As the first semi-final has already taken place yesterday and been an amazing show with a lot of surprises, we can be looking forward to tomorrow’s second semi-final. The dress rehearsals are already finished, here are some impressions of what to expect from tomorrow night:
As usual, there will be some great voices, some not so great voices, and a lot of weirdness – anything else wouldn’t be Eurovision. The greatest voices of tomorrow’s show will probably be Carl Espen’s (Norway) and Conchita Wurst’s (Austria). Those two don’t even need a lot of show on stage. As opposed to the Norwegian silent storm, The Shin and Mariko from Georgia will be taking us very loudly to a stormy sea with their performance – as stormy as their song. Some of the candidates of the second semi final lay their focus on their instrumens – as Firelight from Malta and Sebalter from Switzerland. Others concentrate rather on the dancing than on the music. With Lithuania, Ireland and Macedonia this is pretty disturbing – there are a lot of robotic movements – but a good way to take the focus off the actual song. Also Israel and Poland found a good way of distraction by wearing clothes as short as possible. We will also see some special things on stage tomorrow – like a trampoline with the rising Greece and the Romanian circular piano. We will see nothing, however, of Softengine from Finland because they seem to make use of all of Copenhagen’s lights for their performance. Besides a neat suit-wearing dancing performance from Belarus and Slovenian flutes there will also be a special guest as interval act tomorrow: The Australian singer Jessica Mauboy has the honor to perform the song “Sea of Flags” on the second semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest. This way the Aussis can be even more part of the Contest than they are already anyway.
