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.
