Angus: God this is a bit bleak. The vocal’s really dull and the guitar-riffs just make it sound like a carbon copy of a dreary Gary Barlow song. If this doesn’t break Malta’s streak of qualifications to the final since 2012 I don’t know what will. Also could they have gotten a tattier looking piano?

Patrick: Oh wow – this is stunning! I really liked Firelight’s performance already in their first rehearsal but this time they really did a perfect job. I’m still a big fan of the selfies in the background. The staging was amazing this time with all the lights and the colours! Vocally they’re still solid—especially the lead-singer. His voice has a unique timbre. A wonderful opening for the second day of second rehearsals. Bravo Malta!

Richard should move to the centre stage /walk to the camera in the mid chorus to reflect the coming home feeling!!

I also like the selfies background, it gives a nice and personal touch to the performance (:

This is dreary, the vocals are awful and it goes precisely nowhere. I couldn’t wait for these three minutes to pass…

It’s ok, not sure about its chances of qualifying, it’ll be close call, juries could be its saviour.
