Rehearsing right now inside the Expo Tel Aviv is D mol, performing “Heaven” for Montenegro. We will continue to update this article as each run through takes place, so make sure to keep refreshing for the most up-to-date review!
D-Mol’s performance on the Eurovision stage is completely different from their Montevizija performance. The group is wearing a mixture of white and red colours as their outfits.
In the beginning of the performance, everyone is scattered throughout the stage, and as we get to the chorus, all of the members then meet up on the main stage just in time for the chorus, where they form a circle.
As the chorus goes on, the group does like a group huddle/chant (like what sports teams would do before each game). Then, as the title would say, the group’s interactions bring them together, as does their harmonies throughout the song.
The performance ends with the group doing a simulation of what seems like group member Mirela ‘Fallin’ to the floor.
