Today is the fourth day of rehearsals, the day when the countries participating in the First Semi Final will take over the stage for their second rehearsal at M&S Bank Arena, in Liverpool!
Next up on stage for their second rehearsal is Switzerland and Remo Forrer with the song “Watergun“.
Who is Remo Forrer?
Remo, after a childhood of playing traditional folk music on the accordion in his little Swiss village of Hemberg, Remo moved onto the piano.
Given time he might have found fame with his accordion skills but it was his singing that landed him victory at The Voice of Switzerland 2020. He also triumphed in the German version of the music game show I Can See Your Voice.
No changes from Sunday’s first rehearsal that we could see, and still sounding great in the arena. “Watergun“ is a heartfelt ballad about the tragedy of war, and a universal call for peace.
It’s clear that Remo feels a real connection to these lyrics, and his vocal is beautiful. Staging-wise, he has four contemporary dancers (one is Ellinea Siampalis, dancer at several numbers in Melodifestivalen, who has Greek roots) and also dances himself, which we weren’t expecting.
