Fotis Konstantopoulos (Greece)
Skellefteå is the next stop for SVT’s Melodifestivalen and the rehearsals began since yesterday. The secret rehearsals took place before the official ones today and SVT’s official website has a report about them. Amanda Fondell gathered the best reviews.
Eddie Razaz – “Alibi”
Eddie Razaz is joined by six female dancers on stage. His “Alibi” is a fast-paced dance tune, written by “Euphorias” authors Peter Boström and Thomas G: son. Eddie has rehearsed and working out intensely and had the detailed movements of the body before Wednesday. Dancers move intensively number while Eddie follow in many of the movements and otherwise focus on the song. With koreogerafen Sacha Jean-Baptiste, he discussed how the interaction with the dancers can be perfected. Sacha gave a high rating one bet. It’s so good, you are in a sense, she says.
Amanda Fondell – “Dumb”
Idol winner Amanda Fondells numbers based on mirrors. Internally, the SVT has been described as challenging because of all the angles that must match in the interaction between the cameras and mirrors. The mirrors are controlled by Melodifestivalen husdansare and cracks by dancers for hand pulling them apart. Amanda begins the number sitting the five mirrors close, a moment choreographer Sacha Jean-Baptiste, who had only to remain in the premises after Eddie Razaz number, call the “corridor”. Then move the mirrors around, and even Amanda moves around on stage. The number will also contain tungrök.
Martin Rolinski – “In And Out of Love”
Veteran Martin Rolinski is accustomed. “Hello Song Contest,” were his first words when he came in to torrepet. Then he went through the song with its camera angles without music and sang out his feeling for art. But he did not stay long in the room. Scene The show will be based on the dancers Eva Kavenstrand, Jessica Klingberg, Nathalie Rosenberg and Linda Hansson is trapped in cages with sticky yogurt, and to meet the technology rehearsed it already in place in the arena. There will be trapped and messy, Martin said. Shit as close to the audience. Here you can really run, I like it! said choreographer Sabina Dalfjäll when she saw the cage placement on stage.
State of Drama – “Falling”
The only band in Melodifestivalen 2013, a number that like several others this week is choreographed by Sacha Jean-Baptiste, who will work hard. The five band members will be on his was lit podium. On torrepet band did the song without any instruments or podiums, and the main discussion was about the singer Emil Gull Harbour returns to its original position after a walk to the edge of the stage. It is the worst thing you can do in live performances, because you lose the energy to go back to the starting position. But on TV it works, said Sacha.
Janet Leon – “Heartstrings”
