Spain

Spain second rehearsal

Manel and his band are still wearing their hawaii-shirts of course and try to get us all in a summer mood. Vocally in the hall it seems ok, but what I noticed a lot during the first run is that we don't get to see Manel singing until well ahead during the first chorus. He and the guitarists start in the back of the stage facing the screen that is still quite dark.

Just as they turn around for the chorus we also get the colourful beach backdrop.

Spain Second Rehearsal

My issue with Spain's staging is that Manel is in the dark for the first verse, making it impossible for viewers connect with him.
The colour explosion beach party therefore almost comes as an irritating surprise afterwards.
The surfboard LED effect is entertaining, but makes it difficult to take this entry serious as a summer pop song.
