A couple of hours ago, the fourth day of rehearsals came to an end. The remeaning acts of the 2nd semifinal will rehearse at the Pala Olimpico, in Turin. In contrast to the previous years, all the 1st rehearsals are closed to the press. However, people can stay up to date through the official TikTok account of Eurovision.
The first act to take the stage today was Brooke from Ireland. Brooke takes her banger entry on stage. She starts the song lying on the floor along with her four dancers. The performers are all white-dressed, whilst Brooke wears a turquoise outfit. There are also pyros and fireworks during her performance.
North Macedonia 🇲🇰
North Macedonia’s Andrea appears solo on stage; her two backing vocalists don’t seem to be in the background. Andrea wears a black outfit with an oversised black coat.
Estonia is next. Stefan will sing – like in the national final – along with his guitar. His outfit has country vibes, like his song. His overall appearance resembles the one in Eesti Laul, with the only exception being the absence of the two cowboys.
Romania’s Wrs and his four dancers present a very energetic appearance. Wrs wears black trousers and a red shirt, resembling a Flamingo dancer. The two female performers wear red jumpsuits, whilst the males wear red crop tops and black trousers. It is noteworthy that his backing vocalist doesn’t seem to appear on the stage.
Poland is the next country to perform. Ochman wears a simple black suit and is accompanied by four female dancers. The performers resemble ghosts; they wear black outfits and black masks. The vocals sound very dynamic!
Another artist with powerful vocals is Vladana from Montenegro. Vladana is alone on a foggy stage. She wears an eye-catching blue dress, which, along with her voice, can fill the stadium.
Jérémie from Belgium performs next. His vocals are perfect and he shows us some dancing moves, joining his four dancers. He wears a pair of jeans, a black t-shirt and a silver jacket. In contrast, all his dancers are dressed in black.
Sweden’s Cornelia Jakobs is the next artist to perform. Her staging is exactly the same as her national final performance. While she sings, she is barefoot and wears the silver crop top from Melodifestivalen.
Czech Republic 🇨🇿
The Czech Republic is the last country to take the stage today. During the performance, we notice the use of many lights, which comes in contrast with the title of the song. All the band members wear matching black outfits with purple and beige touches. It is noteworthy that there is a backing vocalist that doesn’t appear on stage.
Those were all the rehearsals that took place today in Turin. Tomorrow, we will have the chance to learn more about the staging for almost all the 1st semifinal’s participants – Albania, Latvia, Lithuania, Switzerland, Slovenia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, the Netherlands, Moldova, Portugal, Croatia, Denmark, Austria and Greece. These entries will rehearse for the second time on the stage. In addition, the press will be able to watch them.
