Rehearsing right now inside the Expo Tel Aviv is KEiiNO, performing “Spirit in the Sky” for Norway. 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!
KEiiNO are all wearing black outfits. At the start of the performance, Tom and Fred are on the catwalk in front of the stage while Alexandra stands on the main stage. The guys later join her on the main stage.
The LED backdrop shows snowy mountains in the colours of the northern lights and towards the end, the screens turn to reveal the golden lights behind it.
There are some very fast and clever camera cuts. On the third run we saw some smoke on the stage and towards the end, we saw fire during Fred’s joiking and the last chorus.
The trio work very well together and they have great chemistry. Their vocals also sound good and Alexandra’s high note is just perfect.
