The Eurovision 2017 second rehearsals are coming thick and fast. Next to take to the stage are Greece’s Demy, Poland’s Kasia Mos and Moldova’s SunStroke Project. Did their tweaks elevate their stage shows? Read on to find out…
Greece — Demy, “This is Love”
As any stage designer knows, water is a vital ingredient when an upside down waterfall is a centrepiece of your staging. So it’s only natural that Greece’s Demy decided to serve some Ruth Lorenzo wet hair realness during her second rehearsal. Shining and matted down, her hair helped her look like a glorious mermaid come to life. Thankfully she wore peach-coloured dress rather than a fin. The elevating platform is better hidden than in the first rehearsal, so her ascent feels much more magical. Vocally she and her backing vocalists were still struggling with the essential “This is looooove” high note. She’s going to need to hit it to earn the jury’s love.

Poland — Kasia Mos, “Flashlight”
Pull out your flashlight and shine it on Kasia! During her second rehearsal the Polish beauty traded in her first white gown for a slightly more revealing bandage dress, which showed off her ample assets and silky shoulders. It has a deep thigh split that teases her perfect pins and shows off her left stiletto, which features an ankle strap and a vertiginous spike that literally has her on point.

Moldova — SunStroke Project, “Hey Mamma!”
They delivered one of the most eye-catching performances of the first rehearsals, so Moldova kept things largely the same on Thursday. Perhaps the most obvious difference is that they came in full dress, wearing their now iconic tuxedos with decorative white lining which we first saw at O Melodi Pentru Europa. As ever the guys nailed their choreography, thrusting and jumping with abandon. Their backing dancers, who wore casual wear earlier in the week, have resurrected their wedding dresses from Chisinau and carry bouquets as they sing and dance. It’s as delightful as ever.
