A “Storm” is coming and Montenegro’s Jana Mirkovic is at the center of it! During her first rehearsal at Junior Eurovision 2015 she treated the circular stage like a runway, sashaying to the beat while gyrating with her hips. Four backing dancers help fill the space. They strut, strut, strut, but sadly never make use of the two curving runways, which seems like a bit of a waste. No matter. A neon cityscape on the LED gives this an appropriately energetic backdrop. For weeks we’ve been wondering how Jana would fill the 30-second lyrical pause 90 seconds into the song. Today she answered that by unveiling a series of yellow drapes which her dancers tie around her body Sertab Erener style. During the first take she looked a tad frightened — it was as if the dancers were going to squeeze the life out of her! But she grew in confidence on subsequent takes and left us thinking this is more of an earworm than we had anticipated.
