One day before the big final, Fabrizio Pennisi, a member of the Dutch couple Re-union, made clear that he is worried about his voice: “I've got the idea my throat is getting hoarse”, he said today after the first dress rehearsal of the Eurovision Song Contest final.
Fabrizio thinks that it's getting worse because they have to practise a lot since they qualified on Wednesday for the final, which takes place tomorrow. He thinks his voice is getting over-used because of the many rehearsals. Every time they have to sing again and that isn�t good for his voice he said. When Fabrizio went to the bus that took them to the hotel, he had a scarf around his neck to protect his throat.
Deen (Bosnia & Herzegovina) and Ruslana (Ukraine) were trying to save their voices for tomorrow, and thus they were not singing during the first dress rehearsal. Though, Fabrizio did sing!
Tonight there will be a second dress rehearsal and tomorrow the last one. He hopes that his voice is getting better because tomorrow the big final takes place.
