ESCXTRA: Live from Kyiv

Day 6: Omar Naber completes his second rehearsal for Slovenia – PREDICTION & REVIEW

ESCXTRA are live from Kyiv for day six of rehearsals ahead of the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest! Like yesterday, we can bring you live audio from the press centre television screens that show each rehearsal. The countries rehearsing today, in chronological order, are Armenia, Slovenia, Latvia, Serbia, Austria, F.Y.R. Macedonia, Malta, Romania, Ukraine, Italy, Spain, Germany, United Kingdom and France. Furthermore, read our handy guide for a more detailed look at this contest’s rehearsal schedule.

In addition, for our immediate reactions to every single rehearsal, you can follow our live stream from the press centre at the International Exhibition Center by visiting our YouTube channel. Also, you will also be able to listen live to each second rehearsal as it happens and give us your opinions in our live chat.

The next artist to take to the stage for her second rehearsal is Omar Naber from Slovenia. We have just watched his first run through of On My Way live from Kyiv and here is our reaction.

Staging overview

The LED backdrop has a black, blue and white theme with the chandelier being put to full use. The screens from the chandelier are fully lowered for the first half of the song and raise up during the key change. Omar is faultless vocally as always, although the song does lack modernity for me. He is wearing a black glittery jacket with a casually worn white shirt underneath.

Qualification prospects

I find this one quite tough to predict, his vocals should be rewarded and he is in a great running order slot. I think this will actually do better with televoters but juries will pull it down, similarly to Color Of Your Life last year but to a lesser extent. I’d give this 35% chance of qualifying. On the other hand, Wivian does think this will qualify using the Color Of Your Life comparison also.

Other reactions

The press here in the press centre gave this a patter of applause but was not as popular as Artsvik.

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 Triana Park as they rehearses Line next for Latvia. 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!
