Wiwi: Emmelie de Forest, the Eurovision front-runner, has made the smart move of leaving her performance almost exactly as it was at the Danish national final. The stage remains fiery–think red, orange and yellow—and her two drummers remain on stage, giving the song its instantly recognizable heart beat. The biggest change is that she’s taken a note from Azerbaijan’s Ell & Nikki and added a waterfall of sparks at the end of her number. She looks great and sounds it, too. The folks at Eurovision.tv—probably at the behest of SVT—have only given us a glimpse of her performance, but from what we can tell it is on point and remains the one to beat.
P.S. A lot of our readers have been wondering who her hot drummer is with the sides of his head shaved. If you have any details can you please post them in the comments box below?
Vebooboo: Ima make it simple. Ima make it clear. This song needs to win. When Emmelie won her national final she pieced together amazing vocals and beautiful staging. Today she did exactly the same. No surprises. Pure beauty. Pure victory. This needs to win.
