Today rehearsals for the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 are continuing. Countries rehearsing on Day 4 include Ireland, North Macedonia, Estonia, Romania, Poland , Montenegro, Belgium, Sweden and Czech Republic. Last to rehearse today was the Czech Republic’s We Are Domi.
We Are Domi’s first rehearsal
The last act to take to the Eurovision 2022 stage at the Pala Alpitour in Turin was the Czech Republic’s We Are Domi. They will sing the song “Lights Off” at Eurovision 2022 after they were selected to represent the Czech Republic earlier this year.
Following We Are Domi’s first rehearsal a clip of their rehearsal was posted on TikTok. The clip showed them before and after she took to the Eurovision stage for the first time. The clip also gave us some insight into how well their rehearsal went.
What did we learn about We Are Domi’s staging?
Closing the second semi-final, Czechia are going all out with their performance. Despite being called ‘Lights Off’, We Are Domi are using practically every light possible in their staging, which will easily create a big finish to proceedings on May 12th. Dominika, Benjamin and Casper are also incredibly present onstage with their instruments, including Casper’s custom-made bow guitar. What a way to end the show!
What we thought about Czechia’s first rehearsal
Following the release of the rehearsal clip, Rosie shared her initial thoughts and reaction to We Are Domi’s first rehearsal.
