The latest artist to rehearse for the second time is Laura Rizzotto for Latvia. We have just watched their latest run through of Funny Girl live on screen and here is our initial reaction.


Laura is alone on stage and she works with the camera very well. The camera shots are on point and there are several times, the camera zooms in with the rhythm of the song.
She also flips her hair around during the song and has a sassy attitude, which fits perfectly with the message of the song. The performance makes the song even better.

Camera shots in this performance: 99


Vocals are very good. Laura delivers a vocally brilliant performance.


Laura is wearing a red glittery dress. Fits good to the red lights. The outfit also includes red lipstick.
