Eurovision 2022: Jury Show of the First Semi-Final!

One day before the actual shows the so-called Jury Show happens which isn’t visible to the usual audience (only to those who received press accreditation and to the experts). The Jury Show of the First Semi-Final took place today. Professional jurors have already ranked all 17 acts of today’s show.

Albania

Very sensual and sexual performance with a good camerawork. Ronela is very charismatic and it looked like a worthy opener. The choreography was fierce. Overall, it was a great performance. Let’s see whether juries liked it or not.

Latvia

Amazing and very energetic performance from Citi Zeni. The camerawork is on point and vocally it was perfect. Is it a song that would be appreciated by juries? No clue.

Lithuania

Elegant, minimalistic but impactful performance from Monika Liu. Stunned by this.

Switzerland

Visually – gorgeous, vocally – I wouldn’t really say.

Slovenia

It was fun, although the soloist got lost in the light! Vocally excellent, nothing else to add.

Ukraine

Timofiy improved a LOT. Energetic, impactful and mesmerising performance from Kalush Orchestra. One of the bests, for sure.

A break before Bulgaria

Bulgaria

This staging is exactly what a rock song needs. One of the best vocals.

Netherlands

Very minimalistic and simple staging. S10 was nervous, hopefully she’ll be better for the actual show.

Moldova

It’s indeed fun. Personally enjoyed this one a lot. The audience did it too.

Portugal

Very emotional and atmospheric. The staging is perfection.

Croatia

Such a cute performance from Mia! Amazing camerawork and excellent vocals. Croatian was added to the song (she sung the last chorus in Croatian completely).

Denmark

Great performance, nothing else to say.

There’s a break after Denmark. We see some from Sunday’s Turquoise Carpet.

Austria

Vocally not really great, but it has a very effective staging!

Iceland

Atmospheric performance and a very easy song to listen to. Impressive!

Greece

Massive winner vibes there…

Norway

Such an astounding performance from the wolves from Norway! Enjoyed it a lot.

Armenia

Flawless vocals and fascinating staging.

We see the recap of all 17 songs once all artists finished performing.

Dardust is on the stage playing a drum. Sophie and the giants are on the stage. Tons of pyro as we see Daniel Benassi at the back of the stage at a DJ booth.

A tribute to Raffaella Carra. Laura talks about her and then Fiesta is played!

Afterwards the second recap is on!

Diodato performs his ESC 2020 song – Fai Rumore. In the dark, he sits and plays at his piano and sings. A choir softly sings along in the chorus. Diodato starts off behind the stage and is on the front side with lots of people dancing around him on stage in smoke. Perfection.

Alessandro chats with the JESC 2021 winner – with Maléna. We see a small clip of her JESC victory and of her song. Promo clip for Yerevan is shown as well right after the clip.

Mika has a conversation with Alvan & Ahez and Mahmood&Blanco. 

France

In the beginning it was very shaky, but then everything went very well. Energetic, impressive and outstanding performance from France! WOW!

Italy

Vocally they’ve improved a lot since the second rehearsal. They don’t engage with camera which makes it at some point better. Brilliant performance!

The announcement of the qualifiers right after Italy’s performance!

The qualifiers of the Jury Show were:

  • Latvia
  • Portugal
  • Lithuania
  • Norway
  • Denmark
  • Greece
  • Armenia
  • Switzerland
  • Austria
  • Netherlands

P.S these are not the real results.

The actual show will be broadcasted tomorrow.

Eurovision 2022: Albania’s Second Rehearsal!

Today,  the second rehearsals for the 66th Eurovision Song Contest are going to be held in Turin officially starting today. First to take the stage for their second rehearsal is Albania, with Ronela Hajati and the song “Sekret“.

Who is Ronela Hajati?

Ronela Hajati was born in September 2, 1989 in Tirana, Albania. She was interested in music from a very young age, Ronela studied ballet and piano and took part in a variety of song and dance contests before making a career in the music industry. Ronela is known for her diversity in music, style and performance. She took part in a lot of Albanian song and dance contests, like Top Fest and Kënga Magjike, and this year she managed to win the 60th Festivali I Këngës, a beloved annual show in Albania, and has more recently been used to select the country’s Eurovision entries. Hajati triumphed over 19 other acts, with some of the brightest names in music amongst them.

The rehearsal

Ronela wears different clothes, this time in white. The choreography remains the same and the performance sgtarts with close ups to Ronela and her dancers, while in the first chorus the female dancer enters the stage as well. There is some smoke coming out in various parts of her performance. Ronela also had a small problem with her microphone and ear piece. As for her three runs, we would say that her second run was the best.

Below you can see an exclusive preview clip of Ronela’s performance:

Albania’s next performance in the Eurovision stage will be on May 10 where she will be the first to perform on the first semi-final.

Albania: Changes in Ronela’s choreography?

It seems that it is difficult to have Eurovision without drama! The photos from yesterday’s rehearsal of Albania in the official account of the Eurovision Contest were deleted and replaced by others.

Fans speculate that the reason is a photo that was used as a cover and was considered provocative:

Erdi Tejeci, a member of the Albanian delegation, published the following:

Is something wrong here? The first pictures of Ronela Hajati were deleted from the official page of Eurovision and now they have been republished with cut pictures while she is dancing with Klaudia Pepa and their hands are going down! You are trying to do something that has never happened before in your country and EBU considers it too much for a family show, when we had two women kissing on stage at Eurovision 2013, writing history. I will take this personally!

There are also rumors that EBU asked the Albanian delegation to change the choreography, because it was considered too provocative. (This post has been deleted from Twitter).

Ronela Hajati herself posted this reaction on her Twitter account a little earlier:

The second rehearsal of Albania will take place on Wednesday 4/5 so we will have a better picture of what we will see from Ronela on the stage of the competition and we will see if there are any changes in the choreography.

Eurovision 2022: Albania’s First Rehearsal!

The time for all Eurofans has come! Today,  the rehearsals for the 66th Eurovision Song Contest are going to be held in Turin officially. First to take the stage of this years Eurovision Song Contest is Albania, with Ronela Hajati and the song “Sekret“.

Who is Ronela Hajati?

Ronela Hajati was born in September 2, 1989 in Tirana, Albania. She was interested in music from a very young age, Ronela studied ballet and piano and took part in a variety of song and dance contests before making a career in the music industry. Ronela is known for her diversity in music, style and performance.

Hajati triumphed over 19 other acts, with some of the brightest names in music amongst them.

The rehearsal

Unfortunately, for the first rehearsals, accredited journalists do not have the opportunity to cover them. The only things that become known are what the event gives to the public.

This performance has incredible drama and impact, and she looks amazing in a sparkly bikini with black boots and pink hair. Four male backing dancers and one very gymnastic female are providing backing support – this is ticking lots of our Eurovision boxes.

This is going to be a great opener to the first Semi-Final next Tuesday – despite some sound issues in the first run-through, her vocal sounds great. On her second run she is more comfortable on stage, with great moves and some pyros maybe will be added on her last run. Also, the waterfall at the front of the stage has been turned on for her last performance for today!

Below you can watch a small clip from Albania’s first rehearsal from Tik Tok:
