todays rehearsals are round up of second rehearsals of second half semi 2


Georgia: good vocals again, some changes to staging, more lavalamp effect with visual lyrics of ''my love'' in english and georgian

Albania: huge staging changes, they elevated the staging more compared to 1st rehearsal, she held back on vocals this time around

Portugal: stunning stunning vocal performance, staging feels like a ''michael schulte germany 2018'' moment, is definitely the surprise of this year, very lovely charming ballad with soulful, jazzy vocals

Bulgaria: going to be a visual magic moment this one, song wise if you like taylor swift's current albums folklore, evermore you'll enjoy this too loads, others compare to billie eilish but i compare this more to that from taylor


also usage of real sand pouring down from ceiling, and a huge rock where she is standing on

also Victoria goes through lots of emotions currently as well


her dad whom she is really close with, always been a hard working guy, he had been diagnosed with ALS


so performing this song ''growing up is getting old'' gives that even more of an emotional impact

Finland: great solid rock song, good simplistic rock concert vibe staging

Latvia: beautiful backdrop in gold, very nice quirky green outfits, Samanta is a true slayage queen, downpart her vocals aren't as clean at all times

Switzerland: quite a disaster staging wise and cringey dancing/hand movements lol a favourite?


now only denmark left whose second rehearsal clip needs to be uploaded

we're getting a announcement coming up this evening on eurovision.tv

the way they teased it so mysteriously, some news



i think of Ilse DeLange being confirmed for a role of some sort in the show, since i've followed the news regarding her last few days now

Rotterdam expects 1 million people to visit the online village


we got a 3D world of rotterdam, sightseeing some of highlight places such as Euromast, Markthal, cube homes, and of course ahoy itself


this online village will remain open until May 23rd

this particular person only tested positive today upon arrival, for routine test and the whole group out of precautionary measure went immediately back into isolation

rest of delegation will be separated from this member, and will undergo a PCR test as a precautionary measure as well

so for semi 2, we have to hope Rafal tests negative then

apparently Poland will be back at rehearsals on wednesday


feels quite shady this now




oh also if Rafal cannot perform, footage from rehearsals will be used not the live on tape

carpet ceremony will be adjusted slightly


each delegation will be transported via cruise boat separately, to one specific area (all outdoors anyways too so can be easy to manage interviews there with distance and fresh air outside)


the remaining polish delegation members will await their pcr test result today

the one infected person there was a woman, so one of their VIP's not one of the act's team (she was isolated from the rest immediately after they saw her test being positive)

no reason for worry, for the shows itself


semi 2 is the one seems to be the matter, now so in case they cannot perform live, their second rehearsal footage will be used, so we will still see their stagings and performance from ahoy anyway



Iceland am not worried for, since they can qualify easily with that second rehearsal either, i rather hope they are well for saturday's final then

Romania's delegation won't attend the carpet ceremony event as a precautionary measure more since they stay in same hotel as Iceland and Poland

but they didn't have contacts with any of the other delegations


nevertheless still will undergo a PCR test just to take no further risks

so the positive tests in team poland and team iceland were rapid antigen tests, and those are not really proven to be accurate, which is why everyone needs a pcr test which is more accurate
