On Friday evening Electo Velvet — the UK’s Eurovision 2015 act — performed their number “Still in Love with You” on the Graham Norton Show. They had flappers shaking around them and Bianca worked her shoulder shimmy while Alex went all ski-da-di-da-boo. Actors Rupert Everett and Miranda Hart watched from a nearby sofa.
Electro Velvet: Live Performance on Graham Norton
The flapper ladies dressed for the occasion, but the male dancers seem to be styled for the early 90s. I get they are trying to update 1920s swing, but the ladies are totally outclassing the guys here. #firethestylist.

Judging from reactions on the official BBC Eurovision Facebook page, the performance didn’t go down well. We’ll let you read these for yourself:
Afterwards Graham asked whether their staging in Vienna would be similar to what they did during his show. Bianca said no. “We had so many people in the video, so we have to up our game and do something really spectacular. We’re working on something quite cool.”
Alex also joked that they might show up on stage in just their pants. It would certainly raise eyebrows if not their tally of points.

What do you think of their performance? Can they change things up and slay in Vienna?
