09. Smooth retro vibe: Lithuiania maximises potential

by Richard West-Soley 38 views

Lithuania perfects its retro, bluesy style on stage today at the second rehearsal for Julija and 4Fun.

At today's rehearsal, subtle adjustments have been made to the lighting, adding the finishing touches to a very gentle, attractive presentation. At the beginning of the song, Julija is in the shadows with the rest of the band before the low light picks her out of the scene. The striking silhouettes of the band are now set on a cool pale blue background.

Cool retro vibe
Julija, in a retro leather look which complements the cool 1960s vibe of the entry, gives a relaxed and dreamy performance on her stool. At the end of the song, the lighting fades out on the background, but also on Julija, leaving only her guitar gently lit in the middle of the stage – a beautiful effect on television. Camera angles alternate between gliding shots of Julija and still tableaux of the silhouetted band, in three minutes of pure Eurovision chill-out.
