Norway has rehearsed for the second time

Alexander Rybak has just left the stage after his second rehearsal in Lisbon.

It seems that Rybak is a little pale and shiny in the eyes when the first of the three run-throughs start, but it does not prevent the Norwegian representative from delivering on the stage. He is smiling and enjoying himself, the dancers contribute with a lot of energy and the colors are just as great as we remember them from the first rehearsal on Tuesday. It seems that Rybak holds a little back and saves his voice.

The second and third run-throughs have been completed and we think Lisa Børud has a tough attitude that matches the song and it helps to lift the number a few steps up. She shines with the other dancers. 
All in all, this is a nice test, but we can see that Alexander is not completely on top, but this is just a rehearsal, so we wish him a good recovery and hope he gets healthy and well, so that the energy is on top when it really counts next week.
