First rehearsal recap
Second rehearsal changes
As this is my first day here in the press center in Minsk, it was the first time I saw the show. However, based on the previous article, I can tell that in this case as well there are no major changes to the performance. The show starts with a close-up shot of Ela and initially it starts off as quite dark but then lights up, with yellow being the main colour as seen in the X of the dancers. Snippets of the music video still appear on the big LED screens.
Unsurprisingly, Ela’s vocals are spot on and she is able to transmit emotions impeccably.
