From what we have seen in the rehearsal pictures, we see Lara, Irina and Jovan being joined by two backing dancers, with the performance looking likely to tell a story and that everyone on stage will likely be interactive throughout the performance. We also see that the performance also makes use of the stage lights and LED screens, specifically the ones where social media notifications appear and the hashtag #LoveMyGirlfriend being used.
