Israel: A starry night for Shir & Tim in first rehearsal at Junior Eurovision 2016

Following on from last night’s supermoon, the night sky has been trending. And Israel’s Shir & Tim rode that wave during their first rehearsal. Tim starts off on his own, growing in confidence with each passing note. A minute later, Shir enters the stage gracefully and elegantly with her verse before the duo blend together. There’s minimal choreography, which works well with this tender and inspiring ballad. Sweet and subtle, they’re shining brightly like their backdrop, which features the silhouette of a forest. It appears to be lit by a purple aurora borealis, giving us major shades of Bulgaria 2014. And that did very well indeed…
