The latest artist to rehearse for the second time is DoReDoS for Moldova. We have just watched their latest run through of My Lucky Day live on screen and here is our initial reaction.
Moldova is delivering the magic box to tell a “love story”. It’s about a girl and two men who fancy her. Together with their three backing singers/dancers, they deliver a flawless performance. Camera shots are almost 100% and it looks very solid.
During the first 2/3 part of the song, most of the time only two of DoReDos are out of the box. With their box, they tell the magical story and sometimes do magical tricks we can’t really explain, how they work.
In the last chorus, they get joined by their background dancers/singers to party at the front of the main stage.
Camera shots in this performance: 61
Vocals are not perfect but very good for a performance with so much dancing and with this speed.
They are dressed like the Moldavian flag. The guys wear blue and red suits and the women wear yellow dresses.
