Rehearsing right now inside the Expo Tel Aviv is Roko, performing “The Dream” for Croatia. 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!
Roko has a lot of action from the LEDs. He starts his performance on the floor with the floor giving him LED wings. We get meteors and fire from the background. At the end of the first chorus, he will get joined by two dancers with wings giving him wings. Moreover, the camera angles are very good for the song and bringing the performance to the next level.
The LED screen plays a big role in this performance. From giving Roko LED wings in the beginning to when his two dancers as LEDs fly in the air in the end. It looks good on screen and lives up to the overall very good quality in the second semi-final.
The story with the dancers (angels) is actually, that they fall down on the LED screen in the beginning. The screen turns and the dancers appear in person and giving him wings. Later the dancers fly in the air on the LED.
