Il Volo – second dress rehearsal / jury rehearsal on May 22, 2015

Il Volo rehearsals EurovisionVienna, May 22, 2015

by Bradamante

Yesterday night at the Wiener Stadthalle at 21:00 took place the jury dress rehearsal for the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest.

This dress rehearsal was very important, because the performances were going to be evaluated by the juries of every country participating to the contest. Each jury, composed by 5 members from the music world, was watching the show via streaming and giving marks. The jury of the same nationality of the act that was going to be evaluated could not vote. So the Italian jury could not vote for Italy. The jury’s vote makes the 50% of the outcome, while the other 50% is made by the European audience’s televote.

We have not seen so far videos of the Il Volo performance. We have to rely only on the reports of those who were attending the jury dress rehearsal show in the Wiener Stadhalle yesterday night. Those accounts, besides articles on the Eurovision dedicated websites, are popping also as messages on the social media, via Twitter and Facebook. Continue reading
