Ten countries took to the stage of Rotterdam Ahoy arena to have their second rehearsal on 13 May. Destiny showed us a costume change, Stefania ironed out her green-screen glitches, Hurricane blew us all away, and that’s just a sample.
After reading the reviews from the press and watching the official rehearsal clips, we asked you to vote for which act you thought delivered the best second rehearsal out of these ten countries.
Y’all let your voices be heard. And now after counting 3,456 votes, we have a winner…
Stefania delivered your favourite second rehearsal on 13 May
Coming out on top is Stefania, just like she did in her first rehearsal poll. The star representing Greece earned 766 votes, which is 22.16% of the total.
We got to see a bit more of Stefania’s green screen tricks in this second rehearsal and her partly invisible dancers. These were the thoughts of wiwiblogger Padraig upon seeing Greece’s second rehearsal:
“Technically, this was a much better rehearsal for Greece. All the glitches seem to have been ironed out. Mercifully, Stefania’s midriff remains intact for the entirety of the performance. It’s all coming together in terms of choreo and vocals. However, there are movements of uncertainty in Stefania’s eyes. She’s not owning the stage quite yet.”
Second place in the poll goes to Malta’s Destiny, who picks up 671 votes (19.42%) for her performance of “Je Me Casse”. She decided to switch her wardrobe up for this second rehearsal and wore a sparkly silver dress (though kept the thigh-high pink boots from the first rehearsal). This change seems to have been a good one according to you, as it helped Destiny climb in the daily rehearsal poll after placing fifth following her first rehearsal.
The bronze medal goes to Daði og Gagnamagnið of Iceland. The group bring their quirky geek-chic charm to Eurovision thanks to their entry “10 Years”. Their visuals are filled with characters from their mobile game Think About Aliens and the group deliver a fun performance that keeps viewers entertained throughout. In the poll, Daði og Gagnamagnið earned 627 votes (18.14%).
Storming into fourth place are Hurricane from Serbia. The trio bring a full-on performance to the contest and they’ve been rewarded for it with 604 votes (17.48%).
Rounding out the top five is San Marino’s Senhit. While a certain rapper by the name of Flo Rida is still not present, that hasn’t stopped the Freaky Queen from turning heads herself. Senhit received 339 votes (9.81%).
