Black and white atmosphere to start Michael Rice performance, there are a lot of stars on the background and it's quite dark. He starts moving on stage on the 2nd verse. Universe pictures become brighter on the 2nd chorus. The choir makes an entrance on the bridge and hall lights up. Vocalists are dressed in white, they make a circle and there are nice effects on the floor. Overall a performance gives a John Lundvik feeling with a bit of smaller-scale approach.

Italy 2nd rehearsal

Italian performance is quite strange. There are 3 dancers who are doing quite weird moves, which I totally don't get, and there are figures of a kid, mother and father and Mahmood himself on the backing screen. There are some lyrics in English on the screens as well like - Money don't buy you love. In the runs, Mahmood is changing his outfit, and red/white one used in the last run fits better.

France 2nd rehearsal

Performance starts with projections on the face of Bilal, then he walks to the front of the stage. There are lyrics displayed on screens. Plus size model - Ballet dancer appears on stage. I think it is a great idea to involve her. Another dancer who is doing sign language translation appears on the stage and interacts with Bilal, who then quickly moves across the stage and dances, in the end, all three artists join together in the central stage. This will really do well.
