They made an absolutely amazing performance, Alexandra nailed her high note with perfection, and the entire staging and setup and their fantastic new white and silver outfits were so perfect. The happiness that radiated from their faces, their smiles, their energy… it was heartwarming and overwhelming and a true joy to wittness.
