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.

Eurovision 2022: Latvia’s Second Rehearsal!

The fifth day of rehearsals continues with the Latvian group Citi Zēni entering the stage of PalaOlimpico for their second technical rehearsal with the song “Eat Your Salad“.

Everything about Citi Zēni:

Citi Zēni are an award-winning, 6-piece band from Riga, who were formed at the beginning of 2020. The self-proclaimed ‘Princes of Rap’ and ‘Divas of 21st Century Pop’ are just as well known for their energetic performances and eccentric style as they are for their cheeky lyrics. The band released their debut album, Suņi Iziet Ielās, to much critical acclaim and have already started work on the follow-up album, planning to release a second single from it shortly after the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest has taken place.

The eco-friendly sextet is made up of Jānis on vocals, Dagnis who contributes vocals and saxophone, Reinis on keyboards, Krišjānis playing guitar, Roberts giving us bass, and Toms on drums.

The Rehearsal

Citi Zeni enter the stage with a very energetic performance. They make great use of the floor led. Their performance is really upbeat and makes everyone dance. Vocally, the band was really good and they also use the background lights for their performance and have spectacular closing move.

Below you can watch an exclusive preview clip of Citi Zeni’s rehearsal:

EBU: “The sun will remain in the same place in all 40 songs, to ensure a fair competition”!

The European Broadcasting Union gave its first statement, on the technical issues that have been created, with the stage of Eurovision 2022 .

Speaking to the Danish broadcaster, DR, the EBU referred to the issues that have arisen and are affecting the scene, for the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest.

The statement given to DR states that:

During the technical tests in Turin, the production team has experienced challenges with how long it takes to adjust the “sun” to different positions in the time between the different performances. Together with the host station RAI it was therefore decided that the sun will remain in the same position during all 40 songs, to ensure a faircompetition for all participating countries.

The creative director of the Danish participation Birgitte Næss-Schmidt, explained that the sun has two sides . One side has lights on it, while the other consists of LED screens and that the sun is currently adjusted to have the lights facing the audience.

As a result, some countries that were going to use LED screens in the sun had to make last-minute adjustments to their performance.

In addition, she added that at the last minute, the Danish delegation was asked to make changes in the appearance of The Reddi, as they can not as an organization support what has been requested.

We were told that the stage did not work, three days before our first rehearsal. Fortunately, we had chosen not to use the turntable itself in advance, because we did not think it worked optimally, so it has been fairly simple for us to adapt our performance

Birgitte Næss-Schmidt

We remind you that stand-in rehearsals  were held with great difficulty and several missions expressed their dissatisfaction with the material they received from the rehearsal of their participation. The technical issues addressed by the missions may therefore include the malfunction of the sun’s structure.

Added to all of the above there were problems in countries rehearsing on the first day of rehearsals, as of Latvia and Lithuania

Eurovision 2022: Latvia’s First Rehearsal!

The first day of rehearsals continues with the Latvian group Citi Zēni entering the stage of PalaOlimpico for their first technical rehearsal with the song “Eat Your Salad“.

Everything about Citi Zēni:

Citi Zēni are an award-winning, 6-piece band from Riga, who were formed at the beginning of 2020. The self-proclaimed ‘Princes of Rap’ and ‘Divas of 21st Century Pop’ are just as well known for their energetic performances and eccentric style as they are for their cheeky lyrics. The band released their debut album, Suņi Iziet Ielās, to much critical acclaim and have already started work on the follow-up album, planning to release a second single from it shortly after the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest has taken place.

The eco-friendly sextet is made up of Jānis on vocals, Dagnis who contributes vocals and saxophone, Reinis on keyboards, Krišjānis playing guitar, Roberts giving us bass, and Toms on drums.

The Rehearsal

Citi Zēni are on stage in their brightly coloured suits – like kids TV presenters, but make it fashion. Even the guy in yellow on drums looks stylish, and that’s a tough look to carry off. It’s also our first on-stage band of the competition (but definitely not the last) – it served Måneskin well last year, but that was a slightly different vibe.They graphic backdrop is heavily fruit-based with a lot of colours, and we are in no doubt that being green is both hot and cool!

A few sound issues for Latvia too on their second run, but that’s what first rehearsals are for. Sound aside, as a visual spectacle this performance looks amazing on a big stage.

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