Germany | The 'Sisters' shone like city lights for their first rehearsal
Welcome back to Eurovoxx's coverage of the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 rehearsals! We're already at day six which means today we will see the second rehearsals of seventeen countries, plus the big five and Israel, which drew second half of the second semi final - including the two current favourites to win! Join us all day on our YouTube channel, website & other social media for the latest updates and video content.
It was a case of will he? or Wont he? when Mahmood won SanRemo 2019. The winner does not necessarily go forward, and represent their nation. It is a great thing for us that the talented singer accepted this challenge. He will be representing Italy this year with the song, "Soldi". Since then, his single has gone multi platinum, he has had tens of millions of streams on Spotify, and YouTube. He recently won the OGAE international poll, and many are tipping this for the win. It has so many supporters that it will be shock if it is not in the top 10.
Carlotta and Laurita, aka Sisters, have a more simplistic and stripped back performance. They have kept their staging similar to what it was in the national final (but without the spinning platform this time!) We can see that the main focus is on the two singers as they pour their emotions into what they are singing. The rehearsal starts with them at either end of the stage, before coming together at the front of the stage, where they remain for the rest of the performance.
The colours and visuals of their staging change from a blue and white theme to images of themselves in black and white being projected on the screen behind him. They are both dressed in black and, vocally, they sounded great and they have a lot of power and emotion in their voices when they sing. They sound very good and their voices blend well together.
