The hot favourite for Eurovision 2016, Sergey Lazarev from Russia has just completed his second rehearsal of “You Are The Only One” at the Globen Arena and after a small number of technical glitches in the beginning, Sergey came out on top after a stellar third run-through of his performance
Sergey has only finessed the things that went wrong during his first rehearsal. The camera angles are shaper and cleaner and everything looks far more expensive. Sergey is dressed entirely in black, which makes the visuals behind him stand out even more.
However, in the press centre we could see some issues with the lighting in the first two run-throughs. As Sergey lay down on the screen as the visual spins, spotlights were disrupting the visuals and causing bright flashes on the screen. Sergey also seems incredibly tired after his performance – looking very flustered and sweaty.
The third run-through however was flawless. There was not one wrong thing in that rehearsal and it truly cements Russia as a favourite in this years contest.
