Wiwi: Armenia’s Aram Mp3 confirmed why he’s the bookies favourite this morning during his first rehearsal in Copenhagen. His vocals were on point, and his staging looks amazing.
The number starts off quite dark and brooding. The camera pans in and out on Aram from different angles, and the LED floor transforms into a starry universe. Aram stands in the middle of circular lights on the floor, and is surrounded by rays of light Sanna Nielsen style. His choreography is simple but effective. In some of the takes today he shook his arms and looked like he was swimming in air.
When the song grows more angry, so does the color scheme. It changes from blue to red, and the starry sky becomes a sea of lightning and flashing lights. It turns to fire at the end, and Aram appears to be standing on a giant sun. He closes his eyes and the stage goes black.
It’s moving and measured and builds nicely. Aram’s choreography is simple. . Looks like Aram is living up to the hype.
