Remember Eurovision 2020? 41 artists planned to storm the stage in Rotterdam to take home that coveted trophy.
That painful fact aside, there’s still plenty to remember and cherish as we cry into our pillows while listening to all these entries on a loop. Thank to Athena Manoukian, we now get a small little glimpse into how one of the most interesting and stylish music videos of this year’s contest came to be made. This almost four minute long video flashes and zooms through various scenes featuring lots of rehearsing, crew members running around, Athena shining bright like a diamond and cameras trying to capture all the action until it all comes together to create the visual feast that was the ‘Chains on You’ music video. Check it out for yourselves:
Athena was off the chain!
It has been one LONG year. It’s easy to forget that at one point we actually had a season full of national finals. Among them Depi Evratesil, which crowned Athena Manoukian as the winner. I’m talking about a literal crown here! She can be seen wearing one in the flashy music video, which looked like it came straight from the combined minds of Marilyn Monroe and Rihanna. Obviously, she didn’t actually get to chain people up on the stage, but her song continues to ring in our ears. Not in yours, you say? Well, you can fix that by reliving the song down below:
Was ‘Chains on You’ one of your favorite Eurovision 2020 entries? Did this clip make you wish to see even more behind-the-scenes footage? Are diamonds REALLY a girl’s best friend?
