Good morning Europe and the rest of the world!
It’s Friday (Day 6) and although most people’s work weeks are winding down, ours is just beginning. Today will be a jam-packed day with both first and second rehearsals begin.
Second rehearsals will continue with the rest of Semi-Final 1 (Armenia, Slovenia, Latvia) and transition into the first part of Semi-Final 2 (Serbia, Austria, FYR Macedonia, Malta, Romania). As noted yesterday, for these rehearsals, we can enter the arena and watch the performances there. Performers are also required to wear their full costumes for this rehearsal.
In the afternoon, first rehearsals will then occur for the Big 5 (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom) and the host country (Ukraine). We will not be able to be in the arena for those rehearsals, although we will keep you up to speed on our LiveStream. Be sure to follow to keep up with all of the latest news and happenings at the arena and press center!
