Fresh from winning the semi-final of Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model, Nicky Byrne brought his boyish good looks to the Globe Arena in his second rehearsals for “Sunlight”.
Little had changed in the staging since the first rehearsal earlier in the week. Nicky is still wearing his brown, red and black leather jacket, along with dark skinny jeans.
The stage lighting still avoids recreating golden sunlight, instead using an orange-red toned palette. And just like the earlier performance, there’s little variation in the performance, with the same style, same colours, keeping it strongly structured like a traditional live band performance.
He’s keeping it simple, avoiding the sophisticated production techniques other countries are using, instead delivering a live pop-rock performance and letting the song speak for itself.
