Firstly, remind yourselves what happened in the first rehearsal:
And now here is what we’ve noticed in today’s second rehearsal:
Gjon’s Tears is up next for Switzerland and his hairstyle has changed a bit, the rest of the styling has stayed the same however. Vocally, he is perfect, including the high note at the end. Camera shots have been tidied up and for some moments, they have become crazier and are now in sync with the flashing lights.
When the construct comes apart, we now do not see the stage handlers anymore and the illusion works much better! The Swiss team really managed to make the stage their own and executed this risky staging perfectly. For the final run, we get a little bit more dry ice than before but there is no pyro included in this performance.
