Rehearsing right now inside the Expo Tel Aviv is Luca Hänni, performing “She Got Me” for Switzerland. 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 focus on Luca Hänni’s performance is in the dancing. Luca and his four backing dancers are in perfect sync and their slick choreography looks great. The third run included some fireworks.
The camera work is very interesting and they use different cropping styles, including the “letterbox” (see: Armenia 2018). They also use some slow motion effects.
There is not much happening on the screens and the colours are just red and black. Luca is wearing a black sleeveless shirt while the dancers are in full red.
Luca sounds good even when dancing at the same time. The backing vocalists’ microphones were bit low on the first run, but that got improved later.
Stay tuned for our reviews for the rest of today’s rehearsals here at the Expo Tel Aviv. If you want to know what to expect for the rest of the day, check out our rehearsal schedule.
