I liked the first one better, this is too dark and not outstanding enough and she‘s lacking power on stage.

Somehow I believe all AQs were holding it back on purpose today. Germany and Spain so static, UK too soft and shaky voices, Angelina sluggish on stage. Only France and Sweden delivered but I really can’t stand the Swedish performance since I have eye problems and they really hurt when I try watching it.

I liked the 1st outfit but it was too similar to the graphics and we already have plenty fake nude outfits.

The 2nd one looks better for the performance imo

sometimes you see problems everywhere because you have prejudice in your head, today was a good lesson for some presumptuous Swedish producer!

guess who said it

I think we can be proud of what Angelina's staff has done. The staging is stunning and elegant. I didn't have any doubt that her maneger and discographic label would have done everything to elevate the song but now we have the proof. I think they have used all the main optionals the stage offers: the cubes at the beginning , the golden waterfall towards the end for almost 15 sec and the fireworks at the end when she says Total.
I don't see Angelina, with this qualitative staging, out of top 5 but as we know in ESC everything could happen.
Italy will have an optimal drawing in the final ( why should the producers damage the chances of Italy by giving bad RO?)
Only 6 days left. We'll see.

In my opinion Angelina will finish for sure top 3 with the juries, but I don't think she will be that high with televoters. The song is vibrant, she's going to deliver as always, but cumbia Is not for everyone and she struggled with the televoters even in Sanremo. I think She will reach a great position, even top 3, but I don't see her winning the whole thing (even if I hope so, for obvious reasons). My main favourites still remain Switzerland and Ukraine when we are approaching semi 1.

Good point of view.
But Angelina came 2nd with the televote in Sanremo overshadowing stars like Annalisa Mahmoud Ghali and Irama.
Even Mahmood 2019 with Soldi wasn't for everyone but he got an honorable 3rd place with the televote.
Who knows.

I’m really confused with all those rehearsal videos. Not in a good way! Gonna wait for tomorrow before I judge it.

I don't bother watching the rehearsal videos if I can help it. I always like to be surprised!

I really like the song. The beat is addictive. I showed my Italian in-laws last night and my mother-in-law was getting into it. I also found out that Angelina is the daughter of Giuseppe Mango, from Basilicata - that's the region my father-in-law is from! I was excited about that. My FIL has heard of him but didn't recognise him (he's been in Australia since 1984). Was sad hearing how young Mango died. I was surprised to discover Mango had an album called Australia from 1985 and the title track, singing about Australia. We listened to it and it was a beautiful song. I wondered whether he had ever travelled there, why was he singing about my country?

Angelina's dad would have been so proud of her representing Italy at Eurovision. xheart

In line with the last two messages I make some considerations.

In the past, I read Pino Mango's story very quickly and what struck me was precisely the way he died and one of the many subsequent consequences moved me. Pino Mango died as a true artist on the stage. A few hours later his brother followed him and passed away together with him due to the immense pain. It was a very close family. Angelina was catapulted from heaven to hell in an instant.

The staging doesn't seem that disappointing to me. These are the typical fears passed on by contagion from some overly sensitive or bad faith Eurofans. I speak in general without specific references to people. I think that, among the "divas" (precisely those from Georgia, Malta, Greece and let's also throw in Austria although the sound is less Mediterranean) Angelina is the one who manages to channel style, energy, pathos and excellent singing. On the singing side Greece can hold its own with Marina, on the show side (although it is a fusion between Chanel and Noa Kirel) there is Georgia with Nutsa. I seem to have understood that the dance troupe is just a filler but we will remain focused on Angelina. Perhaps a more "static" form of the "SloMo" concept where the frenzy of the choreography is filled with impressive plastic poses, expressive strength and voice. Two sides of the same coin. I don't think there's anything to be afraid of.

An addition, many bring Angelina closer to Loreen... I don't agree. Loreen is like Mengoni, a thoroughbred horse always destined to be one step ahead of the others. Their presence implies a good result regardless. Angelina on the other hand, due to her fragilities, her story, I see her as a Salvador Sobral. Like him, she is destined to be a solid but outsider performer. Like good wine it will mature as the hours pass and will surprise the final dish. It's possible that I was mistaken but these are my impressions.
