ESCXTRA are live from Minsk for day 1 of rehearsals ahead of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2018!
The countries rehearsing today, in chronological order, are Armenia, Australia, Azerbaijan, Israel, France, F.Y.R. Macedonia, Georgia, Ireland, Albania and Belarus.
Next up to rehearse is Marija Spasovska from F.Y.R. Macedonia. We have just watched the first run through of Doma live on screen and here is our initial overview.
Marija begins her performance on the B-stage dress in a black hooded cape that covers everything but her face. We see an on screen graphic overlay containing word screen such as “fear”. She’s under a spotlight and stands halfway into the first verse.
As we enter the second verse, Marija walks to the main stage, disposing of her black cape in the process. Now, we see her in a white dress with sequin detail. We then see a graphic overlay covering the screen in rain.
Once this disappears, the LEDs are displaying snow as well as a bridge with a couple in the centre. As we reach the end, the lighting turns red and Marija reveals a snowflake in her hand which stays alight whilst the rest of her and the stage descends into darkness for the final shot.
Watch the rehearsal!
Stay tuned for our review of Tamar Edilashvili’s rehearsal of Your Voice next for Georgia!
