William: Ahead of Eurovision, some critics suggested that Latvia’s Aminata Savadogo would get lost on the vast Eurovision stage. Well think again haters! Aminata towers over the stage thanks to a platform (cleverly hidden by her ruffles) and her voice is so big we should really double the size of the arena. As at Latvia’s national selection this is simple and pared down, and brings drama through her Amazon-inspired dance moves. The dominant color is red — the color of blood, the color of passion, the colour of life! — and behind her we see flashes of ornate cathedral windows. It’s fitting: This performance is spiritual and all-encompassing.
