William: Armenia’s Genealogy just keep improving. During today’s second rehearsal they came with the same fierce vocals and facial expressions, but had clearly tweaked and enhanced their camera angles. The artists all seem to have a greater conection with the camera: It was almost like Inga and Tamar were staring into our souls! The LED floor features the lovely purple-ish map of the world much longer than in the first rehearsal, and the ticking clock floor looks even better. The tick-tick-tick of the visuals gives this rhythm and pace. There were a few stumbles during their first run-through — they tried to form a circle but it went all pear-shaped — but they ironed it out in subsequent takes.
Chris: A really impressive and confident performance keeps Genealogy right at the top of the semis for me. The few issues I had with the first rehearsal were quickly dispelled, with all six members really delivering today. The globe effect on the floor works better with some new camera angles too, as it lingers more to drive the point home. This is surely going straight to the top ten, if not better.

Padraig: Genealogy just get better and better. Fears of a car crash have proven to be completely unfounded. The group have really gelled. There was a moment when they bumped into each other as they entered centre stage, and Vahe still seems like a weak link. But there’s no denying that this will be in the final.
