What’s changed in Rehearsal Two?
Rehearsing right now inside the Ahoy Arena is James Newman, performing “Embers” for the United Kingdom. Here is what has changed since the first rehearsal, and what the team thinks of the changes.
There is now more gold lighting in the second verse and the chorus, vocally James did sound slightly strained in the verses but his energy was high and he seemed to be enjoying himself a lot more on stage this time around. This is a song which is built for an audience. They have really played around with the lighting on this one the blues and reds are more vibrant, also in the build up to the end it was pitch black before, but now it doesn’t feel as dark.
In case you missed it…
