I'm writing today's blog from my Minsk hotel room bed. I look to my side...but Milly's not here. She is probably on my mum's bed at home thinking of me. I really miss her. Going to sleep without her seems weird. Something's missing.
It has been a full day in Minsk. Everything's gone well. I've met loads of people and the press seem to be liking the song. We had some time to wander around Minsk. It is a nice place, extremely up and coming. The cold is unbearable however. I had to wear all my manly vests underneath my clothing in order to preserve some warmth. I will soon be looking the size of Joe Dalmas who is accompanying me! :)
The team behind my site have finally decided to reveal that Anna Christodoulidou will be doing the choreography for Vertigo. I am so, so, so glad that Anna has been chosen! She is wonderful. And she knows her job very well.
The Vertigo choreography will look good. I've seen it now and I'm convinced. Nothing overdramatic, mind you. The song is dramatic in itself. No need to emphasise the obvious. But the blending of moves and other surprises which I'm not supposed to talk about, will make the song complete.
At least that's what I hope.
Jes with his gong and Joseph with his violin have blended well. More than I thought they actually would, especially in Joseph's case. But Anna has handled
Robert Abela, the Maltasong boss, has managed to smile for the first time in weeks. The choreography part was killing him. Look at him. His hair has grown white with worry! He likes what Anna is proposing, just like the rest of us do. Anna will be coming back in a couple of weeks. The three female backing vocalists will also be joining us in Malta round about the same period. They were chosen by Philip Vella with the help of the Swedish guys at G:songs. I'm told they're very good.
Hopefully all will work out well. Even though things are looking up, there are a million things which could go wrong. Hopefully none of them will. Especially my moves.
As many of you may have noticed I'm not really the graceful type. Clumsy is the right word in my case. Anna has given me loads of tricks which I am adopting when practicing my moves. It's not looking as bad as I thought it would. I'm actually getting better! :)
So shall we dance, Anna? I hope so, I really do.
Off to sleep as I have an early flight to Vienna to catch. Have to be at the airport at 3am! Grrr...I hate airports! :)
Speak to you tomorrow!
