The First Semi-Final got the attention of 323,000 viewers at the peak of the show on ORF 1. Let’s remember that Austria did not compete in this Semi-Final and it is yet to be seen if Teya & Salena attract more viewers during the second semi-final. Notwithstanding the positive news, the figures represent a decline of 152,000 viewers compared to last year’s figures.

The Rehearsal

Unfortunately this year, accredited journalists don’t get the chance to watch the first and second rehearsals, so we only get the information and content that the organizers officially release to the public.

Teya and Salena look and sound great on their second rehearsal. It’s got a message, it’s got a thumping bassline, it’s got huge vocals, it’s got an insanely polished dance routine that everybody needs to learn immediately, and it’s got the line “Oh mio padre, there’s a ghost in my body” sung like it’s the Vienna Boys’ ChoirThis is such a fun performance.
