montenegro d mol heaven eurovision 2019 first rehearsal

Casting High School Musical in Montenegro? Look no further than D Mol, y’all! The six members of Montenegro’s Eurovision 2019 act showed some great team spirit as they worked through technical and staging issues in their first rehearsal.

First things first: this was not a polished rehearsal, by any means. In more than one run-through, there were members of the production crew on stage actively pointing out marks for the singers. Whether this was a technical issue on the broadcaster’s part, we don’t yet know, but it didn’t help the haphazard staging at times.

At one point, the group come together in the middle of the stage. As the camera zooms in on them from above, they join hands in the centre and give a joint cheer. It’s very cheesy, but shows off some good team spirit. If they can keep that bond together and work on tightening up the issues with their staging as it is, there’s some positives that can be built on.

No music notation background? This new staging won’t allure well in the semi.

Well… it’s a mess, they have lots of homework to do. One thing that still bothers me is that they keep dressing these young singers as they were much older.

The suits remind me of Ari’s last year… and their fate is probably the same.

I feel bad for them, really. We could have Beyonce, Shakira, Gaga, Urie, Mars and Lambert there and this song would still be awful.

Sorry, @Purple Mask, but we both know who will probably end-up 17th in this semi. 🙁 There is a small chance a donation from Serbian televote will raise them to 16th, or even 15th, but I wouldn’t bet. I think they are all good performers, but this messy song / staging doesn’t let them shine. I’d gladly have them all represent Montenegro alone at some point, though.

Sorry, I’m just being honest… I know how you feel because there were times when my favorites were not considered qualifiers by any means. I remember when Juri Pootsmann, one of my 2016 winners, ended-up dead last in the semi. That was painful. Also, last year I hoped Montenegro could qualify, but they ended-up not to.

Costumes could be better, one of the girls with the skirt over the trousers looked weird. Vocals good. But let’s be honest, they’re not going through.

Just a long stare. That’s it. Their outfits look good, though.

No need to beat around the bush here- it was a disaster. They were vocally good but like Finland I prefer the NF performance.
