Albania’s first rehearsal at Junior Eurovision 2021

The third of this morning’s first rehearsals comes from Albania, and Anna Gjebrea, for her performance of Stand By You, has thrown the kitchen sink at this one. And the entire classroom. And an Amazon warehouse.

Yes, this one is involved. There’s some carboard box-ography at the start (not to give too much away, but it is in-keeping with the song’s lyrics and music video’s themes), and Anna is joined by the full four dancers.

According to JESC’s website, the artwork in the projections was based on the works of Keith Haring, which is a fairly highbrow reference for Junior Eurovision, but certainly one that will be appreciated by kids, due to its simple design, and Eurofans, especially the ones who know about his life.

The outfits also incorporate this style: cricket / school-style whites with flairs that look as though they were sketched on by Haring himself.

It’s also our first instance of headset mic this year, probably so that Anna could show off the Albanian eagle brooch she’s sporting on her collar. Nothing like a bit of national pride on a Eurovision stage. Fair to say this is one to watch.
