My heart was born a radical
Electric and dynamical
I never listened to the remedies
With no forevers, no eternities
Holding on beyond the night
For a shadow that feels right
Holding on beyond the night to you

If the dreams we made are made of fire
I would give a life just to live the dream again
If our hearts are hanging on a wire
Let's forget the world below and dance until the end

Let's dance
Our last dance
A rockin' romance
This ain't our last dance
Let's dance
Oh-oh-oh-ooh-ooh
Oh-woah-woah-ooh
Oh-oh-oh-ooh-ooh-ooh

My heart was born in neon lights
Floating in space like satellites
Looking for signs of life tonight
As we collide in black and white
Holdin' on beyond the night
For a shadow that feels right
Holdin' on beyond the night for you

If the dreams we made are made of fire
I would give a life just to live the dream again

Let's dance
Oh, last dance
A rockin' romance
This ain't our last dance
Let's dance
Oh-oh-oh-ooh-ooh
Oh-woah-woah-ooh
This ain't our last dance

Take a deeper breath before we touch
Running out of time, let's use it up
And hold me before the morning comes

Let's dance
Oh-oh
A rockin' romance
This ain't our last dance
Let's dance​

6 points. Catchy song, one of the better bops, but not the best. Hate the staging so far.

The technical problems are to be expected based on the ambition of the staging. The rehearsals are happening exactly to correct such issues and it sounds like there are already improvements from the first rehearsal. What I got is that the section that is shown in the snippet is the one that is most problematic.

I hope so. Sometimes I do not get EBU, I remember the time that they showed that disastrous vocal of Tamta, still not getting why they choose bad moments.

It might be that the section that is included in the snippet has been predetermined and if you fuck it up then everyone gets to see it. Similarly to the recaps on the actual shows where sometimes people fail to hit a big note and that part ends up being the one being replayed over and over.
Also the delegations are deliberately not choosing to show the strongest moments of the staging just yet. For instance it looks like Ireland chose to show the part where the graphics recede and is less impressive that what happens before.
I can't deny that some details in the current clip are comically cheap.

Honestly i thought this looks cute. But a bit juvenile as well. Hopefully the kids gonna stay awake during the semi and the final. Hihi.

This is winning staging :ROFLMAO:

Have to admit I was excited to see some of the effects. After seeing the rehearsal, I'm a bit underwhelmed. Even without the technical issues, it's not wow.

Having said that, the final full performance could and should look very different. Some reactions seem to absolutely love the final product, so let's wait and see.

Imo the staging is goals, it does feel like it was intended for a more upbeat song.

But either the staging or her outfit it should be imo, they don't go together :ROFLMAO:
I would personally ditch the outfit tbh, it makes her look so... how to say this without being rude. Mature I guess. I was expecting something more playful, but I love the glitter and sparkles at least, maybe different hair.

I'm really excited to see this performance in full, it will surely look better than the rehearsal snippet.

I really really hate the staging. I hate screen overlays and I really feel that, as far as possible, the people watching at home should see what the people in the arena see. I know there's a limited audience this year but I can't help feel how frustrated I'd be if I paid all that money to go to the contest and while everyone at home is seeing a great song I just see what looks like the behind the scenes footage from Avatar.

It's so lazy and unimaginative, it shows a lack of real creativity. The song should stand on its own without the performance, and even still, the performance should be able to work without having to draw pictures over it on a computer. There's no real effort put into this.

Damn, those green screen effects look absolutely dreadful as it stands now. Hopefully they will fix it. I find her outfits with cut outs fugly too. If they went with special effects they need to make it absolutely perfect.

They give us great memed though, lol.

I can't upvote this enough. While I actually like how it looks on tv, I feel like it's so unfair to people watching in Ahoy, for them the whole thing will look awkward at best. It would work better as a, say, music video. Not a live performance.
