Introduction: Relates to a performance at the Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool and Starting, the way the verb is formed is sometimes more important than the singing. However, the first two live performances of Mia Nicolae (27) and Dionne Cooper (29) aren’t exactly reassuring when it comes to reaching the Eurovision final.


Take it easy: a young and inexperienced couple who are not yet used to each other, take a re-test on Afas Live after a failed first attempt. In Madrid, the two do not hear themselves sing a week ago, fail to make up for those failed headphones (in the ears) and sound not entirely pure, sometimes out of tune. Then the pressure is irrevocably high at a home game in front of 5,000 people, where everyone seems to be watching you.

In that light, Nikolai and Cooper didn’t fare too bad on Saturday in Amsterdam. However, everything is shaking very loudly, especially the explosions which don’t come through well enough. It is undoubtedly better than in Spain, where they heard how things went wrong the morning after their performance. “When we heard it, we thought: Oh, that’s not how it should be,” Nikolai says on Afas Live a few hours before they took the stage. “We didn’t realize it right away after that, but we were right next to him,” Cooper concludes.

Not present in Madrid and Amsterdam, Lawrence is not the man to keep the duo going. At the same time, he and his fiancée and writing partner Jordan Garfield are in charge of the art part in Liverpool.

last week , corridorThe singer, his subjects received particular encouragement after the false start in Madrid. Cooper: Well, Duncan said that’s the case at those pre-parties. Conditions are not as good everywhere as in the Netherlands. He said don’t worry too much about it. It’s about Liverpool, there you go, Duncan said shines. “

If those words come true, there is clearly still some work to be done in the coming weeks. Someone will have to take the initiative to rescue two talented young artists from a quagmire. The main question now is who feels called to do so.
