He’s the Ukrainian star who’s crossed borders to represent Belarus at Eurovision 2018. And Alekseev has brought some of the most out-there staging with him to Lisbon as well.
Amongst many things, Alekseev presents a rose to the camera, which then seems to turn in to a female dancer.
And Alekseev says that he’s met a woman before, similar to what the dancer on stage represents. “She presented her love, taking it back again, she hurt me, she make me smile, she makes me alive”.
“Love can hurt you, it’s a great emotion, when you can feel some bad feelings and some good feelings. When you feel, it means you are alive”.
Alekseev also revealed the secret of the “wound” that is on his back. Alekseev says it’s a secret, but admits that it’s actually created in a very simple way: it’s a t-shirt!
The platform that he rises on symbolizes for him the best moment in a relationship: “When you understand you go to the sky, and want to fly”.
Alekseev has practiced his vocals a lot the past period and he believes his best day (vocally) will be in the future. He is still working on his camera skills, but he thinks that that will improve before the next rehearsal: “I feel we are comfortable, I like my stage show, I really like the meaning of the visual effects. I really want our music and act to come close to the European audience!
