Hurricane’s performance for Eurovision 2021 will not feature the 80s vibe from the music video for “Loco Loco”.
Hurricane has given their first hints as to what viewers can expect from their performance at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021. Speaking to Wiwibloggs, Sanja explained:
We’re not going to mirror anything from the video. There’s going to be new costumes, new scenery — it won’t be the 80s vibe that we portrayed in the video.
In addition, they confirmed that it will just be the three of them on stage in Rotterdam, in contrast to the music video which featured a dancer. Overall they say that “It’s gonna be really crazy on stage”.
