When we found out about the dates for the semi final and final show in Moldova we booked a 8 days trip to a country where we had never been and didn't know anything about, but a place that would change our lives and make way to our dreams! Funny that we had to go all the way to Moldova to achieve this, but it was a wonderful experience that we will remember for the rest our our lives. They required live backing vocalists on stage and we didn't hesitate to take on this challenge and to be able to perform in a Eurovision show with our own song. We were probably nervous for a couple of months and tried to prepare everything in detail. On stage we decided to wear black dresses with sequin and high heal black boots.
Tasty cuisine and entertainment at our favourite Chisinau restaurant.
Rehearsals and performance at the local Karaoke club.
It was a huge experience and a great memory to enter the stage in the studio, to hear our song live, to discuss the backdrop and stage performance and sing the backing vocals together with Inaya.
The team backstage at TRM, Moldova TV station.
On stage at dress rehearsals.
We did our own makeup and hair at the hotel that were situated a bit too far from the city, but close enough to take a taxi to all the rehearsals at the TV station. There was a big contrast to take place in this magnificent and expensive TV show and to see the standards of the citizens of Moldova on the streets. A good experience in our opinion for people to see another world outside the western standards that we would recommend everyone to do. We would probably never have gone here if it wasn't for Eurovision.
When we were heading back to Sweden Spring started to arrive in Chisinau and the sun was shining after a rather cold and cloudy week. We didn't reach the final and had to stay a few more days than planned, but we were very happy and content to take part with our first song as composers and backing vocalists in the semi final of Eurovision in Moldova!
