Coco Chanel once advised ladies to look in their mirror before leaving the house and take something off. During her first rehearsal at Eurovision 2016 it became clear that Jamie-Lee Kriewitz does not subscribe to this “less is more” mantra. She appeared on stage looking like an expensive cupcake, replete with baby blue frosting and countless sprinkles in the form of glittering accessories and furry pom-poms. Channeling a harajuku school girl, she paired a thigh-skimming skirt with knee-high socks. Very naughty, but also nice if you’re into the harajuku schoolgirl look.
The staging is very Halloween. Spider webs, a menacing moon and smokey clouds create a haunting atmosphere that fits thematically with the song — a mid-tempo tribute to the fears and tears that come with a difficult breakup. The production features some interesting camera angles, including a slow pan from behind Jamie to the audience and pans from her feet upward. Given her rather short skirt, the latter might prove unintentionally salacious.
