Firstly, remind yourselves what happened in the first rehearsal:
And now here is what we’ve noticed in today’s second rehearsal:
Everything looks less chaotic compared to the first rehearsal. While especially the singer Jesper seemed to be in hurry all the time, he has calmed down a bit for the second rehearsal. While there is still some running, especially to the satellite stage before the last chorus, everything seems to be more compact. However, all the energy from the first rehearsal is still there.
People will remember a lot from this. The song is annoyingly catchy, while also the performance has lots of quirky dance moves. Overall this makes people smile, and it could be just what we need right now.
There is nothing wrong with the performance – it’s good vocally and visually. The song is not everyone’s cup of tea, but it will have its own fans for sure. The juries should appreciate the professionalism, if not the song. It also is the perfect closer for the show and it will definitely heat up the live audience.
