Today, seven participating countries of the 2022 Junior Eurovision Song Contest are having their second rehearsal. These are Albania, Ukraine, Malta, Italy, Serbia, Poland, North Macedonia and Portugal. The fifth up to complete their second rehearsal was Serbia’s Katarina Savić !
In today’s rehearsal, the attending Press had the opportunity to watch the full rehearsals from these participating countries at this year’s Junior Eurovision. Before we find out what happens in Serbia’s rehearsal today, you can find out how their first rehearsal went right here.
What happens during Katarina’s performance?
Katarins starts off the performance in a circular structure wearing white, with the stage lights surrounding the structure, whilst wearing a headset microphone. Katarina stays in the structure where her dance partner appears on stage. This continues on until the first bridge where a dress reveal shows Katarina wearing the same outfit but in Red, as his dance partner dances around the structure while Katarina plays the trombone. Towards the end of the song, Katarina and her dance partnet dance together where they end the song in the middle of the circular structure.
