Bulgaria's Second Rehearsal Clip

Not Bulgaria coming with the best rehearsal clip. The black sun for once is doing what it is supposed to do. Although there is one sloppy shot in the beginning, but other than that, it looks good?
As outdated the song is as much modern this performance will be. I’m surprised. They can definitely qualify.

:ua: Love the shadows with the ethnic patterns, really effective. Definitely not a fan of the song but it does what it has to do.
:bg: I'm SHOOK this is great staging, Bulgaria coming with the best staging so far is really, really funny. Song is horrible though x

EDIT
oh I didn't react to :ch: but that song is too tedious and the staging too much on the nose (which is saying: great staging but too slick and therefore doesn't fit the song)

Croatia - 1st try, it seems she's having sound issues in the beginning, she's touching her in-ears. Thankfully, she kept going.

(still having "panic" attacks after last year's disaster with in-ears :lol:)

2nd try - better than the 1st one. Oh, crap, it doesn't work again.

Netherlands's Second Rehearsal Clip

The lighting is too bright for my liking. I am expecting it to be a little darker to match the atmosphere of the song. The shots need to be tighter. There's a part where the transition is clunky. And haven't they learn not to have too many pan out shots for a soloist. She got swallowed by the stage.

:nl: That clip gives us absolutely nothing haha, I like the lights though but I think this is more of a "see the whole thing for the vibe" kind of performance
Didn't disappoint me, didn't make me euphoric

though: go S10!!!!!!!

Netherlands clip: the black sun doesn't bother that much because the staging in general is quite dark and there is no LED backdrop it seems. It could be classy, but I don't know, it's a bit bland as well. Expected some nicer effects for the chorus, so not that impressed here.

Does absolutely nothing to me. She looks like she has been forced to stand there. A total lack of energy. But I guess it fits the song?!
Verdict: Qualifier. Possible jury winner although I am not as sure about that anymore. Somewhere between 1st-6th.

I was hoping that they would use red lasers in her staging, but it works well too.
Thankfully, there's no major overexposure during the chorus xbow

To be honest, they could have done what they did in the TV performance with the laser. I am still in awe with that performance. It's so simple yet effective.

Moldova's Second Rehearsal Clip

Another one that got screwed by the black sun. Clearly there are much more colourful motifs in the LED backdrop. Love the floor LED too. Other than that, it feels kinda underwhelming.
