The next artist to rehearse today is Daneliya Tuleshova from Kazakhstan. We have just watched the latest run through of 脫zi艅e Sen Now, let’s compare the differences between the first and second rehearsals!

First rehearsal recap

Second rehearsal changes

First thing to notice here is that almost the entirety of the press centre has emptied in order to go into the arena to watch this rehearsal live, Daneliya has definitely won over the journalists here in Minsk.

Kazakhstan were already perfectly polished on Wednesday with what is widely agreed as the best camerawork from any delegation here. The use of the letterbox framing, the sepia filters is all perfectly timed.

There鈥檚 the odd camera in shot which needs a final tidy up but this is undoubtedly targeting the podium at least for our debutants. A nice touch of blue and gold lighting throughout the performance, adding that Kazakh identity to the show.

In addition, we鈥檝e made a late realisation that the use of the eagle on the LED backdrop is the eagle from the Kazakh flag. Likewise the Kazakh sun is what is created when the two hands come together in a powerful image towards the end of the piece!

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!
