Eurovision 2022: Czech Republic’s Second Rehearsal

The last country to get on stage for their second rehearsal, with delay due to problems during the Swedish rehearsal, is the Czech Republic. Despite their effort, the We Are Domi band, didn’t manage to make an impact on the betting odds. In their first rehearsal, they were dressed in black and gold colours and the stadium was full of lights, giving the impression of being in a big night club.

The Second Rehearsal

The performance starts with a close-up on the DJ’s systems and then on the face of the lead singer, who’s on the floor. On the second round, the close-up is directly on the lead singer. The band wears the same out-fit as in the first rehearsal. Ancient Greek statues appear on the LED screens, that at some point break and the stage floods with flickering lights, giving the impression of a night club. The guitarist plays his custom-made cello-string guitar on stage with a bow.

Vocally the singer was excellent and the whole rehearsal completed with zero problems.

Watch the exclusive clip of the second rehearsal through the cameras:
