The Slovenian representative in the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest, ManuElla, recorded a studio version of her entry Blue And Red. "No drastic changes will be made, just some changes in production," ManuElla said back then. The new version opens with the refrain "Allay!"
Blue And Red has been composed by ManuElla herself and Marjan Hvala. The lyrics has been written by Leon Oblak, who was also co-writer of the former Slovenian entry Narodnozabavni rock sang by Ansambel Žlindra and Kalamari in the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest.
Tonight, alongside with other participants of this year's Eurovision Song Contest, ManuElla will perform her song in Eurovision In Concert in Amsterdam. The singer will also visit the special Eurovision event Israel Calling in Tel Aviv.
ManuElla's stage preparations
In between the singer's apperance at different Eurovision parties and events, ManuElla is busy with preparations for her stage performance under the vigilant eye of the choreographer Anže Škube. "The focus is on me. We need to explode on stage, take advantage of the positive energy the song itself possesses," ManuElla revealed.
In her chat on Radio Slovenija, on the occasion of ManuElla's appearance in the Nočni obisk (Night visit) show, the singer also revealed that she will wear a white dress on stage in Stockholm. "The colours won't change, and there'll be no stripping," she added.
