Estonia’s Eurovision song is called La Forza. Nechayeva wrote the lyrics alongside fellow soprano Ksenia Kuchukova. The music was composed by Mihkel Mattisen and Timo Vendt. She was one of the acts who made it through the first semi-final to compete in the Grand Final this Saturday.
How was Elina Nechayeva’s dress created?
Elina is performing in a special projection dress – first glimpsed at Estonia’s national final – which will visualise stunning patterns and colours on a grand scale throughout her song. “Elina’s performance will be something very special,” teased video artist Alyona Movko.
But the ambitious costume very nearly failed to make it to the Eurovision stage – the crippling cost led Elina’s team to appeal to the Estonian government for funding. An option B was prepared, but it’s thanks to sponsorship deals that the eye-catching design has got the go ahead.
