After Mans, it is the absolute opposite of performance for Sweden. Just the smart guy, who could live next door, with sneakers, a white shirt and a jacket. Just some yellow lights in the back and a cool song. Thats it. No dancers, no screen, no fire, nothing at all.
Today was the second rehearsal of the host country Sweden. Frans the young guy with the really cool song. Everyone is ecxited to see how they will do and curious if Sweden will maybe fight again for a victory and close the gap to the record holder Ireland.
It is a good performance for a host country. Reaction was a respectful applaus, not more, not less.

1. Lidia was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia
2. She was a member of the duo Glam Girls and had attempted to represent Moldova in 2013, 2014, 2015 as a member of that band.
3. After Romania being out of Eurovision, the TV from Moldova proposes to Ovidiu to make a duo with Lidia Isac and represent Moldova. Ovidiu declined.

UK worked since the last rehearsal, lights are stronger, more presence of the two guys. They work well with the cameras and interact with each other. That looks nice and is good entertainment. But still the fear that is will be lost with all the other overloaded stagings, shows, video clips etc.
Anyhow a lot of respect to UK who worked well this year and made the most out of the song and the staging.
