Eurovision 2022: Romania’s Second Rehearsal!

The second section of the 7th day of rehearsals in Turin starts with Romania. WRS’ first rehearsal didn’t seem to have much difference from the national selection’s one. He wore sparkly trousers and a red frilly shirt that comes off at the end to reveal a silver sequinned vest. The staging featured great dancing, fabulous costumes and lots of different musical influences. WRS enters now on stage for his second rehearsal.

The Second Rehearsal

Romania’s second rehearsal starts with shots on dancers doing some moves. Then, WRS appears with the dancers doing choreography similar to the national selection’s one. Red is the main colour of the performance. There is good use of the LED floor screen with WRS and his dancers doing some cool rotating moves. Also the lyrics of the chorus are displayed on the backround and the LED floor. In the bridge, WRS changes outfit from red to a black with silver marks. Generallly, the choreography is very good, not much different to what we have seen from WRS so far. He is a performer, but the staging lacks some big moments.
