The lady wore white.
We’ve seen variations on white dresses, but Anna Odobescu took us outside of the box at Moldova’s first rehearsal at Eurovision 2019.
That’s because she paired her dress with a rose in a glass box and sand art from Kseniya Simonova.
The projections are mesmerising and seriously elevate Moldova’s package. There was a technical hitch in the first run, and in the second we also lost visuals, but did get to see her belting out the big notes in the climax.
Anna’s vocal was on point from the get go. Some singers hold back in rehearsals but she is not one of them.
There are not a lot of closeups in this performance. Instead the focus is the sand art and the narrative. And with the sand art alone this stands out from the crowd.
What is clear is that Moldova is firmly on course to qualify.
