Eurovision 2012 – Today saw the resumption of rehearsals by acts in both semifinals. Russia kicked off this morning. They got a huge round of applause in the press conference where journalists were watching on the big screen. They’d also brought a large cut out of themselves where you could put your face in and be a granny! Check out their rehearsal video here:
Finland were next up, followed by a rather quiet press conference with no-one really not seeming to know what to ask Pernilla Karlsson…
Hungary’s Compact Disco had people humming along in the press conference, but they really were rather like background music.
Austria’s Trackshittaz were up next. Not only were they woki-ing their popo, they were lighting up more today with LEDs on their outfits. Unfortunately it was lost a little in the bright lights of the backing screens, but according to singer Lukas, they’re going to tweak that before the final performance.
We headed off into the hall to see Moldova to see Pasha Parfeny, who had me dancing along. It’s a fun happy song. Backing dancers and singers are looking good and their happiness is infectious.
Last up was Ireland. Jedward‘s fountain worked properly this time, and danced along with them. It looks like they’ll be getting wet at the end of their performance…
Have the rehearsals today made you change your mind about any of the acts’ chances of qualifying? Let us know.
