Today is the day of the finalists to rehearse in the Globe Arena. This will conclude the extensive days of long rehearsals. After this the dress rehearsals will take over and more details of the show will be visible like the intro, the postcards, the graphics and the interval act.
The host country Sweden had the first rehearsal of the day here at the Globe Arena. Frans seemed to be more relaxed as in the previous rehearsal. It’s still necessary to mention that Frans is still going to school and it’s his weekend now, so let’s hope that he don’t have any classwork to do. The stage performance is still good and also exactly the same than in the Melodifestvalen.
Amir from France had another great rehearsal. The stage design looks like in a galaxy and Amir jumps from star to star, looking for his goal. Everything appears really fresh and sympathetic and full of energy. Amir is a handsome guy with a big smile in his face. He is being seen as one of the big favourites this year. Maybe he can bring the ESC crown back to France after 37 years?
The German entry has no surprises at all. Everything is exactly like in the German national final, even the plastic trees. Jamie-Lee seem to like the stage and feels good there. A solid performance.
Francesca from Italy is having a lovely garden with flowers and fruits, lovely made but a bit kitschy, not as cool as in the video clip. The stage floor is shining in golden colours and at the end the picks a flower.
The two cool guys from the UK Joe & Jake also made a good impression on stage. Their voices sounded good and the good vibe is can be felt.

About me: Due to the fact that my parents are musicians, I have a gained a great enthusiasm for music. Since 1979 my interest in the Eurovision Song Contest has grown enormously. My first ESC I joined was in Dublin 1995. Six years later I founded the website eurovisionlive.com in the year 2001. The most fascinating part for me is the original idea of the Eurovision Song Contest – the peaceful contest of the European countries. I am very happy that I have the chance to contribute my little part for the greatest music show in the world.
