Lea is a proud mother of two girls, and has been building her solo career alongside that role.
Hvala, ne! was written by Lea who also produced the song with Tomy DeClerque.
The first run through of Hvala, ne! did not disappoint. The song opens with powerful dance moves by four dancers, eventually revealing Lea behind them as the lyrics begin. Backed by the dancers dressed in glitter body suits, Lea sings the energetic song with intermittent synchronized choreographed moves. Lea is wearing a similar body suit to her dancers, with the addition of an off-the-shoulder mesh cover-up and the signature pink side braid we've come to expect. Making full use of the outer circle of the stage, Lea will bring the energy right to the crowd.
Lea's act features an unexpected turn, which we gladly keep as a surprise until the second Semi-Final on Thursday, 10th of May.
When Eurovision.tv caught up with Lea after her rehearsal, she told us: "I liked the big stage, but I missed the people inside. I will be very happy when people are in front of me!"
Regarding the meaning behind her song, Lea shared that the song is about "what I say hvala ne, or 'no thanks', to. I prefer to say no to all that is fake, and the masks that we wear on our faces. I am trying to take my mask off and show the real Lea."
