LIVE: BIG 5 – THE HOST / FIRST REHEARSALS

🇮🇹 Måneskin – Zitti E Buoni

Maneskin’s performance was magnificent. They are like the owners of the stage and you feel as if you are watching their concerts. Red and black tones dominate the stage. Usually one color is used on the LED screen, but sometimes we can see the band figures that makes music. They use a platform with lights on the stage and the drummer on it. They are dressed in black sparkly suits, but Damiano only has pants. The performance is hot enough but they also use pyro. Vocals were amazing!

🇩🇪 Jendrik – I Don’t Feel Hate

Jendrik performed one of the most entertaining performances so far. There is a very colorful staging. Three backvocals and one dancer with Jendrik on stage. They dance a lot and have fun. The dancer is wearing a costume in the form of a✌️. We see hate words and their fragmentation on the LED screen. Jendrik starts talking and addresses the audience during part of the performance. His vocals were on point.

🇳🇱 Jeangu Macrooy – Birth of A New Age

The performance started with a broken wall effect in the background. Jeangu wore a dark blue and black suit. He was accompanied by 2 back vocals and 1 dancer. We saw “Yu no man broko mi” and “You can’t break me” phrases several times on the big led screen. In the second half of the song, the background was colourful. Jeangu’s vocals were good.

🇫🇷 Barbara Pravi – Voilá

We watched almost the same performance with the one in the French National Final. Camera angles and Barbara’s dress were similar to National Final. The staging is mostly dark and there is lighting behind Barbara. We saw the same bird effect on the stage that we had seen in the National Final. Barbara’s vocals were perfect and it seems like she managed to put even more feelings to her performance.

🇬🇧 James Newman – Embers

At the beginning of his performance, James Newman stood on a circle platform and there was 2 giant white trumpets on his both sides. There were 4 dancers accompanying him on the stage and they were dressed in white suits. James wore a black coat. Most of the time the background was black and there was white lighting. At the very end, we saw red colours as well. James’s vocals were good.

🇪🇸 Blas Cantó – Voy a Quedarme

At the beginning of his performance, we saw Blas standing on the stage and there was a dark blue lighting behind him. It seems like there is some differences in this version of the song. At first, there was no sound other than Blas’s voice that we could hear, because there was not any instrument. Later we could took a wide glance to the staging, which was simple but enough. There was a giant moon prop hanging from the roof of the arena. There was also shooting stars and universe in the big led screen. Blas wore a simple black suit and his vocals was very good.
