Christer Björkman, the man responsible for the stage show for Sanna in Copenhagen, has revealed some details on what viewers can expect of the Swedish performance in May.
When Sanna Nielsen takes the stage in the first semi-final on the 6 May to perform her power ballad, Undo, the performance will be both close and beautiful, but also explosive, according to Björkman.
Sanna will wear a dress, foregoing the suit she wore in the Melodifestivalen performances. It should also be at an international level, it’ll be luxurious and she will be perceived for who she is – an adult, but young star, Björkman said in his interview with SVT.
Because of stage regulations in Copenhagen, the hanging crystals will also be gone, but the central disco ball that was used to light up the stage near the end of her previous performances will be used, along with a larger, more powerful light ring that defined the Undo performance throughout Melodifestivalen.
The most interesting addition to the stage performance will be the platform that Sanna uses during the performance. It will be an octagonal shape, sparkle when lit, and give the sense that the platform is floating.
Like Loreen’s snow-filled performance at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2012, Christer Björkman wants to create an image of Sanna that sticks in viewers’ minds: We have important images that people remember. There are primarily two iconic images; when you see the cage open up and also when all the rays hit the disco ball and creates a glimmer in her world.
Sanna will perform in the first semi-final at the Eurovision Song Contest on the 6 May.
