The Eurovision 2018 fever is kicking off today with the first day of the rehearsals at the Altice Arena. The next act to get onstage is Ari Olafsson, who is ready to fly Iceland’s flag in Lisbon, with the song Our choice.

Following Azerbaijan Aisel’s powerful pop track, it’s time we enjoyed the contest’s first ballad! Ari seems confident with the cameras within a retro scenery. During the song’s chorus, the background is turning from blue to red. The lead artist has been dressed in a bold white and red suit, together with a red shirt.
