Impression of the first rehearsal of Eleftheria Eleftheriou.
Greece will be hoping that number three will prove to be lucky, as that is the position that Eleftheria Eleftheriou will be performing in the running order, with the song Aphrodisiac. This afternoon she had her first rehearsal on stage in the Crystal Hall.
Speaking shortly before her rehearsal, Elefteria admitted, "I'm very excited for this, and I can't wait to get on stage for that first rehearsal. I'm quite nervous because it is the first, and I think that everything will be all right and no technical problems. I hope everything will be ok."
Eleftheria is accompanied on stage by two female and two male backing dancers, plus one female backing singer, who is standing by the microphone on the right hand side of the stage. All the group were dressed casually today in jeans and T-shirts, but there was no doubt as to which country was being represented on stage,as Eleftheria wore a beaded top with the word Greece embroidered across it.
The group performed the typical Greek-style line dancing choreography as part of their routine, against a multi coloured background off various patterns, which was ever changing and included appropriately some crystal type structures. There was an effective use made of the camera that drops down from the ceiling at great speed, before it shoots back up just as quickly.
The song came across very strongly vocally within the hall, and the delegation all seemed very happy with the performance.
