We’ve reached the midpoint on day three of Eurovision 2022 second rehearsals. But before heading to lunch, we had Estonia’s Stefan take to the stage for his second rehearsal. How is “Hope” coming along? Let’s find out…
Estonia’s Stefan “Hope” — Eurovision 2022 second rehearsal
Padraig: Stefan has had a costume change for his second round of run-throughs. The black jacket, shirt and jeans have been swapped for white and beige. This is potentially to offer more contrast against the dead kinetic sun that looms menacingly over his entire performance. Stefan begins on the satellite stage with a sepia filter that harks back to the cowboy films of old. He strums his guitar as the filter fades away, before putting the instrument on his back as he makes his way to the main stage. It’s clear that the delegation envisions a lot of audience interaction, as much of Stefan’s time is spent singing to the arena while we are treated to multiple shots of currently empty seats. As we build towards the climax, Stefan runs back towards the satellite stage with a hop, skip and a jump. It ends with a return to the sepia before fading to black in the style of an old movie reel.
