Padraig: The biggest let down of the day? For weeks now Norway has been suggested as a potential dark horse. But after today, I seriously doubt we’ll be heading to Oslo any time soon. As with practically all the previous rehearsals, the vocals are fine. Alas, the staging is just a damp squib. The LED screen is virtually unused, save for some orange and white light. The costumes are also lacking. All white ensembles brought victory to Johnny Logan and El & Nikki, however, for a song as dark as this they seem inappropriate. There’s definitely something missing, whether it’s smoke, pyro or both.
