For the second rehearsal, San Marino has made some changes. The performance opens with the dancers and backing vocalists dancing on front of the stage and unlike in the first rehearsal, this time they have an actual choreography.
Everyone on the stage, the three backing vocalists, the two dancers and Serhat himself, are wearing white. On the screens the colours are pink and gold throughout the performance. Mostly the screens show lyrics of the song.
