ITALY – Guest of Aunt Mara at Domenica IN, Mika spoke about his experience as host of the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 and in particular about his performance during the final on May 14th.
The Anglo-Franco-Lebanese singer revealed to the microphones of the broadcast that he took a bit of fear during the rehearsal of his performance. In fact, if at first the idea of being lifted from a platform 8 meters high seemed like a crazy idea, he then realized that maybe it was stupid.
“I was there, suspended 8 meters high on that platform, without a hook. At first, it seemed like a fantastic idea to stay in balance on that ‘flying’ piano, I immediately said yes, let’s do it, but then during rehearsals, I realized that it was stupid. While I was singing live, in front of 240 million people, I thought: ‘If I fall now I’ll have a bad end’.”
Then reviewing his performance, Mika revealed how adrenaline helps a lot in these cases and how thanks to it it would always be unleashed if it were like this every day:
“The adrenaline makes you do absurd things, seeing myself again I see another person. Thank God there is an abstraction because if I were that person every day, I would be unbearable, an unleashed madman.”
During the interview with Mara Venier, the singer thanked the creative director of Valentino who followed him with regard to his looks, namely Pierpaolo Piccoli:
“I know many designers, he is one of the few who has kept his origins. He lives in Nettuno, when you go to dinner with him there is all his family and all his childhood friends. He is a poetic genius.”
In conclusion, Mika revealed that she has both a boyfriend and a girlfriend, which is music. He then explained in poetic tones his bond with music by idealizing the piano as a lover.
