Hurricane Serbia First Rehearsal Eurovision 2021

Serbia’s Hurricane have taken to the Rotterdam Ahoy stage for their first rehearsal of “Loco Loco” at Eurovision 2021.

Serbia’s Hurricane “Loco Loco” — Eurovision 2021 first rehearsal

Oliver: Hurricane’s group cohesion and aesthetic is much stronger now than in any previous performance of “Loco Loco”. Donning black lace dance costumes and lit by red laser lights, Hurricane deliver difficult choreography against the backdrop of a black and white LED screen. This staging is simple, but clean and effective — providing a nice contrast against the undeniably eclectic track. As Sanja sings “1,2, girls come on”, the band struts up the catwalk to finish their performance on the satellite stage. However, the mix is messy throughout. And at this final point especially, the backing vocals are way too loud — so much so that the average viewer might accuse Hurricane of lip-synching. Perhaps that’s a compliment, but it’s not the best look for those who judge songs based on production quality and vocal clarity.

Padraig: Day three of rehearsals closed with a BANG! Hurricane came to slay. Their high contrast black and white aesthetic makes a pleasing break from all the pinks and blues earlier in the day — the ladies in black, up against giant LED columns of white. As the song progresses we get splashes of red, while words like “baby” fill the screen. Soon we’re in a full on disco, complete with LED disco ball. As Sanja shouts “come on girls”, they strut down the catwalk and finish the performance on the satellite stage amidst a load of pyro. Vocally they were on point. The only noticeable slip up was when Ivana tripped during the second run-through. Thankfully, she picked herself up and appeared to be fine for the last take. Best bop of the day.

So sorry to see their hair gets in their way all the time. Maybe shaving their heads could be an option

This was my bottom 5 before rehearsals. It’s still not the greatest song but the way they are having fun is amazing, good singers and it all feels natural. Go girls!

I love it’s all about these 3 ladies. Their presence and energy.
They don’t need any effect or whatever to shine and deliver.
I hope Serbia will do great. Juries should not kill them

wow relief! i was concerned that the staging will be over the top and kitsch but thankfully it is really good. Outfits are cool and backdrop is awesome. I don’t like Sanja’s hair though.

Good luck Serbia!!

I don’t like this song, but there is a lot of choreo and I enjoy good choreo. The staging looks too dark.

They will deliver exactly what they were supposed to do. Some like the song, some doesn’t, but it will be fun to watch.

i am relieved now. i was afraid they’d have a weak staging, but they’re looking and sounding wonderful. these three legends didn’t disappoint !

The girls are amazing in what they do. However organizers need to have a talk with the delegations about the colors. Blue pink purple is part of almost every act, not to mention the 4 dancers that the majority has. Something needs to change to allow acts to stand out

Let’s be honest, the 4 dancers thing was more than predictable. If you have the option to have back vocals and dancers, why should you choose between both? This was the easy option and countries took advantage of it.

I’m really surprised to see the bookies placing them that low, I see a solid entry that can fight for a spot in the top 10… They are good, they look good, they have the charisma required to sell this kind of song… Maybe I’m the weird one, but I like this.

It was what it was. Nothing I did not expect. Choreo was a bit too much and trashy. Song is energetic, the girls have good voices, they look good and they move well but the whole performance is way too OTT.

That was exactly my reaction to their music video. This genre was the thing in 2000s Russia and Ukraine.

The fact that Malta’s and Moldova’s stagings by renowned international designers weren’t received well, and Serbia’s staging by a local artist on the other hand seems so effective shows that more broadcasters should rely on their local forces. They are bound to be more passionate about the staging, and they can focus on fewer countries.

Local input should be a matter of pride when a broadcaster competes under their own flag. Some countries come up with whole selections altogether. Others cannot even manage a song on their own. “Vanity projects”.

This will stand out and the girls are stunning.
While the song isn’t for me, the performance looked flawless and I’m sure they’ll do well.

This may not be my favorite song but they’re definitely giving it their all, this will be such an energetic performance, and the vocals sounded great.
The outfit is such an OG3NE rip off though…

To me there is a plastic bag for four songs of that make this year: Serbia, Moldova, Greece and Poland. Difficult to decide which one is the worse one – but I’d go with Serbia! Good luck to them, though!

We’re talking about songs and musical taste – not people. Let’s not make it personal. I loved the Serbian girl who did a solo peice a few years ago – this year I have four songs I thoroughly dislike – simple as that!

Haha excuse me? Greece has the most quality pop song this year, it’s something you could hear from top notch artists like Dua Lipa.
