William: Electro Velvet have ironed out many of the kinks from their first rehearsal. The backing vocalists jive better with Bianca and Alex, and the opening vocal tease — “Let’s dance!” — blends much better now. Bianca has covered up the bulky LED battery pack on her back with a white faux fur stole, ending all thoughts of self-detonation. Her dress illumination looked far more impressive as a result. ORF’s camera team have given this more drive with fast-moving cutaways that up the energy. Alex really relished his scat section — you can feel his enthusiasm as he stares into the camera — but Bianca seemed somewhat tired (perhaps she’s just holding back for Saturday). The highlight of the act is an aerial shot above the spiraling LED floor — it’s dizzying and memorable.
