Semi 2 also offers some exciting songs. What I’m hoping for? – A lot of color and dance for San Marino. Senhit in a cool wig. Flo Rida projected on led screens. – For Estonia to brighten the contrasts. Something dramatic, but bit less stiff. – For Czechia, I expect it to be good anyway. Something tells me he’ll climb up the beting odds. I would love to see the actress from the video interacting with him, and adding some physical comedy. – I have big expectations for Greece. Some form of flight simulation would be cool. – For Austria,… Read more »

Looking forward to this 3rd day. Its so much fun! What do we think of the stage? A lot of people said it’s boring but now i see it in full action i think it looks pretty impressive. Still need to wait till next week when we see it on tv though, but i think this years ESC will be a HQ production for sure. Good luck to all artists and host broadcaster!

Hello guys. I’m gonna be a bit off topic, but I have to ask this somewhere. Have the juries for ESC 2021 been published? I’m not following fan sites, forums etc. this year so I don’t really know. I’ve been searching on the Net for a while to find out this, but I couldn’t find an info about the juries nowehre.

I am super excited and hoping to have an “omg” moment with Czechia because of the catchy song and Benny’s sunny and humorous and humble-confident attitude!! The dancing from the video the other week got me very excited as well!! I am ready to enjoy once more the wonderful song of Iceland and verify my prediction about their staging!! I shall give Estonia a lot of love because I *loved* their Eesti Laul starting last year with the release of the studio cuts therefore my appreciation of the broadcaster is very high. I have to thank them for making my… Read more »

So hyped about Greece. I actually think that with the right staging Stefania could win.

Agree as well. Based on the performances we’ve seen if Fokas tells a magical story she can potentially win cos her vocals are on the spot

Not that he’s likely to front up for the first rehearsal. But, do we know if Flo Rida is expected in Rotterdam?

Looking forward to Iceland because Dadi and his band have already proven they can create a very fun performance. Also very curious about what San Marino may have in store. Looking forward to Moldova as well. The music video and lyrics set a very clear staging premise that would be very hard to screw up imo

I’m interested to see Greece. I think it might be a dark horse. Which would’ve been a sweet pun if she did ride a horse.

I can’t believe how San Marino can be one of the highlights of the year. Please Senhit, this is the moment, time to shine!

Nobody really knows. If Senhit does her 2nd rehearsal without Flo Rida next week, it’s unlikely he’ll be in Rotterdam.

I am kind of looking to watching all the performances. HOWEVER, I am really curious to see how San Marino, Czech republic, and Serbia will stage their performances.

I just know Benny Cristo is going to slay! I’m worried for senhit tho, the song could fall apart live, especially if Flo Rida won’t be present.

I think they can’t have green screen because it’s against the rules

What will you say if they do? They said it is something never done before and it is rumored to be green screen.

Maybe except for Greece and San Marino, I don’t have many/high expectations for tomorrow’s rehearsals. So, I’d be glad if someone changes my mind and surprises everyone tomorrow!
