He’s singing “Our Choice” in tomorrow night’s first semi-final. And following his first rehearsal, Iceland’s Ari Ólafsson caught up with our William.
“The rehearsal was great”, Ari says. “Coming from a crazy flight and it was early in the morning, but still you always need to up yourself”.
Ari is impressed:”This is unlike anything else. This is the huge stage. The arena is beautiful and so empowering”.
His outfit is designed to represent the complexity of life: “the red is the lava underneath and the rest (the white colour), the ice underneath. It represents like complicated pain: the stories that we have like pain, love and sorrow”.
“There have been difficult choices for me. Like keeping my emotions in, even righteous anger”.
Ari concludes with a classy Stevie Wonder cover.
