Waylon

The Netherlands second rehearsal

Next up is Waylon for the Netherlands, whose first rehearsal was very critically received due to the stage act. Honestly I am not expecting any changes, but we will see in a few minutes after the first run.

No changes indeed - in the hall the first part of the performance is everything you'd expect this song to have as a staging, but later on when the crumping gets in it starts looking stranger, even though it seems to me it has been toned down a bit..

The Netherlands first rehearsal

Usually The Netherlands are not really known for bringing props on stage, but this year we do. It's a flashing beginning as Waylon and his band members - three guitarists and a drummer who at times also double as a dancer with some very particular choreography that reminds me most of all of the Italian gorilla from last year. The guitars are being played while moving up and down in sync.

Later the backings all leave their instruments and dance / do acrobatics - quite a lot happening on stage which is what I had not expected, it distracts from the song and Waylon's very good vocals, which are really the best part of this performance.

Waylon's image is as expected, quite flamboyant with a leopard jacket.

How did the Netherlands' first rehearsal go?

Hey guys,

We've had three acts so far, with much more to come. Kicking the afternoon rehearsals off are Dutch superstars Waylon and Ilse Delange, who decided to give Eurovision a go as 'The Common Linnets'. They've had their first rehearsal today. Here's the run through.
