On Tuesday May 12 acts from eight countries — Serbia, Hungary, Belarus, Russia, Denmark, Albania, Romania and Georgia — took to the stage for their first rehearsals. Inside the press center, the team took note of the cheers (Polina Gagarina’s clever usage of pyro, Nina Sublatti’s other-worldly LEDs) and jeers (Maimuna’s lack of an oversized hourglass, Bojana’s Bride-of-Frankenstein hairdo). You can watch our recap of the winners and losers below, followed by our instant reactions filmed immediately after each rehearsal. Click on the country to read our rehearsal review.
