Despite not being European and is 100% Asian, this is my 3rd (not consecutive) year to be hooked by Eurovision. First was being so engrossed and excited for the performance by Dani Im in 2016 and having to fall in love with the romantic winning song 2 years ago from Portugal.
This year was of a totally different reason. I was so entranced and captivated by the performance and staging of the song entry from Australia. Here’s why and let the video speaks for itself!
The staging I guess has never been done in the past Eurovision contests. And it takes lungs and a diaphragm of steel to sing precise high operatic notes while standing, swinging and swaying on a 6 meter pole. That woman slayed it!
Zero Gravity performed by Kate Miller-Heicke genuinely feels what people would consider a total enjoyment which for me is another Eurovision appeal. Too sad this entry did not win (maybe because Europe is not ready and has not accepted yet that a Eurovision show will be held outside Europe) but Australia’s 2019 entry has definitely blown me away! She kicks ass up there on the pole!
