Dami Im uses both the modern technology of images projected onto the screens, along with a more traditional Eurovision element with her interpretation of the Australian entry Sound Of Silence.

 

At the start of the song, Dami is seen lying across the top of a high podium in the middle of the stage in a very futuristic setting. There are transparent screens either side of her, as well as in front of her.

 

Initially the screens show images that suggest a nighttime city skyline, before we see floating images of people's heads moving around the screens and seemingly around Dami, as she becomes immersed in a futuristic world of social media and as her arm moves around it appears she is manipulating the images around her.

 

Around half way through the song, the screens are whisked away, and Dami is helped off the box by two stagehands, who also remove the final screen as the steady-cam revolves around Dami, so they can exit the stage unseen by the camera.

We then get a better look at her long elegant white dress, which was revealed last night as a custom-designed piece by Sydney-based designer Steven Khalil which is open at the front, and has crystals across the top half of her dress and over her right shoulder.

The final part of the song sees Dami take centre stage. with mainly blue light effects in the background, and also uses one of the most familiar Eurovision elements - the wind machine!

 

The first run-through wowed the press in Stockholm, with Dami's odds now being slashed to 8/1 by bookmakers, pushing her up to third favourite to win in the current betting odds.
