONS FOR ESTONIA 🇪🇪
It simply an OK song but there is nothing special. There is a good vocal performance (not the best version of Crone) but still the song and the entire act has nothing appealing to the audience but let’s see how the second rehearsal will be.
The appearance is similar to the national final, without of course having a girl on the stage. There is more background detail than Eesti Laul. The shots fall pretty to the audience while the effect has been preserved and will probably be the same way that Lost and Found did last year. Voice has improved, but the reaction was lukewarm.
REACTIONS FOR ICELAND 🇮🇸
Wether you like the song or not, this act will be noticed. Now many here are sure hat like AWS last year, Hatari will proceed to the final. Personally I wouldn’t even think of voting for it.
The Hatari have brought on the stage a silver circular crate at the top of which is the drummer of the band, while in it a dancer. In the scene we see wheel shapes with the background being mainly in black and red, while a head with nails looks in the background. In front stands the singer dressed in black leather and two dancers dressed in white leather and vinyl boots respectively. Flames escalate from the scene and the other singer of the band, also dressed in leather, makes his appearance in the chorus, and at the same time a dancer sneaks off revealing the black leather garment he wore under the white clothes. The cage opens and the third of the band along with the dancer in the cage come in front of the stage. Voices are impeccable, but on stage the things that are going on are too many, making it difficult for the director to watch them all. The whole console is extremely challenging and it is definitely a look that can not go unnoticed.
REACTIONS FOR AUSTRALIA 🇦🇺
If you like the song you will like the performance. But if you think that the messages about the depression and you see the earth on the LEDs you will be confused. You will also be confused with the outfit of Kate which cannot be easily understood by an audience like the European one. It would be fair to say that Kate does her best and what we currently see in the monitors makes you feel your re watching a video clip. Not sure if the public will vote for it but somehow this one will qualify (probably by the juries)
In the background of the scene there is a hologram of space, with pink and purple illumination and blue stars. To the right and left of the stage are two dancers, wearing dark blue dresses with rhinestones. The singer wears a white dress with rhinestones and the crown she wore in Australia’s national final and is at the center of the stage, raised on a pole like the dancers. In front of them there is a globe in a globe that alternates in day and night. The dancers and the singer swing over the poles during the song and as long as the song ends, their movements become more and more intense. Voices were good but there were sound problems. In the press, Australia’s participation left a good impression.
REACTIONS FOR GEORGIA 🇬🇪
The problem with this entry is that no one likes the song, but everyone adores the performer’s skills and vocals. The performance, for what it deserves, is excellent. But it’s the nature of the song that doesn’t appeal to the press members. Summing the reactions at press area, we doubt it will qualify but Oto is excellent in delivering the song
Oto is dressed in black. Backing singers accompany him on the stage, who are five. In the background, we see silhouettes up to snowy mountains. The lights dominate the blue. Then the lights turn red. The whole set-up is quite dark as it fits into the style of the song. From the second reflection, fog appears on the scene, while here there are many shots in the vocals. Fire is added later. At this point it seems quite loaded with fire, fog and background. Vocals are powerful.
REACTIONS FOR BELGIUM 🇧🇪
Simple instead of minimalistic, not good vocals, and in general no enthusiasm or expectations from this entry. Definitely nothing worth to see although Eliot could be improved and somehow better in the live performance.
Eliot appears on the stage wearing a black coat with red details. Three big drums are placed on the stage. The drums are a woman and a man holding drum sticks. Their blouses have the mark of peace. The lights are dominated by dark blue and purple color, and there are red lights in the end of the song. Eliot’s vocals could be better, as it sounds static.
