This afternoon I took Conchita’s Facebook tip about her afternoon performance and hightailed it over to the stage in Eurovision Village to catch her show. With a stage sound system, she sounded even better than last night at the disco, and I think she’s going to do very well this week. Here are a couple photos:
Then I attended tonight’s first big stage show of Eurovision week, the jury “dress rehearsal” before tomorrow night’s tv broadcast. My mind wasn’t completely changed about any of the entries, though I was not as impressed as I thought I would be by Armenia or Azerbaijan. I think the winner tomorrow night will be Sweden, Ukraine, or Hungary (though we won’t find out till the end of the week). And if any of the hopeless entries has the power to surprise and qualify, it could be Portugal, that is upbeat and fun enough to get the crowd going.
Here is a flickr set of the fantastic theatre and great show tonight.
