Pandas love bamboo.
And at Austria’s first rehearsal at Eurovision 2019, Austria’s Paenda proved she is no exception.
She began her performance amongst a forest of light-up bamboo-like sticks alone on stage.
Paenda wore a simple black outfit, sat on a stool and nailed her vocal.
In one run she even shed a tear, which communicates the emotional impact of the song, and shows her strength of feeling.
This did elevate to a degree from the studio cut, but a greater sense of progression will help.
Initial runs were actually black and white, which was not intentional.
Paenda had one of the best voices today, but there is room for the production to be improved.
