The class of 2019 has fallen victim to a multitude of technical woes throughout the rehearsals. Thankfully, many appear to have them under control. This includes Portugal… we think.

Speaking to our William at the Eurovision 2019 opening ceremony, Conan Osíris was somewhat elusive on whether the rehearsal issues had been fixed. “I think so, I hope so, I want to. It has to be fixed. Right now!”, he says grinning. We’ll take his jovial nature as a good sign.

The “Telemóveis” star made a bold sartorial choice on the orange carpet. Was it a black version of his green stage outfit? “Not quite. This is a version of Ursula’s costume”.

As in the sea witch from Disney’s Little Mermaid? “Yes… I’m obsessed with it. I burnt my neighbour’s VCR player playing it over and over.”

He may be taking style inspiration from the villain, but which character does he relate to most? “I don’t know. Ariel is Cancer, I guess. So, not her. She’s a little bit dumb. But I don’t know. Like maybe the dog? Yeah”.

Of course, one couldn’t speak to Conan without also talking to his righthand man — Joao.

Like Conan, the dancer was also in good spirits.

“Actually, today was the first day that I felt a little bit nervous. But like, it was a good nervous. Like, ‘oh my god, it’s going to be like tomorrow, the big rehearsal. So oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, brrrrrrr’. Yeah, let’s dress up and go to the party. Everything is going to go good”.

He’s known for his breathtaking choreography and extreme moves, including a death drop. But has he ever hurt himself?

“It hurt once. Just once, in the last rehearsal of the first semi-final in Portugal. Like I didn’t did it well. So it hurt a little. But like, I always do it good. Hopefully, I will do it good the next times”.

And what part of the body did he injure? “My butt baby!”

Do you see Ursula in Conan? Will he make the final? Let us know in the comments below.

To those interested: RTVE is uploading fragments of the jury rehearsal to its website (yes, what we are going to see in our TVs). It’s weird but RTVE says they have permission to do it. In @eurovision_tve you have links to their website with all the 1-minute clips.

It seems it’s only available for those in Spain. It’s very unusual, I don’t remember of any broadcaster doing the same before the semis even happened.

I wouldn’t be surprised if they announced that it was a mistake and they just misunderstood a message. This is totally unusual, especially when we see that only RTVE is doing it

The most recent rehearsal up on you tube is like 100% percent better than the first and second, huge applause after the performance, it is so amazing, i was always in love with this song but i couldnt take my eyes off the screen for the 3 minutes, it was perfect. Plus they have loosened the costume so Conan is showing some chest and its not so tight round his neck like at the first rehearsal and just that small change makes a lot of difference.

If it will not go to the final I will be upset a lot!!! This is the best Portugal entries for me ever. I like Salvador too but more his personality, charisma but not a song. Conan it’s a full package of joy. The lyric of a song just need an Oscar, specially when he singing in acoustic version, I cried, the beat he made, I just don’t believe he made at home in his old laptop. I will come this summer to Portugal and just want to visit any concert of him. Done. Good luck !!!!!!!!
