She is standing tall all on her own. Gabriela Guncikova from the Czech Republic has just completed the second rehearsal of her song “I Stand” here at Eurovision 2016 in Stockholm and the second rehearsal was even more impressive than the first.
Gabriela has kept every staging element from her second rehearsal, but after hitting her marks a lot more concisely, the entire performance looked slick and professional.
One minor change but with massive impact is during the final chorus, Gabriela grabs a hold of her pony tail and removes the pin in her hair and shakes her hair out. This minor change looks incredibly sexy on camera. And just when you think it can’t improve, light wind catches her hair as the flowers bloom on the LED behind her. It’s absolutely beautiful.
