Vasil: “A Mirror Is Your Best Friend And Your Worst Enemy!”

By Cain Cooper

“A mirror is literally your best friend and your worst enemy,”

Vasil says of his costume reveal in his stage performance for ‘Here I Stand’.

“That is the basis of what we want to talk about, that theme of turning darkness into light.”

No stranger to comparison and controversy, North Macedonian contestant Vasil undertook a transformative sequence during his Semi-Final 1 rehearsals on the Eurovision stage. In our interview with Cain, Vasil explains his stage theming, and ‘opens up’ about having a song that stands true to his beliefs and position as a ‘voice for the voiceless’. We also talk about how his severe back bending could lead to a killer death-drop!

Vasil will perform in Semi-Final 1 on the 18th May CET.
