She’s representing Greece with a strong traditional sound. And during her first rehearsal Yianna Terzi kept the tradition flowing in a white gown that made her look like an ancient Muse or goddess. Set against a solid blue backdrop, she seemed to embody the Greek flag in all its beauty.
It’s obvious that Yianna has more tricks up her sleeve. There are a series of shots where the camera pans out and we see Yianna looking up surrounded by solid blue. Above her we anticipate augmented reality effects, fire or smoke. But unfortunately the televisions in the press centre cut out during her third run-through — the take where acts pull out all the visuals. Instead of seeing Yianna’s magic, we were shown the press conference of FYR Macedonia instead.
Yianna also had a blue palm which she frequently held up for dramatic effect. And her voice was on point — she’s a seasoned performer and it really shows.
