We have an glittery vase on stage, which is one of those instruments very popular in Eurovision in the mid 1990s.

Violinist on the satellite stage, dancer on stage with Joci. He's looking ever so slightly terrified during the performance, but is also smiley once it's done, so maybe he is just feeling the lyrics. Could do with softening up though

This is basically the performance we've seen before. I think the vase/instrument just gets in the way as it is used so little, it's just a distraction. Some pyro surrounding him and the girl when they do their little dance. Doves on backdrop.

Maybe I need more coffee, I'm struggling to keep an interest in this one, and it's a song I really like.


CRY NO MORE it says insistently from the LED wall.

Vocally strong (no surprise), rather well dressed (surprise), some subtle backdrop references to sick mother (holding hands etc). Some minor choreography, turn left, turn right, a mini-strut to the front.

Some more literal stuff here (sing about candles, fill the LED floor with candles - sing angel, fill LED floor with an angel), but it works.  Some of the moves seem a bit forced, but overall a very good impression.

Lovely last shot zooming into the trio, unlike the dodgy long shots we have seen at the end of some other performances.



They know they have a silly song and they are flaunting that silliness completely. Lots of colour, the song title splashed across the LED wall, lots of colour.

And the most literal interpretation of a glitter cannon you will ever see.

Alex rides his cannon in a manner that garnered applause from the press boys.

Ouch, final run through and Alex thrust his cannon too forcefully rendering it un-mountable. He ended flat on his back, visibly shaken by the large prop.
