The next artist to take to the stage for her second rehearsal is Artsvik from Armenia. We have just watched his first run through of Fly With Me live from Kyiv and here is our reaction.

Staging overview

The LED backdrop has a pink and purple theme which is a slight twist on the colour schemes used in the video, however the use of colour is quite similar. There are lots of very fast camera switches in the first half of the performance, identical to how they were used for LoveWave last year. In a change from the first rehearsal, Artsvik finishes posing like a bird on which a hologram of a bird appears and flies away on screen which is a really nice touch. Artsvik is perfect vocally and she is wearing a black and glittery pant-suit. Her dancers are also in black.

Qualification prospects

This is a very professional performance that is ready for the live broadcast right now. I think it lacks an instant hook to win a semi-final, but it is a 90% qualifer and a top 10 contender in the final.

Other reactions

The press are fully awake this morning, giving this lots and lots of applause!

Watch the rehearsal!

We will bring you video footage from this second rehearsal as soon as we have it!

Stay tuned for our reaction to Omar Naber as he rehearses On My Way next for Slovenia. Meanwhile, remember to tune in to our live stream from the press centre. There you can ask us your questions and tune in to some live stream interviews with special guests!

My first memory of watching the Eurovision Song Contest was back in 2001 and, over the years, my passion and enthusiasm for the contest has very much turned into an obsession. I adore music and I love geography, so this contest is a natural fit for me. If la la loving Eurovision was a crime, I'd certainly be a criminal!
