Semi-final one second rehearsals are done. Now, it’s time to look to the second semi. Finland’s The Rasmus kicked off the first batch of semi two run throughs with “Jezebel”. How did the rockers get on? Let’s find out…
Finland’s The Rasmus “Jezebel” — Eurovision 2022 second rehearsal
Padraig: It’s currently raining in Turin. And The Rasmus have come prepared. Frontman Lauri dons a large waterproof yellow trench coat, while his bandmates wear big yellow boots. Although given the rest of their rock n’ roll aesthetic, it’s questionable how effective their outfits would be at keeping them dry should they venture outside. We begin with a close-up shot of Lauri holding a yellow balloon. He soon lets go and as it floats away, the camera pans out to reveal that the stage is actually filled with black and yellow balloons. The remainder of the performance is a typical rock show. The band show off their stylish instrument playing techniques, while Lauri tears off his jacket to prance topless around the stage. It’s certainly a captivating opener for the semi. But, despite their decades of experience, some nerves appeared to be present and Lauri’s vocals were not the strongest.
