November 18: Malta, Bulgaria, Albania second round of rehearsals review
What can I say about Destiny. She is full of energy, she is extremely well trained, a true professional and her voice is stunning. This girl should win just because she exists. The song is great for one big reason: it’s different from any other entry this year. Jazz soul dance song, it will make ME at least, dance on Saturday night (don’t laugh I can dance too besides bitching on oikotimes).
Gabriela and Ivan rehearsed today delivering their song as perfect as possible. We all know that although a great song, it doesn’t have the winning spirit in it. The vocals are great, the stage presentation a bit indifferent with the dance act behind the singers as a simple ballet act. There is something missing to become a winner song. As a participation though it is considered flawless in terms of vocals and professionalism. It will be huge during the show, it’s the host country after all and they deserve a big applause after a great hosting and organisation by BNT.
Last country to rehearse today is Albania (and we conclude the live coverage for November 18th). Mishela Rapo is giving her best vocal and stage performance. Although static I have to admit that I love her dress which writes “hello” in many languages. Her tune which is also different from any of the song tunes this year is about reaching out to all people. The message is spread. Though the monotonous tune is not making this entry memorable and unfortunately, although excellent vocals by Mishela, is not a winner song. But I will keep saying that this is a song the message of which MUST be spread especially after what is happening in the world!
