Eurovision 2022: Latvia’s First Rehearsal!

The first day of rehearsals continues with the Latvian group Citi Zēni entering the stage of PalaOlimpico for their first technical rehearsal with the song “Eat Your Salad“.

Everything about Citi Zēni:

Citi Zēni are an award-winning, 6-piece band from Riga, who were formed at the beginning of 2020. The self-proclaimed ‘Princes of Rap’ and ‘Divas of 21st Century Pop’ are just as well known for their energetic performances and eccentric style as they are for their cheeky lyrics. The band released their debut album, Suņi Iziet Ielās, to much critical acclaim and have already started work on the follow-up album, planning to release a second single from it shortly after the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest has taken place.

The eco-friendly sextet is made up of Jānis on vocals, Dagnis who contributes vocals and saxophone, Reinis on keyboards, Krišjānis playing guitar, Roberts giving us bass, and Toms on drums.

The Rehearsal

Citi Zēni are on stage in their brightly coloured suits – like kids TV presenters, but make it fashion. Even the guy in yellow on drums looks stylish, and that’s a tough look to carry off. It’s also our first on-stage band of the competition (but definitely not the last) – it served Måneskin well last year, but that was a slightly different vibe.They graphic backdrop is heavily fruit-based with a lot of colours, and we are in no doubt that being green is both hot and cool!

A few sound issues for Latvia too on their second run, but that’s what first rehearsals are for. Sound aside, as a visual spectacle this performance looks amazing on a big stage.

Below you can watch a small clip from Latvia’s first rehearsal from Tik Tok:

This year, she is competing in her country’s national final with the ballad “I’m Letting You Go”.
