Deen & Dalal ft. Ana Rucner & Jala from Bosnia & Herzegovina have just completed the second rehearsal for their song “Ljubav Je” at Eurovision 2016. This rehearsal is the first time we’ve seen Team Bosnia in their full dress and girl, they are looking fierce. The ladies of the group are slaying in some red and gold medieval attire and the men look sharp in black trench coats.

The performance starts with Dalal, Ana and the backing vocalists draped in gold foil blankets, representing people suffering from the refugee crisis – and not rotisserie chickens as we first thought.

Deen & Dalal are still separated by a barbed wire wall, again emphasising the key message of the refugee crisis in the staging.

The drama has been bought. Bosnia and Herzgovina are here to spread a message and they are doing it successfully.

This could actually come across well if they make some good camera decisions. Being late in the show and the number of countries friendly to B&H, this could qualify.

@GlennSimons I think people’s problem is that the staging is too literal i.e. The fence and silver wraps which comes across as cheesy.
Ukraine and Serbia have a much more subtle approach to their stories.

Staging is cheap and looks like a total mess. Surely they could have figured out something better… This is not good for Bosnia’s chances.

Score based on jury criteria 5/10

Plenty going on to hold your attention and the cellist looks amazing…………then the rapping starts and kills it all. It is like they had a dated song and tried to make it current by adding the rap. Not for me.

B&H fans will be doing some nail biting.

Bosnia qualified with worse songs before so this decent song will qualify too.

It’s at least the 4th title today with the word “Realness” in the title. I’m already over the limit with “slay.”

I don’t understand why are people getting so freaking judgmental on this?
Ok, they are talking about refugees with this staging, but why is it bad or forbiden ? Jamala is making it about genocide, Sanija Vucic is singing about domestic violence in very strange lyrics, but no one is taking it against them in the way most people do with Dalal Deen and rest of the co.

It’s nice, it has message, it’s effective and strong.

The song is so good and delivered well by all involved but I am still worried about the staging. Their music videos to this point have emphasised brightness and to take such a dark turn, changes the song too much for me.
Also, the four artists are not coming together particularly well. When one of them is not performing, the staging is not giving them anything to do. They seem to just be standing there uncomfortably…..waiting….

Having said that, the end of the song is fantastic and should be enough to ensure a comfortable qualification.
