Eurovision 2022 second rehearsals for semi-final two are ongoing this morning. And North Macedonia’s Andrea takes us one song closer to the lunch break. What was “Circles” like on the Eurovision stage? Let’s find out…
North Macedonia’s Andrea “Circles” — Eurovision 2022 second rehearsal
Padraig: This performance is all about Andrea. There are no dancers or props and even the LED effects take a back seat for the most part. Dressed entirely in black, she carries the entire weight of the entry on her shoulders. And she does so admirably. Her vocals are spot on and brimming with feelings. In fact, you’ll be left emotionally exhausted by the end of the three minutes. It’s very intense, which may or may not be a good thing. The LED, while minimal, is very effective. At one point we see the stage start to break up with pieces of the floor whirling around in a circle. Elsewhere, we see handprints on panels towards the front of the stage. The effects are possibly underused, although who’s to say what the delegation had planned for the dark hole of doom on the back LED screen.
