On May 7, the acts competing in the second half of the second semi-final completed their first rehearsals. We had white laser beams, colourful chameleons and lots of mirrors.
We asked you who you thought had the best rehearsal of the day. After counting 6,482 votes, we can reveal that Malta’s Michela topped the poll with 21.52% of the votes.
Dressed down, with her hair in a bun, Michela proved that weeks of rehearsals have paid off. Her chameleons switched between scenes of a desert, an aquatic wonderland, and a verdant jungle. And like in real life, Michela’s chameleons aroused your curiosity and she came on top with 1,395 votes (21.52%).
Close behind Malta is the bookies’ favourite Duncan Laurence of The Netherlands. You may have reservations about Duncan’s first rehearsal as you put him on second position with 1,312 votes (20.24%). That being said, he has given a promising rehearsal with some intimate moments that got the press centre quite emotional.
Rounding out the top three was Azerbaijan. This was definitely one of the biggest surprises of this day (and perhaps even one of the best rehearsals of the entire semi finalists’ acts). Chingiz sounded fabulous and the staging was also stunning with 2 robots projecting a heart onto his chest. It looks as if your hearts have fallen for him, as you awarded him 1,154 votes (17.80%). Overall, Azerbaijan finished third in the poll – an outstanding result, especially in light of previous’ predictions.
Curiously, this year second runner Sergey Lazarev of Russia received only 10.49% of the votes to finish fourth. We are guessing that too many mirrors can be confusing sometimes.
