Second semi rehearsal (BOSNIA)

WOW! I just saw the performance in the hall myself... oh my god. I don't think Bosnia has ever had a better performance. What a classy act! The audience was crazy for the song, and I was really left speechless...

I taped the performance, and hopefully it came out good... you can find it at (the sound on the file is bad, sorry...)



First semi rehearsal, part III (Bosnia + Iceland)

Evo Bosne!! Nisam dosad nista vidio tako da ce mi ovo biti prvi utisak. First impression of Bosnia here, folks!

Stage looks very dark in the beginning. Everyone is dressed in white and standing.sitting motionless on stage during the first part of the song. Hari stands on his own in the front. I have to say I LOVE the loko of the stage. It's very mood, you can only see the stars in the back, no stairs at all.

Ako te sutra zaprose... sounds great... and everybody wakes up. There is a violin players, an accordioon players, a drum players and two guitars on the stage. Wonderful stating, I'm very impressed!!

The people in the back get up and join Hari top sing the last parts of the song and then they walk away, very slowly in rhythm.

Sto voljeh tebe... LEJLA!! Lights go up and the entire stage is lit up... AWESOME, AWESOME!

The last song... Iceland. Very colorful stage! There is a huge woman's show that Silvia climbs up and down. She has quite an outfit on! Something like from the video, very extravagant. There are screens behind her with two dancers jumping out of them, They crawl in front of her, wearing masks. Very unique staging. There are tons of props on stage with her, and there is also a stripping... There are a couple of candy canes, one of which has the phone which she uses to call God :))) It's wonderful, delibaretly over the top... think Agurbash but as a joke!! The male dancers also strip, now in they're very short shorts... Fireworks go off in the back! Nice, nice, I like!


First semi rehearsal, part II

So it's Estonia on now. They're all dressed in blue and white. The backers are stationary, dancing in place behind her in the back of the stage. This song is very ordinary though... I'm getting the Lithuania 2005 vibe, I'm afraid. Three of the backers join her later in dance. They're all doing a good job, but...


First semifinal rehearsal

Frist - Croatia last night... I was very impressed and immediatelly started SMS-ing people that Severina will win. The performance reminds of Elena last year in a way.

I have tickets for tonight's, second, semifinal rehearsal. Right now I am watching the last portions of the first rehearsal in the press center.

Lithuania is on now... terrible song, as we all know; it's a children's song and the shouting men don't do much for it. One of them plays the fiddle and one of them dances around the stage like the maniac. I can't believe that six gronw men can sing something like this in front of everybody... terrible.

The Portuguese girls look ridiculous... I'm sure you all have seen picture of their uhm "cosutmes" in other places. The song is shit of course and I'm still surprised that a popular group like Nonstop allowed themselves to be represented by a song like this... The performance is OK, there's nothing special going on, they're just dancing around basically.

And here's Carola... nice start in the dark and then the light shines when she starts singing. LOOOONG trunk on her dress and of course the win is rather strong :) She sounds very strong, as always; she has one hell of a voice. It seems as though she is alone on stage, save for the person holding the end of the trunk that was just pulled off her, revealing a tan-goldish-silver pant-and-shirt outfit. AH, here come the backing singers from out of nowhere bringing with them big transparent white flags that they wave in the air with the beat.

Now they've gotten rid of the flags, danced with her a bit and then picked up the flags again.

Strong showing from Sweden, but I don't think it was excellent. She sings it well enough though.
