Rehearsing right now inside the Expo Tel Aviv is Leonora, performing “Love Is Forever” for Denmark. 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!
The beginning of Leonora’s performance is identical to that seen in Dansk Melodi Grand Prix. In her white shirt with braces, Leonora begins with the blue sky summer background that is pulled away to reveal the audience behind her.
During the second verse, Leonora now climbs a ladder herself onto her big chair in which she is joined by the two female backing singers. Once the second chorus arrives, the three of them do the simple swaying choreography that is signature to Love is Forever performances.
During the middle eight, we revert back to what we have seen previously with two more backing singers, this time both male, carrying their own ladders towards the chair. Once they climb them into the final chorus, the five of them all sit upon the chair together to perform their swaying movements.
Throughout the performance, the LED backdrop is a very bright, summery and cartoony landscape.
As soon as the video clip of this rehearsal is made available via the official Eurovision Song Contest YouTube channel, we will embed the video right here.
