If the :al: snippet is messy, the :nl: one is as flat as it gets - :be: 2018 vibes.

I seriously disliked S10's vocals there. I hope she's just saving her voice. I managed to get over my "Dutch Dutch" bias as a Belgian to moderately like the official video, but here it sounds off. Also gives me Belgium 2018 vibes.
Yeah I had the same feeling, that was a bit shaky. But I'm optimistic, she proved that she can do it before.

my "Dutch Dutch" bias as a Belgian

Seriously curious what that bias is, what's the general opinion of the Flemish on "Dutch Dutch"? And how does that sound in De Diepte?
The general opinion of the Dutch on Flemish is probably "cute"

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.
Omg, that looks boring and dull. I am actually shook right now

it's hard to describe. I sort of combination of nasal and rough is the best I can think of right now. And loud and squeaky.

Yea as expected: A televoting magnet. Wouldn`t be surprised by a Top 3 finish with the public. They will need to up the energy level more though.
Verdict: Qualifier. Due to a really strong televoting result. 5-11th.

I liked Switzerland, Bulgaria, Lithuania.
Ukraine is OK. The rest gives me NQ vibes tbh

Netherlands is my #1 so far this year, but I'm not at all impressed with the reharsal. I hope she's just saving her voice

For Ukraine, the idea behind the staging seems great but unfortunately the sun ruined their background. Other than that it is a good performance.

Bulgaria is great and although I still don't see it qualifying they can be proud of their performance.

Netherlands seems boring, at least in that particular moment of the song. I don't know why they didn't do more cause having the light side of the sun could be an advantage, I don't think they could do too much with LED screen the way it is staged anyway.

Moldova could have been better but it is fun and the chorus of the new version is kinda sweeter. I'm not 100% sure if it's qualifying anymore but they seem to have fun. I really hoped they would bring the train they had talked about tho.

Since its reveal I never got the hype for NL, which is imho the epitome of blandness. Still buffled how this is top 10 in the betting odds, NQ looks more and more likely with that rehearsal snippet. It also has direct rivals with GR and PT being in the very same semi.

This is the 2nd coming of Sennek.

But I shouldn't be cocky. Austria looks like a 100% NQ now, which gives me a lot of free time next week xcheer

Nah, juries will always save this. But I can see it dissapoint in the final with a not that high televoting score, like Bulgaria last year.

Apparently, it was Milhanas. 4 backing singers it is...
Well I hope no one gets it. Otherwise it will happen the same thing that happened to Iceland last year and it’s just a shame to miss the opportunity to perform live with the audience :/
