Luca Hänni's first rehearsal has taken place in Tel Aviv. Flanked by 4 dancers, it is now clear what Switzerland has in store for their performance of 'She Got Me'. A new contemporary look, energetic dance moves and clear vocals characterise the look of the entry on stage in Israel.
Luca Hänni will take to the stage 4th in the second Semi-Final on Thursday 16 May at Expo Tel Aviv in Israel.
24 year old Luca Hänni is already a superstar beyond Swiss borders. He burst onto the European music scene at the age of 17 when he won 'Deutschland sucht den Superstar', Germany’s version of Pop Idol, becoming the youngest ever winner, and first non-German to take the prize. His first single hit number one in the charts in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, and was followed by sold-out concert tours, festivals and TV shows. He's also won Germany's 'Dance Dance Dance' tv show.
What happens on stage?
The clean vibe of the performance contrasts with the music video's retro style, the latino dancing is replaced with a modern urban street routine and his classic suit has made way for a modern outfit. Luca is wearing a sleeveless black t-shirt with white shoulder trim and black trousers and boots with white trims. His 4 backing dancers are wearing red. The girls have matching mini-skirts, crop-tops and jackets and red boots, whilst the 2 men are dressed in red sleeveless suits with red t-shirts under the jackets.
Luca starts the performance alone on stage before his dancers join him before the chorus. They work as a tight dance unit with tight choreography. There's a solo close-up during the bridge where Luca sings "She go so slow" where the video in slow-motion. This leads into a short solo dance routine before the 4 dancers rejoin Luca and pyro blasts around them.
