Israel First Rehearsal

So, Israel...the very-much-talked-about favourite and our first opportunity to see how it will appear on-stage. The intro, as expected, has Netta behind her mixing desk straddled by two flashing toy cabinets filled with nodding Chinese toy cats. Don't get the feeling she is on full battery for this first outing but the dancers were there (choreography seemed a little make it up as you go along rather than slick) and also a "stupid boy" in his t shirt, vaguely followed her around on stage as the song neared its end. It's a wait and see for now, but easily the biggest reaction in the Press Centre so far today.
