Firstly, remind yourselves what happened in the first rehearsal:
And now here is what we’ve noticed in today’s second rehearsal:
Miki’s show kicks off with a curtain opening effect, focusing our attention on a center box divided into six boxes. He stands in the middle top one and as soon as we get a close up shots of him, the background changes to a bright yellow. He energetically interacts with the dancers, four of them, and as the refrain starts there is an explosion of colours like fireworks happening all around. The theme then changes to a night sky full of stars and a dancing robot appears, remaining until the end. He continues to engage with his dancers and the colorful backdrop returns, this time having an active volcano effect. Afterwards, we see the audience projected in the LED backdrop, with the outline taking the shape of a colorful fingerprint. He wraps the performance by running happily and energetically around the catwalk, always engaging performance. Overall, an extremely uplifting performance from the talented Miki.
