The main question is, am I Anna Ford or Reggie Bosenquet? – Yeah, you lot have no chance of knowing who they are.
From what we can gather – here is some of the edited highlights from Day 1.
The only thing that Alessandra has seemingly changed from the MGP is her dress – she’s added some gold poping on her breasts – who am I to argue. Lots of Kate Ryan’s glowsticks on show which is a great thing.
The Busker’s lead singer seemingly now wears two jumpers, because one just isn’t enough. He’s also wearing one of those stupid party hats and they have cardboard cu outs of previous Maltese entries, some of which are more lifelike than their real life counterparts! They just seem to be trying too hard to sell this.
They were so happy Malta are before them, probably because it puts their song in a good light. Luke has massive props, an Orchid I think – and lots of strutting and weirdness abounds – also, smoke comes out of the backing singers backpacks.
The snippet suddenly makes this song make sense. I always thought the video was overblown for this but the staging looks like a “proper band” at a proper gig. All gold lighting against the black seems to have given this song a chance now in my eyes.
She’s killed Elmo, skinned it and is wearing him. All in Red and the backing dancers tops do not leave much to the imagination. There is no sofa on stage which is a shame but the dark mood lighting makes up for it. Heavy 1980’s shoulder action as well. This seems to have gained energy from the FdC. More work to do she says…. that’s ominous!
As you know they binned their creative consultant because of reasons and none of them were because he’s come up with a shitshow on stage. Connor is wearing a gold spangly jumpsuit that doesn’t flatter him and makes him look like an ice skater – where’s his triple Salchow? He just looks awkward walking down the stairs on the set and the fireworks seem a very late addition to distract you.
Just batshit – that is all. Great use of all the screens though.
I didn’t realise that a 30 second Ticky-Tock can actually make you and your song seem even more boring but that’s a skill that Switzerland have managed.
For me this is the best look of the day today. It seems to have everything – slick production values, someone from The Borrowers on stage playing the flute, lots of stags heads and some mental dancing – what more could you want?
Not uploaded at time of writing – I understand she has bought the smaller version of her Sandwich press with her – which is nice. All smoky on the background we are told.
That’s it for today – to be honest, not much else we can give considering the lack of content being put out but I hope I’ve made you smile a little.
