We are worn out just looking at Zibbz’s staging for Switzerland. They work pretty much every single part of the stage in the Altice Arena, with Coco taking to both the bridge and the catwalk – whilst looking in complete control as she does so. She throws a drumstick towards the camera in the opening moments of the song (but not any stones), giving a touch of aggression which works in this context.
Because she’s moving so much, Coco doesn’t get too much of a chance to catch the cameras eye. She’s serving A great look though when she does, with a LeAnn Rimes-meets-Madonna early 00’s cowboy vibe. She also calls out to the audience, asking for those who “have ever been hurt” to lend her support. There’s a slight sense of the anarchy as seen in the music video too, as both Coco and Stee (who is mostly stuck behind him drum set on stage throughout) light flares and hold them high in the air. It might be an effective tactic, but it feels a little sub-par after the pyro overload from Saaro Aalto just a couple of songs before. At the very end, Coco mounts the drumset, jumping down at the climax (with a little help from her brother). Rock out, y’all!
