William: Polina’s staging was already stellar (and, given all the stars and comets, intersellar). During today’s second rehearsal it was more of the same and we weren’t disappointed. The aerial shots over her dress seem to be closer this time around, and they really show off the LED projections on her dress. When the bright white lights sparkle on her oversized train, she looks like a glamorous jelly fish. But we are happy for her to sting us. From the voice to the swirling LED to her commanding stage presence, this retains its Top 5 potential. Well done, Russia!

Padraig: This just gets better and better. Russia are definitely on track for a top 10 placing. Polina is just too good. At times the stage is a mish-mash of ideas, one moment it’s uber classy – her dress, the next it’s a cheese overdose – her backing band and the globe. But with vocals like those, Polina can get away with just about anything. A class act!
