Eurovision 2023: Serbia’s First Rehearsal!

Next up on stage is Luke Black for his 1st rehearsal on the stage of Liverpool. Luke Black represents Serbia at the 67th Eurovision Song Contest, after winning Pesma za Evroviziju ’23 with his song “Samo mi se spava”!

Who is Luke Black?

Luka Ivanović, known professionally as Luke Black, is a Serbian singer and songwriter. He was born in Čačak on 18 May 1992, started writing lyrics at the age of 12 and later started to compose and produce his own songs. He became the first Serbian artist to be signed under Universal Music Group, through which he released his debut EP Thornes in February 2015. It was followed by Neoslavic (2018) and F23.8 (2023). He is currently based in London.

The rehearsal

Luke gets to the stage to perform his indie/techno number that includes both English and Serbian lyrics. Staging-wise, Luke has brought the huge prop from the Serbian National Finals, that looks like a bed/oyster shell, along with four masked dancers trailing long hoses – we’ve heard a rumour that smoke is going to come out of those, so we’ll update when we see the pyro rehearsal. The pulsing bass and video game graphics and the dark, surreal and hypnotic vibe create a memorable performance.

For the final rehearsal, Luke unleashes smoke from the backpacks worn by their backing dancers, just for the final chorus. It makes the whole thing feel even more apocalyptic. It’s our first pyro of the day.
