Next country to have its first rehearsal today was the United Kingdom.
James Newman brought two giant trumpets for his staging this year. The performance starts very dark with the focus on James. We see blue laser lights shining on him. The staging is dominated by blue and red colors.
The giant trumpets are used in different occasions. They include colors. Towards the end of the song we see the backing vocalists at the top of the trumpets.
Overall, this was a great performance by James. However, he needs to improve his vocals. They were not bad, but felt bland sometimes.
