Nika Kocharov & Young Georgian Lolitaz from Georgia have just completed their first rehearsal of their song “Midnight Gold” at Eurovision 2016. The entire performance was unapologetically colourful, and the boys were serving up some psychedelic ’70s realness. The show sources heavy inspiration from vintage styling but the performance does not feel dated in the slightest.
The mood and style of the performance stays fairly consistent throughout the whole three minutes. The stage is continuously flooded with yellow and purple lighting which creates excitement and engagement.
The boys are classic rockers. There is this air of an uncaring attitude which adds to the vintage feeling of the performance. There is a sense of unity between Nika and the band – feeding off each others energy as they perform. It brings the entire motto of the contest “Come Together” to life.
However, the most exciting part could be the camera choices of the performance. The entire show delivers mirroring, black and white shots and unique camera angles in spades. Along with the lighting choices, it really adds to the excitement of the whole show and makes it enjoyable to watch.
The Georgian entry could potentially be the most surprising in regards to the staging that we’ve had here on day 4 of Eurovision 2016. Everyone should start considering this as a real contender to qualify for the final.
