William: The sun is rising in “Amanecer” and it’s also rising for Edurne. The Spanish songstress slayed during her second rehearsal. This feels tighter, sleeker, and sexier. The opening LEDs and camera angles create more drama, particularly the watery bubbles which at times flow in the direction of Edurne’s swaying body. When her backing dancer Giuseppe rips off her red cape it comes as more of a surprise. And what a surprise it is: She revealed a shinier dress that invokes sunshine, the Spanish Golden Age and sprawling empire. Giuseppe also shows us the results of his special Eurovision diet: He goes shirtless as he lifts, spins, and thrusts Edurne into the air. The lighting goes dark during this sequence. It adds mystery and drama and totally elevates the sequence.
