The rehearsals did not really change much, except probably Czechia and The Netherlands. I'm not feeling super happy with their live performances and staging choices, but I hope they'll surprise me on Chewsday. Then there's Greece - a pure tragedy.

This is my final ranking after reherasals, with some changes.

1st to 3rd

:12: points

:fr: :es: :fi:

I really hope that one of these three ends up winning: the songs are in their native language, and they are original and authentic, and plus, the performances seem to really work for them three.
Some pros and cons on these particular ones:

France:
- Pros: Pure class and elegance. Nice disco beat. Great charisma and dance moves.
- Cons: The platform she's on in the performance. I find it too pretentious. Also the French flag, I find it unnecessary.

Spain:
- Pros: Roots, originality and great voice. Also the performance is outstanding
- Cons: Maybe it's too Spanish for certain people's ears and taste of music, so I wouldn't be surprised it gets a lot of 0 from many countries (I hope the others can save her).

Finland:
- Pros: Great stage presence, show and ideas behind this project. Good song as well (it's more a song to watch rather to listen to imo).
- Cons: He barely sings in many part of the songs, which can cost him many points from the juries.


3rd to 10th

:10: points

:cy:, :ch: - The songs are not the most original ones, but vocals and visuals are on point.
:ua: - The most underrated song this year (not in the odds, ofc). The performance will look slick and I think Europe will appreciate this.

:8: points
:il: The biggest surprise here. That rehearsal was insane. Although I'm not really fond of the song itself, I think the performance will be incredible. That's what I'm here for, for quality and then... for a good show.
:az:, :al: :pt: - They all complete the top 10 at the moment. But I am aware of how hard time they will have to qualify. Fingers crossed.

Now... from 11th to 20th

:7: points

:lt: This one was gone down a bit to let others go up, but I still think it's a cute song that will end up decently in the scoreboard.
:md: I really loved the rehearsal, they elevated the performance and at this point I think Moldova will be in the top 10 again.
:sl: Great energy, not sure how well this will do. I hope at least top 15.
:no: This has grown on me a little bit, but I still think it's too Eurovision. It may be a surprise flop in the final or do extremely well (in the televote). I don't think the juries will love this one too much.
:rs: Same as in the national final, it is good, but maybe the song won't be for everybody. Let's see.

:6: points
:it: I like Marco Mengoni, and I really loved him back in 2013 (he was in my top 5). This time, he comes back with a blander song in my opinion. We don't know how much juries will appreciate this one, but being in the first half and with such a simple performance I cannot help it but think he may be close to the bottom when it comes to the televote.
:se: Too overhyped and generic. Maybe I'm biased as I don't like returning artists that come back and try to win again, but Euphoria was in another level, and you can't come back 11 years later with a much worse song. It's all about the show. If the show wasn't there this wouldn't work the same way
:at: I've never been the biggest fan of the song but the rehearsals were underwelming. Not a contender anymore.
:uk: Mae stopped being a contender since the first preparty in Barcelona. The song is catchy and that's why I'm giving it 6 out of 12, but the live performance downgrades it a lot imo.
:ro: He used to be one of my favourites and now he's in my 20th place. I have to agree it's one of the worst songs this year, although I appreciate this vocals and energy, that's why I'm still giving him a 6 out of 12.

And finally, from 21st to 39th...

:5: points
:pl: - Only for the song, the rest is shocking.
:ge: - One of the biggest faders for me. The rehearsals didn't do her justicie, and unless juries appreciate the song I won't see Georgia succeeding.
:be: - Catchy tune, but nothing else. It's just stays here.
:de: - This one is one of my biggest growers, from 35th I think to the top 25 already. The big 5 this year is on fire, and Germany isn't an exception. The performance looks expensive and vocals slick. And now that we know they will perform in the second half, I think this one could be in the top 10 of the televote.

:4: points
:dk: - I think the performance will look cute, but the song is so... irrelevant. I wish he had a better song, but right now I see him out of the final or sneaking in 10th place.
:am: - The same. The song isn't for me, and the staging looks weird.
:lv: - I know this one has a lot of fans but in my case I find it quite difficult to fully connect with it. Still, I really hope Latvia qualifies after so many years becuse I appreciate the authencity in it.

:3: points
:mt: - This feels so JESC I cannot give it more than 3. I think they have no chance unfortunately
:cz: - I wish I would've been able to connect with this one, but this is not for me. I don't know whether this will flop or not (maybe it will do decent).

:2: points
:is: - Very plastic song, empty staging. I don't know, not for me
:au: - While Germany has gone up this stays where it was. What is a car doing in the middle of the stage? I don't really get it. As per the song, next.
:ee: - Plastic and generic ballad that will be forgotten in its semifinal.

:1: point
:ie: :gr: :nl:

:0: points
:sm: :hr:

I won't add any comments in these last 5 because I don't wanna be too harsh on them. Let's just say I really dislike them.
