Firstly, remind yourselves what happened in the first rehearsal:
And now here is what we’ve noticed in today’s second rehearsal:
Ana is back on stage, sporting the same white pant suit as in the first rehearsal. The graphics changed a bit in the beginning, with a black hole on the LED behind her. This later explodes into golden glitter and the sun and then turns into a half realistic, half golden earth. Ana wears high heels again, but is walking more confidently this time.
For the choir part, she is again walking over the catwalk towards the B-stage and the transparent LED screen drops down. Here they changed the graphics appearing and it’s less prominent, although we still get to see landscapes and nature sceneries. For the big note, Ana stands on the B-stage and we get the same golden explosion as in the first rehearsal. In the end, she made the choice to turn away from the camera, turn around and just sing “hey child” instead of “hey child why ya hiding from the light”.
