May 14 / First Rehearsal Switzerland: time to shine our ears
Mélanie René is using her dress to play with during her performance which objectively has one of the best artwork in the LED monitors this year. Not sure about the vocal stability of the singer and not sure if this game with the sparkling outfit will work for them but somehow it makes you wanna see it again (that’s what still makes me undecided). Excellent stage presentation and graphics though.
