Poland created a fairytale atmosphere at their second rehearsal today, with costumes inspired by a masked ball, in glittering gold and cream.
Anna Swiatczaks' long silver trainnow looks much more in place amongst the gold epaulettes and shining masks of the rest of the group. Two wind machines make sure that the most is made of it visually, before it is discarded.
Michael and Anna almost kiss as they sing the second verse in German, and throughout there is a tactile warmth between the two, which ends, as before, with Michael on his knee before her at the finale of the song.
The whole performance has grown in strength with its new visual interpretation, and the Polish delegation will hope to build on that during the semifinal dress rehearsals next week.
At the press conference afterwards, guest rapper Real McCoy was asked why his final line had been removed in the second rehearsal. "We removed the line 'Come and get your love' today, because it was affecting the sound of the main vocalist. I'm just a guest, so I don't want to get in the way. But the line may go back in for the next rehearsal".
The Polish delegation were a lot happier overall with their second rehearsal, citing that the sound and pictures were really nice.
Poland return on stage for the first dress rehearsal on Wednesday from 14:00 local time.
