Tomorrow, co-written by Boris Cezek and Dean Muscat with lead vocals provided by Gianluca had a first go on the stage of this years’ Eurovision Song Contest as rehearsals from the second semi-final commenced. The afternoon has somewhat been plagued by a series of sound issues that have effected rehearsals of Finland, Malta and Bulgaria when it comes to the first run but all of the technicalities are fixed as countries head into the rest of their allocated time. Following Azerbaijan and Finland was always set to be a challenge for our entry but the sheer excitement of the actual performance continues to ascertain positivity amongst the international community.
The lyric video created for the international and local public to sing-a-long to the song in preparation for the Eurovision Song Contest is being used as a backdrop, an effective idea as the audience could grasp the concept and sing-a-long. The lighting used on stage is relatively light featuring a mixture of orange, blue and green as opposed to the darker colours being used by other countries. For most of the performance the staging is kept very similar to the national final performance with Gianluca making use of the catwalk towards the end of the song before turning back to the main stage where he joins all the rest of the team on a park bench, as is reminiscent of the music video. The vocals following the first run got better as Gianluca grew in confidence whilst noting that is saving his voice for the actual performance next week as the fourth run came to an end.
