Another day, another set of second rehearsals. Friday saw the final three countries from the first semifinal as well as five countries from the second semifinal give their stage shows another go. Romania’s Alex Florea kept his balance while riding a glitter cannon, Armenia’s Artsvik traded in street clothes for a warrior-like gown and Latvia’s Triana Park debuted yet another wig. We’re dying to know what her real hair looks like!

But which of today’s eight performing countries — Armenia, Slovenia, Latvia, Serbia, Austria, FYR Macedonia, Latvia, Romania — was your favourite?

You can watch all of our footage, alongside our reviews of today’s second rehearsals, in the playlist below. Below that, you can also find our “winners and losers” of the day video.

Also,why do we have to be vulgar towards each other,what is the result for that cursing (I think) or attacking with criticisms.
Just let us be respectful towards each other.
Eurovision is only a contest to bring us togather.
Let’s be happy and enjoy all of each is performed.
There is a message in each one of them.
Thank you!

It’s about time to see some art,music,culture and performance intermingled and produced.
This is where the world (countries participating) come together and choose the most talented.
Armenia ,I believe this year has done a great job. Let’s be fair!

Why is there not a poll for the Big 5 rehearsals or why not put them in this poll??

They rehearsed May 5th as well!

I really wanted to vote for the UK. Lucie is absolutely slaying on that stage. Best rehearsal of the day for me by far! I think they’re a serious contender this year!

If this was still a Song Contest Malta will qualify for the finals and even have a good position in the final but nowadays ESC is more based on the show the country gives. I’m glad Claudia’s voice is being recognized for the power she has.

I agree with you! It is very sad that people nowadays dont appreciate quality and emotional songs, such as Malta and The Netherlands. These songs are very deep and they mean a lot to these singers and they sing from the heart. These songs are not just sung typically, but the singers feel every word they sing to. I really hope from the bottom of my heart that they qualify for the finals, because as you said it is a SONG contest! Fortunately after their rehearsals they receive very positive feedback and i am happy for this at least cause… Read more »

Nothing really stood out for me here!
However, I always love Armenia’s staging! I also like Austria’s and Romania’s performance!

Voted for Latvia. I think it is underrated. Though it was amazing. Not a winner, but better than others.

Romania and Armenia, second rehearsals were better than their first rehearsal

i want to say Claudia is a amazing singer for Malta, despite having a very boring song, still fighting for their qualifying spot

On rehearsal strength Armenia yes, by the margin of the poll – no (these are always flawed): will do well but will not be in the top 3. Poll would require a limit of votes being cast from the PC (a-la voting for Barbara Dex award)

Austria and Armenia were best!

Two qualifiers from here: Austria and Malta. The rest has to be shed (though I like Slovenia). Romania is dreadful – utter rubbish!

Like there was any doubt) again inflated votes for armenia by armenians) it’s enormously ridiculous)

Arc

I thought Armenia was clearly the best out of this bunch and I’m not Armenian. For me some of the best songs of the contest have been from Armenia for the past few years. There are always going to be people voting for their own country, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the song is undeserving.

Stop whining… I voted for Armenia as well and I’m not armenian

Agnes

funny what you and others say, when Armenia wins in a poll here. Like Wiwibloggs guys and press are all armenians too, that’s why wiwi’s and press poll winner is also Armenia ? lol

Armenia screams quality, professionalism and absolutely artistic and creative. This is the entry that is going to challenge Italy for the trophy.

armenia, hands down. (they will probably win this poll if their rehearsal is the worst tho)

jana needs a different hairstyle during her performance. seeing her fiddle her hair every 5 seconds is kinda distracting.
