United Kingdom – Electro Velvet will don state of the art LED costumes that illuminate in time to their song ‘Still in love with you’ for their performance in the Grand Final of the competition on Saturday 23rd May.
Eurovision Song Contest rules state that a maximum of six people can be permitted on stage during each song therefore Alex Larke and Bianca Nicholas of Electro Velvet will be joined on stage by backing artists Ryan Heseltine, Chris Arias, Scarlette Douglas and Sophie Jones who will also light up the stage in their own cutting edge LED outfits. All of the costumes will incorporate brand new technology which has never been seen before.
The eye catching outfits will complement the circular main stage which has been erected for the competition at the Wiener Stadthalle in Vienna, Austria – host city of the 2015 contest. The stage itself contains a 30 metre wide LED screen and 300 metres of LED strips, making it one of the most visually stunning stages in Eurovision history.
Electro Velvet said:
“The whole Eurovision experience has been illuminating for us and we can’t wait to literally light up on stage in front of the entire world – it’s going to be electric!”
Guy Freeman, Head of Delegation for the UK says:
“The creative team behind the concept have been working exceptionally hard to ensure that the United Kingdom has a visually stunning and memorable performance on the night of the grand final and we can’t wait for the world to see it.”
The Eurovision Song Contest Grand Final will be broadcast in the UK on BBC One and BBC Radio 2 from 8pm (GMT+1) on Saturday 23rd May.
The Eurovision Times had a chat to Alex and Bianca on the red carpet last night, and will be attending an invite only party at the British Embassy this evening.
