First rehearsal recap
Second rehearsal changes
Italy’s performance is quite similar to the first rehearsal and the fairy-tale theme is very much present, especially in the latter part of the song with the huge Cinderella-like castle in the LED backdrop.
The camera angles work well and the are varied with several close ups but also bird-eye views of the stage.
Both are effortlessly able to transmit emotions and their vocal performance is very solid.
