The first rehearsal for Belgium has just come to a close, and Laura Tesoro with her song “What’s The Pressure” has proved to the press here in Stockholm that she has come to slay! The staging is similar to the Belgian national final, but on a much larger scale and she uses every inch of her petite body to coat the entire stage in her magnificence.
The staging of the song is a jazzed up version of the show y’all will already be familiar with. It’s like Belgium sprinkled some cinnamon on top and spiced it up. The classic disco lights are displayed all along the LED floor and walls, and the big stair case is present for the backing singers to stand on.
The biggest improvement however is in the production of the choreography. Laura is smashing out some incredibly challenging dance moves – even managing to keep up with the professional dancers behind her. Laura and her posse walk down stage in the beginning donning small handkerchiefs in the colours of the Belgian flag. Then the team get down and dirty as the kill some funkalicious moves on stage.
Vocally, Laura was flawless. Despite popping and locking her body throughout the performance, not once was she out of breath or in pain. It’s really quite amazing and it’s a phenomenally catchy end to the second semi final.
