He’s singing “Our Choice” in tomorrow night’s first semi-final. And following his first rehearsal, Iceland’s Ari Ólafsson caught up with our William.

“The rehearsal was great”, Ari says. “Coming from a crazy flight and it was early in the morning, but still you always need to up yourself”.

Ari is impressed:”This is unlike anything else. This is the huge stage. The arena is beautiful and so empowering”.

His outfit is designed to represent the complexity of life: “the red is the lava underneath and the rest (the white colour), the ice underneath. It represents like complicated pain: the stories that we have like pain, love and sorrow”.

“There have been difficult choices for me. Like keeping my emotions in, even righteous anger”.

Ari concludes with a classy Stevie Wonder cover.

He’s so nice… I think he would be good in Broadway or something.

I like him. I like his song. But his presentation is weak. And his outfit is weird…
