The next artist to take to the stage for their second rehearsal is Fusedmarc from Lithuania. We have just watched their first run through of Rain of Revolution live from Kyiv and here is our reaction.
Lithuania’s staging is very red in its theme just as we saw in the national final and in the first rehearsal. Viktorija is in her red dress, and her bandmate and backing vocalists are on stage in black dress. Her vocals are on point, although they won’t be to everyone’s taste.
Despite its good running order draw and staging, ultimately the song just isn’t good enough to qualify for the final. Chances of qualification are 20% just in case their diaspora turn up in crazy and unexpected numbers.
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 Koit Toome and Laura as they rehearse Verona next for Estonia. 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!
