Not to be outdone by the Israeli rework Moldova's Lydia reminisces on a relationship which had moments of happiness but where communication let them down. Both videos represent a search for an identity as a Lydia struggling with an East -West clash of cultures returns to a more prosaic existence which only imprisons her, whilst Hovi's conflict is resolved as he steadies himself on the balustrade, and though with only fragments of silver he emerges from his carapace stronger, celebrating his individuality as part of a bigger whole.

Rather a mixed day of rehearsals. Finland and Greece seem to have got it right, with all participants on stage connected and requisite for the production. Netherlands are not going for too much and again I think they've struck the right balance. Nina didn't need a retinue, whereas I'm not sure what Sergei is doing on his own up there. Iveta forgot to wear the dress, and the last thing Serhat needed was a tart on stage I would have thought.
"Welsh flag in Eurovision ban "
story here http://www.dailypost.co.uk/whats-on/whats-on-news/welsh-flag-banned-eurovision-ruthins-11273731
looking forward to seeing this flag at the euros though
It's a shame Traeth but the Eurovision authorities are going to get into an awful mess when allowing the Israeli flag but not the Palestianian, Basque or that of Kosovo, which is recognized by some states and not others. The rule is only the participating countries of the contest and states recognized by the United Nations. http://www.euronews.com/2016/05/02/palestinians-condemn-eurovison-song-contest-for-flag-ban/
