Croatia’s Mia Dimsic “Guilty Pleasure” — Eurovision 2022 second rehearsal
Padraig: Rehearsals are an opportunity for artists to play around with various elements of their performances. And that’s exactly what Mia Dimsic did this afternoon. She overcame some in-ear and sound complications to deliver “Guilty Pleasure” first in English, and then in a mix of English and Croatian. As for the staging, Mia wore a pink gown. Now, she’s joined by three dancers, rather than just the one like in Dora. Together, the quartet showcase the conflict at the heart of the song through their choreography. We see Mia interact with both her “devotion” and her “guilty pleasure”. There’s also a female dancer, who’s possibly another representation of Mia or perhaps the partner of the man Mia is having her affair with. The performance is certainly more coherent than before, but it remains to be seen whether it will pack enough punch to make it to the final.
