Based on the snippets, it seems all the delegations put some good effort on these performances. I personally love the style behind the Georgian one (those outfits!) and how cute everything about the Dutch performance is. Italy and Poland look very polished too.

There’s something so interesting about Maiú’s voice, it’s almost like he came from an old british rock band. It would be a distinctive sound even for the adult Eurovision.

All agreed. My position with JESC is that of an awkward grandfather who would rather the children not be given the keys to the castle in the first place. But, if they are going to put on a show, they better do it well. This year looks like a good one so far.

I don’t follow JESC that closely (and partially because I share part of your concerns about it) and I only watched the last 3 years of the contest, but I have the feeling the organizers genuinely try to keep things more relaxed and ludic. Hopefully we won’t have an online mob attacking the winner this time. If it’s unpleasant when this happens with adults, it’s even worst when people target a child.

Wow Ireland! Vocals were on point! I just hope they get a good result. They wouldn’t deserve to come bottom 5 tbh. “Soar” is so uplifting and energetic and he’s really selling it.

The only obvious thing here is that the stage is AWSOME. For the rest, a lot of disappointment for me with many entries: Spain, Italy (totally off key), Georgia (Don’t like the staging and the dance at all), Germany (what a mess…). On the other hand, Portugal’s staging seems extremely beautiful. I’m so-so with today’s rehearsals.

That is rude. I am Georgian and I like how most people sand. You could have just said what country you liked. What a mess WhiteSox.

I found Germany’s performace so wholesome, I really enjoyed it so much! I think they’ll be a great opener. The rest did as well as I expected them to do, Poland and Spain were fantastic, all the others were good and Ireland was meh (sorry). I’m excited for tomorrow, I, again, can’t wait for Armenia, Russia and North Macedonia.

Italy and Portugal by far. Poland was at 0:36 completely out of tune.

WTF, it’s a song contest. One thing is sure, Poland will not be in the top 3.

That is not how you talk to CHILDREN. And by the way, Poland is on second place.
