First up on day two of rehearsals we have Maro from Portugal, taking to the stage for the first time to rehearse her entry ‘Saudade Saudade’
Maro is making use of the satellite stage, and has brought us some atmospheric smoke to complement the sultry vocals, rhythmic clapping and the intimate circle formation that was so effective previously. The transition from Festival da Cancao to Eurovision looks very sharp and designed to enhance its visual effectiveness as does the use of aqua and purple colours.
Here is the TikTok snippet of the first rehearsal:
See what Maro said when speaking with the Italian Broadcaster RAI following their rehearsal below:
