OMAGA!! Benny Cristo has arrived for his first rehearsal, read all about it below:
Country: Czech Republic (#CZE)
Act: Benny Cristo
Semifinal: Second (20/05/2021)
Position in Running Order: 03/17
First and foremost, Benny’s outfit POPS. He’s wearing a glittery gold jacket, having cut his dreads for a sleek silver buzzcut. He looks very dapper and attractive, a nice follow-up to Uku Suviste.
Benny’s staging is in line with the female-fronted dancepop from the first semifinal. He has four dancers (two boys, two girls) that he interacts with on the stage. He dances playfully with the boys and flirts with the girls.
The backdrop switches between magenta and cyan swirls during the chorus, and sharp silver geometric shapes during the verses.
During the bridge, Benny and his dance crew walk over to the satellite stage, to interact with the audience. Overall, a solid performance from the Czech. The only minor negativet is that Benny didn’t seem to be fully into the rehearsal. Perhaps it was a little bit early for the Czech party boy?
