William: During his third take today, Azerbaijan’s Elnur Huseynov removed his dress shirt to reveal a t-shirt that said “Conchita U R Unstoppable.” Vocally, the same could be said of him. He seems to have finally found his rhythm and isn’t changing the vocals on every take now. He seems to have settled on a vocal routine. We give his vocal gymnastics a perfect 10. The dancing seemed less frantic today, and the pair (who now have matching blonde hair) have adjusted their routine slightly. At times it’s a bit more aggressive, as when the female dancer uses the male dancers’ foot as a vault (she was giving us some Svetlana Khorkina Russian gymnast realness). The dancing, and indeed the performance, is somewhat divisive. In the press room some people are whispering that it’s brilliant, while others say there’s too much going on. Regardless, it’s doused in mystery.
