France - First rehearsal

Eran on Fri, 05/10/2019 - 14:50

The rehearsal starts with a shot on Bilal's face wearing a mask. It screens different faces on the mask. Bilal steps to the center stage (without the mask by now) and so does a "real size" dancer, who gets a lot of applause from the press. A second dancer joins in later. Bilal is dancing with them separately and then together. The video art colors are purple and gold, which goes along great with Bilal and co's white outfit. The beat of the new arrangement is smart, cause it made for a "show". Bilal is not accurate all of the time vocally but sounds fair throughout most of the performance.

Twin Twin are full of energy this morning.

A High energy performance for Twin Twin and much much much better vocals than the one we heard so far.

A lot going on on the LED screens. Lots of vibrant, colours in a cartoon'ish way. Lots of moustaches of course, with a special backdrop of a giant Moustache filled with flags of some countries taking part in this year's contest (Israel, Germany, Norway).

A very high energy performance from France, though they seem to have skipped some of the catwalk use for some reason. The charisma is there, just the vocals need to be a bit more on par.

A fun rehearsal which has the potential of being even better, if they keep working on their vocals.

First rehearsals for the Big five and Denmark

I can't believe it's over a week since I first went to get my accreditation badge here in the press centre. Now I'm all geared up to watch the first rehearsals of the big 5 countries and Denmark.

The Eurovision Song Contest has now really really kicked in.

The red carpet is later on today as well, together with a great night planned in the Euroclub.

I'm sure we'll have loads and loads of fun today!
