Portugal - First rehearsal

Another anticipated contestant is Conan Osiris. The Portuguese singer wears a green kimono-like outfit. The dancer that accompanies him wears just green pants and gloves. The video art is in firey red, with a big red rose and flames. The bright green with the red goes well and reminisce of the Portuguese flag. Very good live vocally as well. Conan is on point, but I'm not sure this will be engaging enough for the average viewer.

Iceland - First rehearsal

Iceland's turn. The Hatari members are on stage for their first rehearsal. "Hatrið mun sigra" gets an intense performance, as it should. The stage is lit with red and flickering white lights. With the group on stage are 3 dancers, one starts off in a round shaped cage. The third band member is on the cage. Some fire pyro is being used, as expected. Camera work is good, transfers the angry mood on stage. Matthías sounds very good, he sells the song. This will definitely stand out in the first semi and will slide to the finals.
