Chris: A good song with a good performance with a very good singer…but is this really a Eurovision winner? At this point, I’d have to say no. Guy and his team are working it out vocally and have a great connection with each other, but the stage performance is hardly inspiring. It feels a little bit flat, with street lights and a moving road leading Guy in to the city. There’s no real energy and it doesn’t feel as fun as you’d have hoped for a song that makes you want to get up and dance. It feels like a performance you’d see from a contestant on the X Factor.
Australia: Guy Sebastian’s first rehearsal
Padraig: Slick, professional, hollow. Guy’s rehearsals went without a hitch. Choreography and vocals were all great. Staging was good too, and looked expensive, but something about it felt insincere. The background shows the journey to a party. We see empty roads morph into a buzzing city scape. Giant street lights occupy the stage. Is this supposed to make us want to party? Because I’m just thinking why?
