Read our handy guide for a more detailed look at this contest’s rehearsal schedule.
Rehearsing today for Russia inside the Gliwice Arena is Tatyana Mezhentseva and Denberel Oorzhak, performing “A Time for Us”. As the first rehearsals are closed to the press, this review is based upon content made public by the EBU and TVP.
Tatyana and Denberel begin their performance centre stage, with a small distance between them. They are dressed in similar outfits of different colours, Tatyana in white and Denberel in gold. They have matching belts and matching boots which almost gives them the look of spacemen and women.
This is likely the aim of their costumes as the LED backdrop portrays space-like imagery with various stars in a dark sky. As the verse progresses we see other shapes appear on the LEDs, blue and purple in colour. As the duo sing the lyric “to save the world”, we get a spherical image in the background.
The performance is focused on the two talented performers as they deliver their message of saving the world!
