Switzerland and Turke take to the amazing Moscow stage for the third session of Eurovision Song Contest first semi final rehearsals in Moscow.
Song 8: Switzerland
The five piece band Lovebugs and the penultimate to take to the stage on the first day of technical rehearsal for the Eurovision Song Contest semi final. The band is made up of lead vocalist Adrian Sieber, gutarist Thomas Rechberger, keyboardist Stefan Wagner, Florian Sennon on bass and Simon Ramseierwh plays the drums. Their song The Highest Heights is a soft blend of indie rock.
Very strong vocals and a powerful rock performance from the Lovebugs bring a rock concert atmosphere inside the Arena. Head banging from the drummer and clapping from the lead singer will excite the crowd, no doubt. The LED screens in the background depict urban scenes with skyscrapers which soon give way to the snow capped Swiss Alps, conveying thus the song's title about the Highest highs.
Song 9: Turkey
When she was chosen internally to represent Turkey in the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest her presentation on the selection show and the extensive promotion tour throughout Europe, did not include live vocal performance by Hadise. Well today she answered all the question positively by providing a very strong vocal performance.
Düm tek tek is an up-tempo song mixing pop music with some minor folk elements. The lyrics are a declaration of love and in fact, the singer tells that she is so much in love that it makes her heart beat like a drum.Hadise is accompanied on stage by two male and three female backing dancers/vocalists. The choreography is rather simple involving a lot of oriental belly dancing and given a more modern flavour by the male dancers' hip hop attitude. The backdrop is very intense, in red and black depicting hearts and butterflies.
