Sanna Nielsen, one of the favourites to win Eurovision, has just revealed her plans for the 59th Eurovision Song Contest. Once again she’s going to light it up.
Christer Bjorkman, Sweden’s head of delegation, says Sanna will bring the drama with an amazing light display. He has decided not to change the basic look of her performance from Melodifestivalen. However, there will be some minor changes to polish this already brilliant stage performance.
Sanna will stand on an octagonal podium, which will be black and a little sparkly.“It will seem like it’s actually floating”, Bjorkman said. There will also be 18 lights around her, even more than at #melfest.
The goal is to make the spectators feel that they are closer to the performer, in a modern and elegant way. As for Sanna, she will wear a stunning dress to showcase her not as an adult, but as a young star. (As you’ll remember, Europe was shocked to learn that Miss Nielsen is only 29. See photo comparison with Ace Wilder at #19 here). We hope she ditches the pantsuits.
The dangling crystals from MF will not make an appearance and nothing will hang from the ceiling, except for a disco ball at the end of the performance. Please note: Alcazar will not emerge from inside!
Sweden’s return to darkness smacks of Loreen in 2012! They are taking this real serious, y’all…..
