The latest artist to rehearse is Benjamin Ingrosso for Sweden. We have just watched her first run through of Dance You Off live on screen and here is our initial reaction.
The lighting prop is here from Melodifestivalen! No surprises there.
The final camera shot is as strong as at Melfest too.
There’s some really good reverb on his verse vocal and there is also some great singback backing vocals providing the echo in the verse too. In the chorus, so far it feels a little thin because at Melfest, Benjamin sang the low vocals whereas here he is singing the high vocals, along with the backing singers – so currently there is no low-tone notes in the chorus.
Benjamin is dressed in a shiny black leather jacket, dark trousers and white trainers – pretty much the exact same outfit as what he wore in Melodifestivalen though the whole outfit has been changed up slightly to add more shine/glisten on the lights.
Watch the rehearsal!
Stay tuned for our reaction to Vanja Radovanovic as he rehearses Inje next for Montenegro. If you want to know what to expect for the rest of the day, check out our rehearsal schedule here.
