Wiwi: What the hell is the lead singer Dmitry wearing, and who told him it was a good idea to use scissors in the dark? There’s a strange sense throughout all of this that he is very aware of the cameras. At times he tries too hard to pout. That’s expected to a certain degree, but it comes off as very forced. I also get an overwhelming sense that he is in love with himself (one quick note: if you love yourself, you wouldn’t wear so much foundation; show yourself so we can love you as you are). I’m still a fan of the song, and I think the LED lighting fits with the “garage” element of all this. But Dmitry needs to take dance lessons and mix it up a bit more. The raising of the arm and pointing to the sky trick gets old fast.

Deban: It’s sad to say, but this was terrible! As much as I love this entry (read the Wiwi Jury verdict here), the rehearsal fell flat. What Litesound needs to realise is that they are the winners. They got through to Baku despite all the adversity that took place in Minsk. They don’t need to shout every word into the microphone. They should just pace themselves and sing. When they shout ‘We’re against them all,’ it feels like a personal attack. It’s not fun anymore. As a matter of fact, it’s freaky! They all lack vigour. They look dreadfully tired, and their buzz seems forced. I’m not buying the message in this performance. The LED lights don’t help either. As a matter of fact, it’s annoying.

It’s just a rehearsal, but I’m more convinced than ever that they have no idea what to do with this song. The music, the staging, the styling, the graphics, and the lighting are all arbitrary and indifferent, leaving the band still overexerting themselves awkwardly to compensate.

It can be allowed that they might be tired after traveling, and we can’t expect them to have full energy anyway, it’s a practice. The reviewers could understand the latter with Switzerland, wo why not here? Well well, no I’m taking this too seriously, and no, I’m not Belarussian. 😉

@Julia: I think it’s called “honesty.” This rehearsal is TERRIBLE.
