There is still a week and a half to the Danish Eurovision Song Contest-hope in the midst of the fire and fight for the red and white colors.
But the 20-year-old singer is already in full swing with rehearsals ahead of his performance with 'Love Is Forever', as the Danish bid on a vindersang of the year called.
The Danish Eurovision delegation with Leonora Jepsen in the lead landed Sunday in the host city Tel Aviv, and on Monday afternoon she stood for the first time on the big Eurovision stage.
- It went really well. We have made some small changes, but it's gonna be fine. There is, of course, a little trifles, we should have adjusted, but overall I think it went really, really well, " says Leonora Jepsen, and continues:
- We are just arrived last night, so now I just find myself edit down here. But I'm basically very safe right now, for it has been a good first try.
As at the Danish Melodi Grand Prix has Leonora Jepsen a gigantic chair on the stage. It is not the same as in Denmark, but produced a new one of its kind in Israel.
DR's underholdningschef Jan Lagermand Lundme says.
- The change that we have made in the number, where both the dancers and the choir is sitting on the chair with Leonora, it works really well. It really warms my heart, when you see the five sit on the chair and the beam.
