Vienna Calling: Estonia’s first impressions

by Jessica Weaver 157 views

The team at have arrived in the host city of Vienna, ready to bring you the latest news live from the Eurovision scene. Today we’re here at the first Eurovision 2015 rehearsals, ready to bring you the latest updates on location live from the Wiener Stadthalle.

Today’s penultimate rehearsal comes from the Estonian duo Elina Born & Stig Rästa, who rehearsed on the Eurovision stage for the very first time. The staging is very similar to that of their Eesti Laul performance from back in February. Appearing on the stage floor are two big shadows of the Estonian duo.

Elina is wearing a black dress on the stage, whilst Stig is wearing a full dark blue suit. Whilst the performance is very simplistic, the duo have great chemistry which makes for a good performance.

Elina Born and Stig Rästa’s first impression from their rehearsal can be viewed below.

Following the Estonian rehearsal, we asked members of the press for their first impressions on today’s performance.
