Rehearsing today for Germany inside La Seine Musicale is Pauline, performing “Imagine Us”. As the first rehearsals are closed to the press, this review is based upon content made public by the EBU and France Télévisions.
Pauline has brought with her a wonderfully colourful staging concept in which she is joined by a crowd of cartoon characters in front of a giant rainbow holding “protest” signs with images of the Earth and love hearts to symbolise the message of being kind to our planet.
On the stage itself, Pauline is joined by two female dancers, also holding signs of the Earth and the peace motif. We also see the dancers create a love heart shape with the arms around Pauline at one stage of the performance.
Yesterday afternoon, Pauline found out she would be opening Junior Eurovision 2021 and the draw couldn’t have made a better choice, despite it being the second time in-a-row that Germany have been drawn to open. This song has the perfect energy and message to begin this year’s contest and it is the perfect representation of what Junior Eurovision is all about.
