On Monday May 11 acts from eight countries — Moldova, Armenia, Belgium, The Netherlands, Finland, Greece, Estonia and FYR Macedonia — took to the stage for their first rehearsals. We were watching events unfold in the press centre and were privy to all the thrills (Eduard Romanyuta ripping off his shirt, Trijntje Oosterhuis flashing cleavage) and spills (Loïc’s dancers literally falling). Below you can watch our recap of the winners and losers, followed by our instant reactions filmed immediately after each rehearsal. Click on the country to read our rehearsal review. Who won for you?
