Today Elina Born & Stig Rästa from Estonia returned to the Wiener Stadthalle to rehearse their song, Goodbye To Yesterday on the impressive stage for the second time.

Ahead of their rehearsal, Elina Born & Stig Rästa were followed to the stage by a crew from broadcaster ERR who have been following their journey to and in Vienna. After the first rehearsal on Monday, it was confirmed that some changes have been made to the presentation to further optimise it, including adjusted graphics and completely new camera angles.

More charisma, more emotion

On stage it was also apparent that Elina and Stig had a much better connection with the cameras and each other than the first rehearsal, really adding emotion and drama to the performance. 

"We feel a lot more confident now"

During the Estonian press conference, the moderator asked Elina and Stig how they think their rehearsal went to which they replied, "we are much happier now and feel a lot more confident". 
They were also asked about how non-english speakers will interpret the song in terms of the emotions shown to which Elina replied, "it is a sad song, and we want people to feel that emotion". 
Mart Nomet from broadcaster ERR was asked about why Estonia often does so well at the Eurovision Song Contest in spite of being a small country to which he replied, "we open the floor to all types of music in Estonia and no one really writes typical Europop anymore, which may help to explain it".
