Renowned motivational speaker and breakdancer Redo (Redouan Aiit Chit) will perform as the opening act in the second semi-final.
‘Redo was born with several physical malformations. He has a shorter right arm, which lacks an elbow joint, and has a total of 5 fingers – 2 on the right hand and 3 on the left. He is also missing his right hip, has a shorter right leg, and walks with the aid of a prosthetic. Despite these complications, Redo never allowed his situation to negatively affect his life.’Extract from Eurovision.tv
