Today, eight participating countries of the 2022 Junior Eurovision Song Contest were scheduled to have their second rehearsal. These are The Netherlands, Ireland, Kazakhstan, Spain, France, Georgia, and Armenia. The United Kingdom missed their second rehearsal due to illness. Third to complete their second rehearsal was Kazakhstan’s David Charlin!
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 Kazakhstan’s rehearsal today, you can find out how their first rehearsal went right here.
What happens during David’s performance?
We see David standingin the middle of the stage alone, with a cityscape view on the LED background and dry ice on the floor, which then quickly shifts to the forest as soon as the chorus starts. As we get to the second prt of the song, David continues to be in the middle of the stage. However, the background changes to a naturistic background which shows two hands, which shows a waterfall and a tree, with powerplants showing smoke in the background.
Towards the final lines of the song, the whole LED background changes to a more naturistic background, with the floor LED’s being shown and the LED screen showing a green field with David finishing the perfromance off where he started.
*We will add a preview of the performance once it has been made available*
