May 13 / First Rehearsal Czech Republic: welcome back guys!
Fotis Konstantopoulos (Greece)
Sexy black short dress for Marta and and stretched suit for Václav’s body and the first rehearsal for the Czech Repuvlic kicks off. Abstract blue and purple shapes in the LED graphics and the two singers make a good use of the stage moving here and there without loosing a note from their vocal performance. Technically they are perfect. In terms of tune and music taste, I’m not convinced.
Marta & Václav
“It can’t be true, because we are like brother and sister.” But it is really so, that the first person who saw Václav’s daughter after she came to world was Marta’s husband. “Because he is a doctor”, added Marta.
