United Kingdom’s first rehearsal
And the last contestants to be in the stage for their first rehearsal at the Globe Arena during the morning time is the entry for the United Kingdom. Joe & Jake were very relaxed and proud as they say to represent their country in the Eurovision song contest as this is an opportunity of a lifetime.
The stage starts out totally dark while Joe and Jake start up. Dressed casually in jeans and T-Shirt and a black jacket, Joe starts his vocal and in the background there are blue and pink spotlights. Jake on the other hand with his guitar, is not quite as good a vocalist, but when he sings his solo part, you can see that they are backed by two elevated drummers, whose platforms are also emitting pink and blue lights.
The back wall and floor are full of smiling British faces, reflecting the You’re Not Alone lyric. The duo basically just stand mid-stage and perform the song. interacting with each other now and again. There are also pyros used at the end of the song, and in this first set of rehearsals the pyros got a little bit close to Joe & Jake for comfort.
