"I was a little confused when I received the call from Georgian TV" "This is kind of a 'number one performance' as we have never done anything like this before. Our usual performances are just: we rehearse, and then we hang out in the dressing room. Just like now. We don't have any special stuff we do before a gig", Nika Kocharov explains the band's preparations before their first rehearsal in the Globe Arena. Midnight Gold is a pretty alternative track compared to most Eurovision Song Contest entries. "I watched Eurovision a couple of times. Then suddenly I received a call from Georgian TV. To be honest I was a little confused because I know that we don't make that type of music that is usually at the contest. But then I thought - why not? Music is music. So here we are!" "We don't have any tricks - like we don't do any somersaults on stage. Just a performance", Nika stated on their stage act.
