Moldovan Eurovision representative Lidia Isac has unveiled her new video for “Falling Stars” today. Shot in the centre of the Moldovan capital and on a field nearby, the video gives a stellar date twist to the song.
Lidia is watching the news about a scientific discovery with astronomical implications — gravitational waves — when is then approached by an astronaut. Clad in a glittery blue dress with silver boots, Lidia seems poised to follow him to the end of the Universe, down Cosmonauts Street. The two interact with a star balloon, a drone, as well as colourful smoke in different locations around Chisinau and on a nearby field. At the end of the video, on the top of Cosmos (get it?) hotel in Chisinau, Lidia raises her date’s visor to reveal a galaxy instead of an actual face. The mystery deepens!
Lidia’s previous promotional video for “Falling Stars”, released back in February for O melodie pentru Europa 2016, was a more modest studio affair and saw her in wind machine heaven, with glittering little stars falling all around her.
We’re certainly glad that Lidia has found herself a galactic date in time for Stockholm. We wonder if he’s going to join her on the Eurovision stage!
So what do you think about Lidia Isac’s new video for “Falling Stars”? And what do you think about Moldova’s chances of advancing from the First Semi-final with this song?
