Sami: I liked András Kállay-Saunders’s first rehearsal much much more than his performance from A Dal. Based on the 30 second clip, he really needs some more vocal coaching. Also, I really hope this is not the final costume. The strong song deserves more than just a sleeveless t-shirt…

Wiwi: I was inside the press center watching Kállay-Saunders rehearse and the vocals were amazing! The audio quality of the video does not do him justice. First the positive: I like how the two dancers interact and their various moves. At one point the female dancer does a standing split at the piano—her leg extends up and then beyond her head. It’s very Yulia Lipnitskaia. Now the bad: I think the LED is a bit frantic with way too many lightning effects. (The floor LED is great though and suggests a frenzied state of running, which fits with the song).

Billy: Very nice! Hungary was smart to include a female pianist and two dancers. The show is similar to the national final, but Kallay-Saunders literally sprints to a finish here. It’s lovely but will clearly impact his vocals. As for the graphics, I love the lights, especially when it begins to “rain”. I thought the wall of cubes were used very cleverly to build drama.

Patrick: This is amazing. The two dancers are so emotional with that what they do, and András did well with his vocals.  That said, he should keep on training! I’m not a big fan of the background because it’s really basic and nothing special. It’s good that the screen has been created in dark colours, but there is no special moment when I say: WOOOOOW. All in all a wonderful first rehearsal for Hungary!

@Marcelo, that’s right. It’s such a shame they didn’t realize this opportunity.

@ Rashad – ditto! it really is a great opportunity for social awareness-raising, and as such should not be let slip away

I like the choreography, but it could be better. I know, they can’t bring someone to the stage who is under 16, but they could send a social message during the stage performance. They could also do a social campaign. There are a lot of children suffering from domestic abuse, he could be the voice for them. I’m probably asking too much for a Eurovision entry, but I personally like songs or in general art with social responsibilities.
His voice sounds great. Good luck András!
