Day 2: Music video inspiration for Ela from Malta – REVIEW

ESCXTRA are live from Minsk for day 2 of rehearsals ahead of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2018!

Next up to rehearse today is Ela from Malta. We have just watched the first run through of Marchin’On live on screen and here is our initial overview.

Rehearsal review

The video screens reflect the setting from the music video right from the outset and throughout the performance.

There’s two backing dancers on stage with Ela, one of which gets onto the piano in the second verse.

By the time we go to the final chorus, there are another two backing dancers. These started on the satellite stage in the first verse and joined the main stage in the final minute.

We also get a great overhead shot of Ela’s branding for the song during the middle eight. The backing dancers are all wearing the yellow cross branded shirts too.

There’s elements of choreography from the music video throughout this piece. 

Ela is dressed in a lovely Maltese red outfit – we do like a good outfit that reflects the colours of the flag!

Watch the rehearsal!

Stay tuned for our review of Roksana Węgiel’s rehearsal of Anyone I Want To Be next for Poland. Furthermore, click here for a recap of everything that happened on day 1!
