That's probably the reason why she is not wearing the dress, which created so much fuss for her second rehearsal on the Eurovision stage, together with her four backing vocalists. Nevertheless, the Dutch musical sensation had a more casual outfit today: a long black dress, a leather black jacket, which she also replaced with a red one during the rehearsal and a black veil she had on for her first rehearsal.
I'm glad to be here", Trijntje underlined. "I'm aware of my responsibility, but I don't feel any pressure. We all have an equal opportunity to shine".
Lights and all the LED elements in the background have had a black & white set up during today’s rehearsal, at least in the beginning of Trijntje’s performance of Walk Along. As soon as a chorus of the song starts, a shadow figure 'walking away' can be seen on the white screen. After that, the stage turns into a more colourful surrounding: blue, red and green lights follow the performance.
Trintje: I didn't want to tease the press
"I have five more options. So, it's not decided what I will be wearing on the 19th of May yet. I didn't want to tease the press. But it's ok, I like it", Trijntje explained during her press conference at the Wiender Stadthalle.
"We are here to practice, which means we are still working on the visual concept of my performance", she added.
The Eurovision Song Concept is completely different in comparing to other events, concerts and competition, Trijntje Oostehuis had till now. "It's not really strange to have all the rules, it's just different. I want to make everything perfect and the clock is ticking", the Dutch contestant said.
About the Eurovision, she heard a lot from Edsilla Rombley, who represented The Netherlands twice (1998 and 2007). "She told me to enjoy myself. We support each other a lot and I was really proud when she took part in Eurovision for the second time and I think she did great. (...) She was right, it's a lot of fun to be here."
