Tamta knows how to deliver a surprise. And she did it repeatedly today during her first rehearsal, which was high-impact and pacey — and most definitely didn’t disappoint.
The Georgian-born queen appears in a high-fashion pleather look: her black pleather boots snaked all the way up her thighs, leading to a translucent bustier hidden beneath a black pleather jacket. Literally standing on point, she pops and drops and oozes sex appeal with every flick of the arm.
Portraying a woman in total control of herself, it’s more than fitting that she has four male backing dancers who clearly have her love on replay. Wearing bowler hats, they’re urban cowboys who perform a modern taken on country line dancing mated with something more street. It’s hard to explain, but perhaps it’s Outlaw in ‘Em meets Fuego.
At one point the men rip off Tamta’s jacket and she turns the stage into a runway all her own.
