Senhit starting alone with very interesting outfit of black and golden elbem with religious females images. The lightening in the beginning is blue. As song progresses she removed the head peace and she was wearing a black fur outfit just like in a show from Poland. The dancers are dressed in skin toned pink and with masks that cover their face and red shoes. There is stand in rapper for Flo Rida who raps/sings with her. In the second half we heard the back vocalists joined Senhit singing it. The LED background is colourful with pink yellow and more vibrant colours. During whole performance there was turning callipers where Senhit was standing at some point. At certain point it shows some small clips from musical video. They had pyro as well which was fire ball pyro at some points and at then at end it was big fireworks explosion. Vocally she was good but not executed perfectly but its reminder its just first rehearsal.

Later on we found out stand in rapper was Don Jiggy (you can fallow him on Instagram as well)
