Georgia are giving us all the feels with their first rehearsal.
It’s dark, it’s moody, it’s haunting, it’s “Echo” from Iru on the Eurovision 2023 stage.
@eurovision This thing is known…Iru’s first rehearsal was breathtaking 🇬🇪 #Eurovision2023 #Eurovision @IruKhechanovi ♬ original sound - Eurovision
Iru is alone on stage, wearing a beautiful long, flowing white dress, and some spectacular arm jewellery, whilst stood atop a small circular platform, which she moves around on very effectively.
We see dark, stormy and moody colours and graphics filling the backdrop as smoke surrounds Iru on the stage floor. The performance is very haunting, and we can see images of black hands surrounding the back drop (think Iceland 2016).
“Echo” may be a very vocally demanding song, but that doesn’t stop Iru as she blows us all away with her very strong vocals.
Stay tuned for more first rehearsals from San Marino, Austria, Albania, Lithuania and Australia.
