The Schlagerboys attended the France and Spain rehearsals this morning and can confirm that both are completely AMAZING!
Is this the best Big 5 year EVER? The Schlagerboys think so with these two songs, plus Italy being fab and the UK not being a total embarrassment. Germany lets the side down but you can't have everything and 4 out of 5 'aint bad.
Both France and Spain are providing an uptempo schlager lift to the contest and we hope they are spread out, but preferably in the second half. The first half / second half allocations are drawn tonight so we want these two near the end with a few ballads shoved in between.
Both France and Spain make proper use of the catwalk with Spain providing the best example of a catwalk strut we've seen this week. France also walks in time and points at people along the way. We saw Frans do his catwalk bit this afternoon too but he's still ambling along in a "I might go to the centre stage, I might not" kind of way.
People in the press centre were moaning about Amir's vocals but the Schlagerboys didn't notice, too busy admiring his schlager hair and nice smile.
