Since Monday, the Eurovision stage has become alive, almost all singers have been using it already, beside of the Big 5 countries and Sweden. As previously reported the stage design is very modern and looks like a mouth or a spaceship with a big aperture. The two towers in front of the building do not have the previously announced video wall, but this is only possible on the main background.
Every single entry has different approaches and all the needs and wishes of the singers and delegations which may possible will be done. But not every wish can be turned into reality. The Georgian delegation wanted to have a real waterfall on stage, which has been denied by the producers.
The stage is a lot smaller than in previous years and there are lamps hanging from the ceiling above the audience, which can be illuminated in the desired colour; this has also been used in Kiev 2005, but not with the change of colours. Many performances will use the long illuminated bars, coming from the ceiling as well. There is pyrotechnics, flamethrowers and wind-mashines as always.
This is definitely a cool stage which is more compact, like last year in Baku. Everything will be more concentrated and there won’t be too many distracting elements. Will show more photos when it’s officially allowed to do photos from the stage.
