Country: San Marino
Act: Piques Jacks
Song: “Like an Animal”
Semifinal: Second (11/05/2022)
Position in Running Order: 12/16

The song sees the bandmembers on the main stage with lots of red and pink tones. The leadsinger acts out the animals mentioned a little bit with his hands, nice touch! For the chorus the guitarists run around quite a bit.

For the verse after the chorus we see the singer lying on the ground in a red shape. For the second chorus we see mouths flying around and more blue colours are added too. For the final highnotes we first see one of the guitarists jumping off the drumkit. the lighting has changed into just white for the ending.

Country: Austria
Act: Teya & Salena
Song: “Who the hell is Edgar?”
Semifinal: Second (11/05/2022)
Position in Running Order: 13/16

The song starts with a big typewrite behind them. It disappears and the staging turns red and black with dancers on the background. For the chorus the dancers duplicate and real dancers join in as well. There are more and more dancers added tot the background.

They were vocally a bit flat in this runthrough. For the final bridge we see circles of the dancers. We see 0.003 appear on the background as well after which we see a massive ‘Ugh’ written out on the background too. For the final bit all the dancers form the shape of Edgars head.

Country: Albania
Act: Albina & Familja Kelmendi
Song: “Duje”
Semifinal: Second (11/05/2022)
Position in Running Order: 14/16

At the start we see Albina singing some notes and pointing up to the skies in an incredibly epic way. The back led is red and black with shapes that appear to be some sort of veins. Towards the first chorus we see the parents singing and the veins turn silver and gold. They all move towards each other in the center of the stage. they pull out handkerchiefs which they twirl around.

Albina stands in the middle with a star shaped shape being lit up underneath her. For the chorus this shape is also visible on the background. For the ending we see a lot of fire appear as well. This is a really impressive staging and performance that will stand out!

Country: Lithuania
Act: Monika Linkyte
Song: “Stay”
Semifinal: Second (11/05/2022)
Position in Running Order: 15/16

We see Monika standing in front of an orange and pink circle with little moons and feathers around it. The camera is really focused on her. In the first chorus the colours become just a light purple. In the first time we hear the Ciuto Tutto Monika walks to the front stage and the shape get bigger and pulsates as well.

We then see her being joined by her backing vocalists who stand around her in a w shape. Some figures appear on the LED for the final chorus and they all stand in a half circle singing the final few Ciuto Tutto’s.

Country: Australia
Act: Voyager
Song: “Promise”
Semifinal: Second (11/05/2022)
Position in Running Order: 16/16

We start off with Danny sending the car that is on stage. The colours are very red and blue. The keytar is in the passenger seat as well. In the chorus he stands up in the car. We zoom out to reveal the rest of the band in the chorus. After this first chorus he gets out of the car and he stands in front of it. The lights turn to red for the second chorus

We get a better look at the guitarists of the band as well. For the breakdown we get lots of black and silver. A windmachine is put on Danny for the bridge to the final chorus. We then get a guitarsolo where Simone has one foot on the car. We get a better look at the other vocalist in the ending as well. Very cool end of the show.
