Victoria’s Secret Angels are known for their wings.
And at Croatia’s first rehearsal at Eurovision 2019, Roko Blazevic channeled the spirit of Gigi Hadid in an angelic performance.
Heavy on the wings, the performance starts with two angels dropping from the sky, as Roko emotes facially in an all-white look.
He begins lying on the LED floor, like a fallen angel, but once he stands up at the first chorus he gains golden wings.
The screens begins dark, moody and devoid of hope.
Then they transition to clouds, as Roko’s backing dancers lift him up, with the LEDs alluding to the heavens above (hey Montenegro!), but whether this performance overall rose high enough to win doubters remains in question.
Roko sounds fantastic, and Croatia has a strong concept, the question here is how much cheese people can stomach.
If you’re all for fondue and could swim in brie, this is the performance for you. But if you’re lactose intolerant you’re going to struggle.
