May 15 / Second Rehearsal Greece: the Greek Sanna Nielsen?
Olivier Rocher (France)
VIENNA, AUSTRIA – Because of the running order, the Greek act can be called a relief after the Finnish “noise machine”. Nice dress (if you don’t fear angina pectoris) and simple staging for this beautiful though unoriginal ballad (with the exception of Maria Elena’s hairstyle… but these are just rehearsals). The voice is as flawless as powerful. The piano and the blue spotlights both give a very classy touch to the act. I just love the enlightening of the stage with the high notes even though that is clearly inspired by Sanna Nielsen’s staging last year.
