Albania 1st Rehearsal

Just adding a few thoughts on Albania.

My impression is that it might be a tad too depressing. Lindita looks tormented and the imagery from the video also gives a slightly depressing effect.

It is nice, that she is joined by her backing singers, but I would like the act to convey a little more hope and positivity. There's still time to fix things though. A little bit of smiling might help for starters.

Catching up a bit....


Well it was always going to be a little early for Tamara on stage, but I was pleasantly surprised with how well this sounded and looked on the screens. No real costume hints yet at all....but good start for her


Technical issues at the moment so Lindita had a small lung work out and then vanished from our screens
They seem to be starting again now.....

Albania first rehearsal

So far we're going well on schedule and we've already moved to Albania. Vocally again more than decent. Lindita chose not to hide her backings and isn't wearing her dress either. The backdrop reminds of the video she made, now in a greenish colour and with clocks with roman numerals around her and on the floor.
While there is nothing to say against her or the song, still it just doesn't make the same impression as Georgia.

The second time she experiments with some different vocal lines just before the long note. We know now that Lindita can also hit really high notes if she wants but I hope she keeps them out as it does not fit the song. Unfortunately it's been this way as well in the 3rd - and even 4th - runthrough. It's strange how she does a high note, than an awkward silence and then the long and impressive note that she has nailed each and every time so far. I hope it's still some way to save her voice.
