Phil’s Review of the day – Day..eerm..Three?

It lI feel I should start this round up with a “BONG!” sound effect but I don’t know how to do that, so thankfully for you, you get my prose and some tickey tock videos – you lucky punters.

Estonia

It seems that Ailka has had wardrobe issues which wont have helped her cause but it seems to have been simply staged as most Estonian songs are.  The lights on the back of the stage are effective.

No pretending, Alika and her haunted piano hit all the right notes 🎹🇪🇪 #Eurovision2023 #Eurovision @Alika Milova

Iceland

Thirty seconds is still way, way too much of this song for my liking. My dad heard her sound check and said ” Iceland, you’d better stay there” – From the mouth of people that don’t watch the contest! – Simplistic staging suits this song but the song might not suit Europe.  She’s a gifted athlete though, handsprings are difficult.

Diljá’s holds all the POWER of this stage 🇮🇸 #Eurovision2023 #Eurovision @Diljá Pétursdóttir

Victor has himself on the LED screens.. Why? – We can all see what you look like! – There is also dry ice and he seems to be wearing a venture scout outfit with khaki shorts and top….  Is he going for his performance badge?

Poland

A Million people have seen this video – I wonder how many of them are hoping it fails.  She appears to have resurected the TVAM sunrise log on part of her backing screens which do all sorts of things afterwards, so that’s good.  There are also fireworks seemingly a costume change.  It’s got all the ingredients.

Dance break? ✅ Dress reveal? ✅ Tropical vibes? ✅ Blanka slayed 💅 #Eurovision2023 #Eurovision @blikeblanka

They make this look ridiculously easy.  Proper band singing a proper song.  this is how to perform on thg stage – You don’t need your curling tongs or massive props, you need talent and a bit of charm.  More please Bojan and chums.

Joker Out truly did seize the day! 😉 🇸🇮 #Eurovision2023 #Eurovision @Joker Out Official

Georgia

Seemingly Iru is getting married shortly after her performance because she is bedecked in her wedding dress with a train that any blushing bride would die for.  Unfortunately she appears to be singing in a Force 10 tornado with the wind machines up to the max.  Looks dramatic, though I worry for her hair!

@eurovision

This thing is known…Iru’s first rehearsal was breathtaking 🫢 🇬🇪 #Eurovision2023 #Eurovision @IruKhechanovi

San Marino

Lips on the background, because of course.  It’s all very red and they too have seemingly borrowed the TVAM Sun and painted it red.  There seems to be slightly less of the actual rehearsal than we are used to – maybe there is some sort of issue or McGuffin they don’t want us to see?

@eurovision

Full of rizz, you can smell their stage presence a mile off! 🇸🇲 #Eurovision2023 #Eurovision @Piqued Jacks

Austria

Been looking forward to this one because it’s fucking brilliant.  Do the girls live up to my hype? you bet they do.  Same costumes as the video – more red with a shit ton of dancing girls and a pic of Edgar at the end saying ” Who the hell is Edgar” – I can’t wait to see this on Wednesday night from the press centre.

LET’S GO! Time for some POE POE POE 🇦🇹 #Eurovision2023 #Eurovision @whothehellareteyaandsalena

Albania

The Albanian Partridge family taking to the stage.  I’m tempted to say its a typical Albanian staging – all red and fire and overblown,  It’s all very dramatic.

@eurovision

Albina and her fam bring fire, flames, and feels! 🔥🔥🔥🇦🇱 #Eurovision2023 #Eurovision @Albina Kelmendi

Lithuania

Monica seems to have had some moths in her wardrobe as it’s eaten half of her stage costume and she is just wearing ribbons.  No? – that’s a fashion choice? – Ah well – I’ll stick to t-shirts thanks.  Backing singers contrasted in black gym Leotards, not sure they are the most flattering things in the world.  More red on stage, at least her orange won’t clash – oh wait!  Some A Song for Europe choreography going on I see.

Heartfelt harmonies from Lithuania’s Monika 🧡 🇱🇹 #Eurovision2023 #Eurovision @Monika Linkyte

I’m still not sure why Voyager’s lead singer has a Hitler moustache, I suspect that is one of the questions that we are NOT going to be asking him. Also, Sam Ryder seems to be playing the drums for them – so that’s nice..  Red again on stage and an actual real life car as a prop!! – Someone has got the cheque book out to hire that one!  No scratches with your boots, boys, or the excess will not cover the claim!

@eurovision

Guarentee you’ve never seen anything like this before 🤯 🇦🇺 🚗#Eurovision2023 #Eurovision @Voyager
