Rehearsing right now inside the Expo Tel Aviv is John Lundvik, performing “Too Late for Love” for Sweden. 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 close-up shots of John in an identical version of his Melodifestivalen performance. John is wearing a black t-shirt and leather-look trousers. He has the gold light panel above him which begins to pulsate for the pre-chorus, the LED backdrop remains dark.
He continues to follow his Melodifestivalen routine until white spotlights centre on him for the second pre-chorus. As we enter the second chorus, his four backing singers appear with a punch in the air!
The LEDs now spring to life with white stripe flashes but this exposes the gold light panel prop which doesn’t seamlessly fit with the patterns on the LED backdrop.
