ManuElla gave an outstanding performance of Red And Blue at her second rehearsal for Slovenia in Stockholm today. She looked stunning in her white dress and she was accompanied by Jannik Baltzer Hattel, an acrobat from Denmark.

ManuElla said at her press conference she is influenced by the country rock sound and this is the style that will be on her forthcoming album. She is hoping her Eurovision show will give her new followers around the world including USA, who will broadcast the show this year.
