It’s all eyes on the hot favourite Italy as they have their first rehearsal. It’s good! Obviously some camera angles to sort (though these are already better by the second run through). The backdrop has an almost paisley design to begin with, which transforms into coloured ball motifs, praying hands, and the gorilla, peeking from behind a tree, spinning around Francesco on the floor LED.
The evolution of man is depicted in rainbow colours. There are four backing singers in a line. There are some shots of the audience where some of the ‘alés’ will be.
Even in a rehearsal Francesco has bags of energy. A good, solid first go for Italy. I’m very relieved, as I’m quite heavily emotionally invested in this winning. #pizzafortwoweeks
