The final artist to rehearse today is IMRI from Israel. We have just watched his first run through of I Feel Alive live on screen and here is our initial reaction.

Summary in a sentence

IMRI dances his way through I Feel Alive with energy and good vocals and is definitely a perfect closing to the show.

Staging

The LED backdrop started black and white with the use of red becoming stronger as the song progresses. There are two dancers who begin dancing from the second verse and three backing singers that join the dance for the middle 8. Overall a very choreographed and effective performance.

Vocals

IMRI was very good vocally, there were a couple of poor notes but that is natural for a first rehearsal especially considering the amount of dancing he is doing.

Costumes

He was wearing a black vest and trousers while his two dancers were dressed in white. The three backing vocalists were in black.

Watch the rehearsal!

That concludes day 4 of rehearsals! Remember to tune in to our live stream from the press centre for instant reactions to each rehearsal from 9am CET tomorrow for day 5.
