William: During their second rehearsal at Eurovision 2015, Norway’s Mørland and Debrah Scarlett had a lot more chemistry. They stood closer as they sang and at times seemed to grasp for each other. They’ve added more movement — walking back and forth and around — and it really ups the ante. This felt alive in a way it didn’t during their first rehearsal, and they now fill the stage. Tighter camera angles have helped with that too. They are back in it to win it, y’all! Debrah’s hair was slightly straighter today and the lack of volume looked more elegant. They’ve clearly studied their first rehearsal pretty closely: These minor tweaks make a major difference.

She has improved a lot, we can’t tell how the final product will look with the camera angles on tv, but I don’t think the chemistry we’ve seen with Estonia or the Czech Republic is there. The bit at the end where they both sing facing the audience looks quite lame.

They will qualify, but I don’t think they will bother the top-10.

The song is really boring and not a lot happens until about 2:20 so you would expect them to do something using the LED screen for those first two minutes or some sort of performance but…no! I do not like this song much but still, there is a real big chance of this disappointing badly during the final.

Of course it’s hard to tell with only this wide angle but both seem to have really stepped up the acting and chemistry. Faith restored, I’m pleased my faves won’t screw up their great chances.

Hi Leo :- Did they not wear white in their first rehearsal? Or have I totally missed your “argument” and you are referring to before Vienna? Moving on to what happened last year………What happened with The Common Linnets was quite unique and may not happen again. It was NOT just about close ups and camera angles. The viewers identified with the couple, the love story and the lyrics and the will they won’t get back together. The couple looked good together and it was that chemistry that was the winner, the public bought into the whole thing and believed it.… Read more »

Judging by how they are filming it, I think it is going to look simply stunning on TV.

It’s cool, it’s simple. I love the way it is presented, I’m sure it would be much better in front of the camera

The fact is that we are guessing when all we have to go off is one wide camera angle shot. It’s an intense song, requiring some intense close ups and good acting from the singers. Impossible to know how this will come across until we see it on the TV Thursday. I think it could finish anywhere between 8th and 1st….but for it to win they still need to reveal some more tricks in the staging I think.

Eugene:.

Hi Eugene – You are a real MONSTER …. like me (hehehe). How you’re doing ?

After all what we have seen this one remains a top entry for this year. TOP 10 !!
And I am really glad to see that some artists like NORWAY are following our advices from the press wearing WHITE WHITE Dresses on this particular stage at
“Wiener Stadthalle”. This change of colours could make the Difference !
What do you think about my argument ?

This one could be the flop at the top. It’s subtle and not powerful or a wow as far as the staging is concerned, but they have gone for the TCL close up approach it seems. Still a top top song. Debrah looks stunning and her vocals and harmonies are much much better. Not sure this is Top 5 after seeing this though, but will need to see what this looks like on TV.

I’m still a bit underwhelmed – not sure if that very minimalistic staging is going to be enough, since the first 2.5 minutes of the song are basically the same over and over again. But we’ll see, they might add a little more to it and make it more attractive for televiewers.

After watching the first few from SF2, I would rank the following:
1. Norway (much better than the 1st)
2. Montenegro
3. Malta (nice improvement)
4. Lithuania
5. Ireland
6. San Marino (it’s nice but hate the song)

Looks good. I would have left to see them going with light brown or auburn couloured clothes but this is much better than their first rehearsal. The song is excellent obviously.

Such beautiful ballad <3
My 3rd favorite on the 2nd SF & my 9th favorite overall <3
Sure qualifier if it goes as planned 4 Morland & Debrah Scarlett & they can finish on top places of the final…But im not sure if it will be Norway that will gonna win Vienna's Vision though..
It won't really be #Bergen2016 at least 4 next year..
