Outfits:

O. Torvald are dressed in dark shades of smart casual wear, which is a very different look to their national final performance. The lead singers wears black trousers and a white shirt flecked with black marks. We don’t yet know if these are their final stage outfits.

Apparently the giant head on stage is not Apollo (Switzerland) but belongs to Ukraine. The digital clocks concept from the national selection was probably abandoned in favour of something more simple.

The stage is coloured in blue, light blue and white and the statue stands in the middle of the stage, with the members of O.Torvald around it. The backdrop resembles some city and mountains and at the end of the song the head connects to a body shown on the floor with a sunrise over the mountains far away.

Vocally the song is performed extremely fine and the camera work does not seem to have any special problems.
