Malta’s Claudia Faniello and Romania’s Ilinca feat. Alex Florea took to the stage today for their second rehearsals at Eurovision 2017. From moving ballad to over-the-top Alpine yodelling, it was certainly a study in contrasts! But both of them managed to maintain the momentum they built earlier in the week.
Malta — Claudia Faniello, “Breathlessly”
Standing tall and sounding great, Claudia slipped into a new dress that fit her like a glove and featured more sparkles and gold trim. She showed up with a fresh blow dry and parted her hair down the middle, letting her tendrils falls in lovely curls to her breasts. The wind machines added a nice touch and fit well with the idea of being breathless.

Romania — Ilinca feat. Alex Florea, “Yodel It!”
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! Ilinca and Alex kept their performance largely the same and it still featured the burst of colour, the cannons and the playful swagger. Alex seems to be in much greater control now as he mounts the cannon and didn’t slip off once. Ilinca sizzled in a thigh-skimming red dress with plunging neckline. She’s in her element and loving it.
