Florian Wieder has revealed in an interview with Eurovision.de, that the main element of S!sters performance at the German selection will likely be dropped for Tel Aviv. The duo performed on a rotating box throughout the song “Sisters” at the selection in Berlin, the box according to Mr Wieder, will most likely not be seen at Eurovision. He explained that:
“(It) was a bit confusing, for everyone, for the spectators as well as for the artists themselves. In Tel Aviv, a lot is going on more focused on the message of her song, just at the beginning. Their voices, which fit so perfectly together, speak for themselves. For us, it’s about putting the ideas that your song transports into the staging.” (www.eurovoix.com)
