Day six at Eurovision 2019. Eleven second rehearsals ahead of us. And we kickoff with our final two from Semi-Final 1: Greece and San Marino.
Reactions to second rehearsals at Eurovision 2019: Greece and San Marino
Greece: Katerine Duska with “Better Love”
On Sunday she showed us the spirit of Aphrodite and at today’s rehearsal Katerine Duska had turned to Apollo to brighten the stage with the rays of the sun.
This was lighter, brighter and tighter than at first run throughs. On the floor, on the screens and on the stage the Greek lotus is in full bloom. Katerine has one of the best vocals in the semi-final and camera shots wise this looked better. There were a few problems with the lotus effect on the floor, but these had been ironed out by final runs.
Greece are certainly in the mix to win the semi.
San Marino: Serhat with “Say Na Na Na”
The second run of “Say Na Na Na” was verging on Laura Tesoro show closing energy territory.
Now as the performance opens, Serhat’s dancers are already on the move, and the kinetic energy they infuse the show with radiates throughout the entire performance.
This is fun, it will end the show with a bang and the screens look expensive. Serhat also looks looser on stage which helps sell the party atmosphere.
San Marino always has the odds stacked against it, but there is a sense in the press center that this may be inching in the right direction.
