Read our handy guide for a more detailed look at this contest’s rehearsal schedule.
Rehearsing today for Wales inside the Gliwice Arena is Erin Mai, performing “Calon yn Curo (Heart Beating)”. As the first rehearsals are closed to the press, this review is based upon content made public by the EBU and TVP.
Erin Mai is dressed in a black top and high-waisted red skirt gown. Halfway through the performance, she is joined by four female dancers in black dungarees with different neon colour tops underneath: green, pink, yellow and orange!
The Welsh LED backdrop during the chorus is similarly colourful, with lots of heart images to emphasise the title of the song: “Heart Beating”. We also see the title of the track on the LED screen in both Welsh and English. The LED backdrop during the verses continues along the same lines but is a little less bright to give an added boost when we reach the effortlessly catchy chorus!
Erin Mai has promised us some “clogging” in the latter of her performance which we don’t get to see in this clip, so stay tuned to ESCXTRA where we’ll give you a first-hand review of Erin’s second rehearsal on Friday!
