May 11 / First Rehearsal Estonia: a song to be in love or to sleep with
Fotis Konstantopoulos (Greece)
Stig is wearing a full dark blue suit, Elina is wearing a black dress and the lights make a big shadow on the floor for them. The performance is as we knew it from their national final, with dark pale colours all over the stage.
Elina & Stig
“Somehow we got the room number 13 not sure if it’s good or bad luck… We are waiting for our time to go on stage and we take it slow, chill, trying to figure out what’s going on it’s our first time in the area.”
Elina is a temperamental small town girl who enjoys city life and would like to travel to Africa to pet giraffes. The even-tempered Stig would rather go to Antarctica. Unlike Elina, he grew up in the challenging side of the city. But today he would rather live in the countryside, where he can write music in peace. Three years ago Estonia’s hottest songwriter Stig stumbled across a young girl’s video on YouTube, where she was singing Christina Aguilera’s song Cruz. It was Elina. “I was completely charmed by her musicality”, remarks Stig.
