For years we’ve known she has one of the biggest voices in the Baltics. And during the grand final of Latvia’s Supernova, Eurovision 2020 singer Samanta Tina made it clear she’s also got some of the best moves. It’s not lost on the “Still Breathing” singer. She’s told LTV that she was so pleased with her staging and performance in Riga that she’ll be keeping it the same when she heads to Rotterdam.
“The performance is fully-fledged, very powerful, not standard for Eurovision, and people in Europe are already excited about it in terms of reactions and comments,” she said. “Is there something more to change? For the most part, I think we won’t change anything because the staging is ready.”
Spoken like a true diva!
Samanta’s performance celebrates the modern woman who manages to balance work, family and more. She played with that idea with three on-stage backing singers who melded the idea of work and pleasure. They wore black braziers and blue visors that covered their faces, and held spray bottles filled with pink cleaning fluid. Apparently these women can look sexy while cleaning the house and raising a family.
For her part, Samanta wore a lot of fringe and stood stage left throwing shapes. During the drop in the chorus she really let loose, dancing frantically as the strobes worked overtime. It was a lot to take in but added a delightfully zany transition from chorus to verse.
Some of our YouTube viewers have pointed out the very stark costume change that Samanta had from music video to live performance. While both costumes featured ample fringe, she swapped out her white garment for another in striking red. Some of you felt like the white better reflected the light, while others said red conveyed the passion and fire behind the song.
Either way, this performance remains properly lit. From the fast-moving camera cuts which leave you dizzy and dazed to the choreographed leans of the backing vocalists, there’s a strange charm to this rather industrial track.
Are you happy that her staging will remain the same? Did you prefer the white costume or the red? Sound off below!
