The next artist to rehearse is Waylon. We have just watched their first run through of Outlaw In ‘Em live on screen for The Netherlands and here is our initial reaction.


Waylon is joined by four dancers on a podium. Waylon is standing a bit higher, than the others. Waylon is only standing on his higher podium with his guitar and sings while his dancers, dance around him. Later one dancer makes backflips on the catwalk. In the beginning, his dancers are “playing” a guitar and one on the drums, before they drop off the podium.


Waylon is delivering the vocals. As he is not moving, he can focus on his vocals for his song. There is no backing singer visible on stage.


Waylon is wearing a jacket with a Cheetah themed print. Most of his dancers are wearing a jacket, but are shirtless under it and one is complete shirtless.

Watch the rehearsal!
