Firstly, remind yourselves what happened in the first rehearsal:
And now here is what we’ve noticed in today’s second rehearsal:
Tusse kept his outfit the same, wearing a sleeveless red suit and black/silver embellishments on his sleeves. The whole performance is tidier and especially brighter! The backdrop is more golden and the side lights got brighter and are not as flickering as before. He also got a red catwalk on the LED floor at one point and the water effects are more flickering. Sweden still needs to do some camera work especially towards the end, as the key change moment has not been captured perfectly.
The virtual “million voices” are still there but not as prominent and his 4 dancers still appear as well. Towards the end, Tusse kicks away the water effect and a backdrop with stars takes its place instead. Vocally Tusse is still not perfect, however, the vocals are great and as soon as the live shows start, we’re sure he will deliver!
