Leonora has revealed that the giant chair from Dansk Melodi Grand Prix will remain for her performance at Eurovision 2019.
Speaking to Eurovoix, Leonora has confirmed that the giant chair which featured in her performance at the Danish selection will stay for Eurovision. The chair which was a stand out moment from the selection season, is a visual metaphor for the message of the song Leonora will be performing “Love is Forever”.
Leonora explained in an interview which will be published on April 18 that:
It perfectly visualizes what I want to communicate through the song: That we have to elevate ourselves above all the useless quarrels and conflicts of everyday life – and instead focus on how love is a universal thing that connects us all. To me, the chair helps convey very powerful imagery.
Denmark is not the only country that will be bringing furniture to the Eurovision stage in Tel Aviv. The Romanian delegation confirmed that the arm chair from Ester Peony’s performance in their national selection will also be kept for Eurovision.
Who is Leonora?
20-year-old Leonora will be representing Denmark at the Eurovision Song Contest. Leonora is a person with many talents, she is a triple Danish Championship title holder in figure skating, and she has participated in both the Junior World Championship and Nordic Championship.
Outside the world of sport, she decided at the age of 15 to focus on music instead, playing guitar and writing her own songs. She was then approached by Lise Cabble to perform “Love is Forever” and won the Danish selection.
Denmark debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1957 alongside Austria and the United Kingdom.
