Hannah Slovenia 1st rehearsal

Hannah is 2nd artist in a row who uses the satellite stage. It puzzles me why. She starts on the main stage with 3 Maestro dancers jumping around her. It is a typical Eurovision choreography. A lot of flashing lights, blue colours. Hannah is in leather and looks good. Sings good too. In mid of the song she is moving to the satellite stage with dancers and they do some acrobatics there. She is then returning to the main stage. A disaster recipe really. The walking is always-always mess on the screen. Just stay somewhere on one of stages ppl.

Birgit Estonia 1st rehearsal

1st verse was in black and white and concentrates on the face of the singer from different sides. In the chorus we see that Birgit has a big wide dress, is it to hide she is already visually pregnant? She starts still on a small satellite stage and then does some moves to the big stage which seem pretty useless. The backing vocalists almost can't be seen, they are on big stage from beginning and it's 3 men in suits. It doesn't leave any lasting impression, she sings well, looks nice, but that's completely it.
