10:00 – 10:20 Italy
Same as usual. Il Volo sang their song perfectly in each run. Doesn’t stand out really.
10:25 – 11:45 Austria
The MakeMakes had flawless runs. No issues and they performed professionally. The drummer has a lot of charisma.
10:50 – 11:10 Spain
Minus a slight technical problem in the beginning, Edurne sang with a lot of energy and dedication to her performance. Costume change went flawlessly.
11:15 – 11:35 Germany
Ann Sophie delivered three consistent performances. Slight sound problem in beginning of second run.
11:40 – 12:00 United Kingdom
Four perfect runs with a lot of enthusiasm.
12:05 – 12:25 France
Very eerie background. Depressing tone, but highly powerful. Lisa was excellent and thanked everyone, including technical team, for everything.
12:30 – 12:50 Australia
Lively performance with streetlight prop and dancing. Good first two runs, but major technical problems with third run, leading to multiple restarting of the song.
