Next up with their first rehearsal is Cornelia Jakobs of Sweden with ‘Hold Me Closer’. The staging is, by now, quite familiar as it is the same concept as from Melodifestivalen, with the rotating projection disc structure with green and red lighting. Cornelia also has the same outfit and is again barefoot on stage. It looks like everything worked really well for her.
In her press conference, Cornelia shared how she fell during the performance and dropped her monitor, but all was ok despite that and she really enjoyed the chance to take to the stage after so long.
You can see the TikTok clip of the rehearsal below:
Cornelia caught up with host broadcaster RAI after her rehearsal to share her thoughts:
