If you’re a fan of Lindita’s music video for “World”, then you’re going to be a huge fan of her staging at Eurovision 2017. During her first rehearsal she took visual elements of her music video and made them bigger and more arresting. The performance opens with her singing before mountains and bathed in dark green light. The clock from her video appears on the LED walls and fills the entire circular stage floor, ticking to the beat. Her armada of spaceships sails past, eventually interweaving with the clocks on the screens. The visuals don’t particularly tell a story — the ships remind us of the ones in the Of Monsters and Men video “Little Talks”. But following the somewhat predictable performance from Tamara, this blast of WTF really stands out. Vocally Lindita was as sound as ever. That, combined with her memorable LED, has elevated her to a potential qualifier in our minds.

I’ll be honest: I didn’t quite like the adaptation of the music video to the Eurovision stage! It seems like there’s much going on in the background!

However, The Netherlands had a similar clock themed staging last year and they did well, so who knows? Maybe the overall performance together with the camera angles may work!

It feels like they do not know how good this song could be. The staging is just ok. I wanted something bigger. In the National Final, they made this song seem like a big deal.

I think the staging looks good, the surrealistic approach is kinda interesting. However, the whole performance is not actually 100% focused on either Lindita’s voice or the visuals or the song, so I still fear it will somehow get lost in the running.

There can be no doubt that it’s an tremendous improve over Albania’s staging last year!

All visuals so far look very stale compared to recent years. Is the LED wall itself, that does not allow brighter colours and higher definition, or is just the camera that does not capture it properly?

Did Australia ask to preform later? Why the running order change?

For Australia it is a really long trip, that may be the reasonm they arrived and performed later. The running order hasn’t changed.

They share same manager with Georgia so they shifted after Albania.
