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

Il Volo – first dress rehearsal on May 22, 2015

Dress rehearsal May 22, 2015 - EurovisionVienna, May 22, 2015. Today at the Wiener Stadthalle at 14:00 took place the dress rehearsal to the Final of the Eurovision Song Contest.

The rehearsal followed the running order published yesterday. Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca wore elegant Armani suits and white shirts, a clean style contrasting with all the movement of the scenery.

The performance was great, although we can think that they saved some details for this evening where they will perform in front of the jury. On the videos we can hear the reactions of the audience.

Il Volo – prima prova generale del 22 Maggio 2015

Vienna, 22 Maggio 2015. Oggi alla Wiener Stadthalle alle ore 14:00 si è svolta la prova generale per la Finale dell’Eurovision Song Contest.

La prova ha seguito l’ordine di esibizione pubblicato ieri. Piero, Ignazio e Gianluca indossavano eleganti abiti di Armani e camicie bianche, uno stile semplice in contrasto con la scenografia in movimento.

L’esibizione è stata grandiosa, nonostante questo, pensiamo che i ragazzi abbiano tenuto da parte qualcosa per questa sera, quando si esibiranno di fronte alla giuria. Nei video possiamo sentire la reazione del pubblico.
