So hot that his hands are on fire! Ukrainian superstar and representative Mélovin has released the music video for his entry, “Under The Ladder”. Cue the superstitions.
Harking back to his performance in the Ukrainian national final, the video is full of fire and passion. Mélovin is dressed in monochrome, serving a real magician’s look. At times, he almost moves as if he is possessed, with anti-gravity choreography that harks back to Michael Jackson’s famous moves in “Smooth Criminal”.
He’s joined by Top Model of the World 2017 Julia Gershun, who’s the seductive siren who’s dressed in red, tempting him throughout. The video is very well-shot, giving much focus to Mélovin for the superstar that he is. In short, it’s pure art.
Towards the end of the clip, he’s burning up so hot that he’s hands are on fire. In filming the iconic clip, Melovin tells how the climactic moment brought some drama, saying:
“At some point, I just felt like my hands are actually on fire and asked to check if the protection is still working. Needless to say, it all nearly gone by that time due to the endless takes. Out team fixed everything, we finished the shooting without burning flash and I love the result.”
Melovin will close out the second semi final for Ukraine on 10 May. Before then, we’ll see his first rehearsal on May 2 in the Altice Arena.
