Rehearsing right now inside the Expo Tel Aviv is Sarah McTernan, performing “22” for Ireland. 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 performance begins with the wavelength from the beginning song appearing on LED Background. It then opens, with Sarah walking in on her red dress as the stage light shines behind her.
She then gets on the diner table on the middle of the stage, where she is then accompanied by two female backing dancers, as the number 22 appears on the screen, accompanied with an animated Sarah on the LED background.
When she gets the penultimate chorus of the song, Sarah goes on and lays down on the table, where a starry background appears from the LED background.
As we then get on to the final chorus of the song, 22 appears on the LED background prominently, rotating from red lips, to the number 22.
