Meet & greets continue with JOWST and Aleksander from Norway, who reacted to today’s first rehearsal:

We can’t say it’s perfect right now but it will get better.

Speaking of the meaning behind their entry Grab the moment, the duo revealed that the song is about how you should get out of your comfort zone everyday and push yourself.

Following official approval, pre-recorded vocal effects have been programmed into the performer’s keyboard in which human sounds can be heard.

For Norway it is all about mess. And not a beautiful one. Watching the first run it is pretty impossible to answer the question ‘what did I watch right now?’ as except for JOWST, the main singer, there’s a number of backing singers/players on odd electronic instruments (two were spotted for sure) on big settings on stage.

Together with a mix of pink and white lightings and the black of the stage, it is really hard to spot what’s going on as it all looks pretty flat and not developing. This is crucial for such an uptempo entry.

Added-on screen graphics and visualisations are shown during the second run. Now it is more recognisable that there are four people on stage.
