Now that I've seen the staging from Bulgaria from the hall, I like it even less than the first time. The stage looks very empty and dark and some of the visuals make it look only bigger (and emptier), thinking mostly about the 'box' that appears on the large led screen after the panels around and above him rise into the air. On a positive note, these panels don't interview with the view of the audience.
What I think has improved is the way Kristian looks. He is now all dressed in black, which looks better than the black and white from a few days ago. Vocally he is excellent and the song is very accessible. So,all in all, mixed feelings on this for me as well.
