It’s time to get your sunscreen out because Nicky Byrne just completed his first rehearsal of “Sunlight” at Eurovision 2016 for Ireland and he is burning us up. The handsome Irishman came out full throttle in his first rehearsal, nailing all of his cues and camera angles and giving an overall highly energetic and entertaining performance.
Much like a lot of other performances this year, “Sunlight” heavily utilises red lighting throughout the performance. The centre of the stage is lit up red as Nicky struts his stuff down the stage. As the song builds, the lighting moulds into more of a golden orange colour and the band behind Nicky is revealed.
A majority of the staging tends to maintain the same pace, colour and style throughout the rest of the entry – the only exception being the bridge before the final chorus where the entire stage is submerged in stars and disco-ball lighting.
Nicky has maintained the casual feeling of his performance through his outfit. He sported a simple jacket with brown and red and a pair of skinny jeans. It’s unclear at this stage if the outfit is going to change, but he looked charming and handsome regardless.
