Portugal’s second rehearsal
Portugal is coming after Norway and it comes with its own kind of quirkiness. Leonor’s opening notes are a bit off-key which is not the best possible start to her rehearsal. However, the performance is quite sleek overall. Leonor is doing a fine job even though I feel that she may be trying a bit too much today compared to Portugal’s first rehearsal. Indeed there is nothing wrong with Portugal but I feel that it simply lacks oomph in a contest where standing out one way or another and being instantly memorable are paramount factors for success.
