Ryan O'Shaughnessy

Ireland second rehearsal

The staging for Ireland looks very dark from the hall. In the middle of the first run some strange things happen as there are sudden spotlights everywhere - looked more like a mistake than anything intentional. Ryan's vocals were good, however in the second verse a male backing vocal could be heard that sounded really bad. Let's see if this will be improved in the next runs.

The second run looked and sounded a lot better - still a pity though that people in the hall will hardly get what's going on on stage.

Ryan is wearing a black suit and stands in front of a blue background with a street lantern behind him.
As the first bridge appears, we see the female backing singer on a piano, but can't really hear her yet. There are also two backing singers further in the back. The second verse introduces the gay couple dancers, first on the bridge and later on the main stage. Their choreography is largely the same as in the video.

Vocally Ryan is as solid as we have seen in his earlier performancees, a good start for Ireland!

As the rehearsal continues, the performances continue to be pretty much what we already saw in the first run. The fake snow falling is not really needed though, and there are some shots of the dancers from the back that need improvement as well.
