Because Mariah was trying to find a better wig, the divas were exceptionally late and the Queen decided to put them at the end of the show instead of at the beginning - to make sure that her guests don't have to wait for too long. "I can't say I blame Mariah. Next time I go out of the country, I'm going to make sure to pack some extra wigs for these type of emergencies." The two were moved from being the opening act to being the closing act.
The play that the guests were about to witness was no usual show, though. Instead, they were witnessing nationalist and imperialist propaganda carefully disguised as top-notch entertainment inspired by Red Croatia's rich history.
The show portrayed the origin story of Nami (one of Red Croatia's founding tribes), explaining how they were forced to leave Sahara in search of a new home (Red Croatia) due to the evil Sahrawi that were far too strong for them to take on in war. However, Red Croatia was too smart to make this show a boring history lesson. They knew that no one would care if that was the case. Because of that, they focused on one specific, extremely likeable Nami family and how this affected them on a personal level.
A million Nami being forced out of their homeland is a statistic.
A family of four that the audience was extremely familiar with being forced out of Sahara is a tearjerking tragedy.
The show's main characters were a hard-working father who had a high ranking position in his tribe, a stern and serene mother, an ambitious son who wanted to make a name for himself and a bratty, self-absorbed daughter that would go on to become an independent and strong woman over the course of the story.
The play also featured authentic replicas of Nami costumes found in Sahara, but those most revealing and hyper-sexual were chosen to be worn by the actors. Every actor, male and female, was partaking in tasteful nudity. Once again, the Rechroatians proved that they knew how to make something as boring as national costumes exciting and memorable.
The show ended in the Nami family and other tribesmen making it to the promised land, land that would evolve to become Red Croatia. At this point, just about everyone was extremely impressed with the production and felt inspired by the Nami family's journey. The play was met with a nine minute standing ovation and incredible enthusiasm from high ranking politicians and common men alike.
Red Croatia did it again.
Before people got a chance to sit down after giving the standing ovation, Mariah and Whitney made it to the stage and were met with extreme enthusiasm before they even sang a note. They performed their rendition of When You Believe, which surprisingly perfectly fit with the theme of the play. The two made sure to not engage in any distracting vocal acrobatics to avoid accusations of competition between the two and instead focused on giving an emotionally touching performance, which is exactly what they did. They were incredible, even by their own standards.
Now that's entertainment.
