May 15 / Second Rehearsal Estonia: classy, the Estonian way
Olivier Rocher (France)
VIENNA, AUSTRIA – Let’s try to be objective here, even though this is one of my favourites. The song is classy with a 60’s touch, and so is the staging. Elina looks gorgeous, but Stig obviously had a fight with his Austrian hairdresser. Estonia has understood that the strengths of the act are the melody and the perfectly matching voices, so the staging is kept to a minimum (a bit like the Netherlands last year): a few skyscrapers and a spotlight. No need for more! If the Common Linnets came 2nd last year, the Estonian duo could win the whole thing this year.
