Posted:They look like models turned fire spinners. With only maybe 1% of antti's skill. They were as far as I can tell, dropless, and clearly shirtless which is what they were paid for. Shame about their tiny flames and kinda bad choreography.

I thought that too at first. The commentator was all "finest performers in Finland" or something and I was all "Holy smokes! The Rubber Heart Duo?".

But nah. Disappointing really frown

Posted:Got to tell you something. That's me on the stage. Do you guys really think that it is worth to put some difficult juggling patterns on the eurovision stage when you are ment to be backround visuals and take cameracontacts. That wasn't our show it was waldo's show. What comes to size of flames. There is pretty strict rules on the stage and staffs must be almost dry. They claim for zero drops. What comes to the cheesy shirtless style that's what you are paid for... after all it a eurovision !

Posted:I dont think anyone said anything about juggling patterns.

I'd have liked to see some sort of doubles pattern other than swirly swirly swirly swirl, but as I said earlier, they probably wouldnt have wanted that since you're just backing up the vocal performers.

Well I mentioned the juggling patterns because that's what we mostly do....

Posted:Hey, so far as background stage performances go, i was quite impressed. You guys have definitely got skills, and from watching just the eurovision video, that was obvious, because while you didn't do anything too crazy, the fact that you were doing some of the stuff you were with enough confidence not to drop at all was impressive, because a drop could've been disasterous! Imagine if it rolled onto the leg of one of the singers, she freaks out and stops singing and starts screaming, but the singing voicetrack continues... that would've been terrible for all, I think you did a great job, and I know you can't judge somebody's skill from this sort of performance, because often you're told to keep it simple so as not to detract from the focus.

EDIT: Just watched the video you posted, amazing stuff. If you were doing that in the eurovision performance, the audience would've forgotten there were even people singing on stage. Great staff juggling, what circus school is that you're training at?

Posted:Thanks, Finally here is people who understand that there is difference to have own gig or backround gig and there is a difference in doing show in eurovision stage or show in the park. I have been performing seven years now and there is hundreds of small things you need to consider before performing in eurovision stage.
