Eurovision 2023: Denmark’s First Rehearsal!

The first act from Semi-Final 2 to go up in the stage for it’s First Rehearsal is Reiley, representing Denmark, with the pop song “Breaking My Heart”.

Who is Reiley?

 Rani Petersen is known in the music industry as Reiley, is the first person from the Faroe Islands to participate in Eurovision Song Contest. Reiley is twenty-five years old singer and he became known as a social media influencer on TikTok in the early 2019, with nearly 11 million followers.

Since then, Reiley is posting on social media hundreds of covers that many of these became viral across all the internet. On February, he participated on the Danish National Selection Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2023 and won the competition making history in the Eurovision books.

The Rehearsal

Unfortunately this year, accredited journalists don’t get the chance to watch the first and second rehearsals, so we only get the information and content that the organizers officially release to the public.

Reiley’s set is different from the national final. He has a really clever triangle pronged revolving structure with each turn presents a room in a different colour as he moves through the doorwaysmaking good use of the LED floor and the projected graphics. Reiley has visuals that are making hearts and emojis from clouds. The whole performance feels like a a dreamlike quality.
