Oh no!! I am now completely confused. This was a very good dress rehearsal and now it is very difficult to decide what will win.
So, here is a short review with any major chages on the first rehearsal.
Excellent opening to the show.. I will not give much away as it will be nice to have the surprise on screen.
Then Helena sings My Number one.
Switzerland - Nice Performance - Good opening song
Moldova - Good performance of an ok song
Israel - Again Eddie sold this well and stage and it went down well with the crowd.
Latvia - No sound problems this time, performed well, nice applause from crowd
Norway - Not as strong as this afternoon but crowd loved it - Best reaction in the hall so far
Spain - Best performance by Las Ketchup so far but don't expect this to do very well
Malta - Really good performance from Fabrizio - Great reaction from the crowd
Germany - Very good performance , audience clapping along , great reaction in the hall
Denmark - Best performance so far from Denmark - This could take votes from Germany.
Russia - Excellent Performance. He has number 10 on his T shirt this time! Best reaction in hall so far.
FYR Macedonia - Excellent performance again
Romania - Best performance by Mihai by miles!!!! - This is now back up with the potential winners I think
Bosnia & Herzegovina - Excellent performance but can it overcome the curse of singing after the commercial break in the final
Lithuania - An excellent performance, love or hate the song, not booed as much tonight
United Kingdom - Came over really well , better than this afternoon but hampered by singing after Lithuania.
Greece - In my opinion, best performance by Anna Vissi to date, She is pacing her performances very well and is definitely in with a chance of winning for Greece again
Finland - A complete contrast to Anna Vissi and excellent reaction in the hall
Ukraine - Tina was just suberb again!
France - Virginie sang in tune this time compared to this afternnon. Not a great reaction from the audience though.
Croatia - Excellent performance . And an excellent reaction in the hall\
Ireland - A very good rehearsal but not as strong in my opinion as this afternoon
Sweden - The controversial performance where Carola hardly sang at all, saving the vouice for tomorrow. I just hope no technical hitch forces the playing of the backup tape.
Turkey - Good performance, but not as good as this afternoon, this still has a chance of a surprise win though I think
Armenia - A nice performance to finish the show
After this we had Nana Mouskoiuri on to turn the sandclock and then I left the arena to quickly do this review before heading to the Euroclub to beg for some drink tokens!
So, I will have to sleep on all this before sayiong who i think will win tomorrow night!!
