Today is the sixth day of rehearsals in Turin and the first rehearsals of the BIG 5 countries are going to be held today!
Next up on stage for their first rehearsal is Germany and Malik Harris with the song “Rockstars“.
Who is Malik Harris?
German-American singer and rapper Malik has been writing songs on his guitar for over a decade. Harris comes from a very musical family, his grandfather was an opera singer, his grandmother a pianist, and his father plays several instruments and teaches cello.
The young star’s first singles, Say The Name (2018) and Welcome to the Rumble (2019), were hits on the German airplay chart and streaming platforms, which led to a solo tour in May 2019.
Malik has supported international acts including James Blunt, Alex Clare, Jeremy Loops, Tom Odell and LP.
This is really smart performance from Malik! He works the cameras really well and makes a real connection with the audience.
The staging is simple and stripped back, and the Eminem-style rap section has real intensity in contrast to the sections either side where it’s just Malik and his guitar. It’s a really confident and compelling performance and his vocal is great too – a nice chance of pace after a couple of roof-raising numbers.
