The Czech Republic’s Gabriela slayed in a reflective silk gown. Bosnia and Herzegovina performed around a wall of barbed wire. And Estonia played their cards right and served up some casino realness. And that was just three of nine countries that had their first rehearsals on day two at Eurovision 2016. We asked you who had the best rehearsal. After counting 4,344 votes, we can now reveal that you guys think the Czech Republic’s Gabriela Guncikova won the day. And as you can tell from our reaction video, we completely agree!

The song starts in darkness and Gabriela slowly emerges wearing a white, floor-sweeping skirt with form-fitting bodice. Then, in what may be the most brilliant use of the LED floor and wall yet, we see her now famous purple, pink and blue geometric branding. The camera swoops back and she seems to disappear into the pink. Her white dress reflects the light of the floor well, making Gabriela a dynamic vessel of light.

The stunning Ira Losco from Malta is walking on water, and she walked right into second place by receiving 810 votes. Estonia’s Jüri Pootsmann hedged his bets and won third place, getting 488 votes.

Czech Republic is one of the most underrated countries of ESC. Gabriella has an amazing voice and also a strong-emotional ballad. Her performance was not something special but she managed to make us feel what she was singing about. I don’t know but her attitude and her personality has attracted me a lot and that’s a plus for her. Czech Republic straight to the final!!!!!! Love from Greece

Gabriela has an amazing voice but her song is boring. I regret Gabriela doesn`t sing rock song. This ballad is so boring and recycled.

Samra 8th position – it`s good news because Samra has a weak vocal.

No way! Azerbaijan 8th? This should be the last one. Highway was much better than the weakest vocal, Samra. Hope she not to qualify

I agree with the results, except for Estonia, they are overrated. I really like their song but the rehearsal was awful.
