It was eleven acts’ chance at a second rehearsal at this year’s Eurovision. Some were singing for redemption after a weak first rehearsal. For others, it was just another day in the office, proving that their package is ready and raring to go next week.

We want to know which of those 11 countries had your favourite second rehearsal. Was it Greece, San Marino, Armenia, Ireland, Moldova, Switzerland, Latvia, Romania, Denmark, Sweden or Austria? You can let us know your thoughts in our poll!

You can watch all our reviews of today’s rehearsals in the video below. Then vote in our poll. You can vote for as many countries as you like, but you can only vote one time, so make it count. Be sure to click the box next to each act you want to support before pressing submit.

Sweden and Greece are so overrated!the first with such an ordinary song and with a “sow it again “staging!the second with a staging and a stilling that just doesn’t fit with that kind of song and to the singer especially..too much sugary

Some negatives on Romania from youtube second rehearsal snippet – in English and Romanian. For the ease of comprehension for non-Romanian speakers: 1. On Ester’s arm movements. 2. Styling. 3. Outfits. 4. Make-up. 5. Dancers. 6. Messy. 7. Sorcery. 8. Creepy. 9. Cheap graphics. 10. She looking sick/washed out. If it’s too late to change the graphics, there’s no plan B for the outfits, and if there is little control over the camera work – seemingly many acts face the same problem, Romania could do some changes: 1. Soften the arm movements. 2. Improve the make-up. 3. Soften the facial… Read more »

Sorry, I haven’t heard anything! A few years ago a Dutch woman organised something for European expats, but I don’t think that is a regular thing. I hope you find a fun way to experience it!

Looking at Sweden’s staging this year it reminds me of austrias caesar Sampson’s staging from last year. Go see for yourself the lighting is so similar between last year’s Austria and this year’s Sweden. And not only is the staging similar, the songs are also very similar. Note: I love and will vote for Sweden this year, but I just thought this was an interesting point.

So glad someone else thinks this! Didn’t even consider Austria last year but then it did very well with the juries. Sweden must have taken notice.

Sweden stands out by a mile in the recap. John and the backing singers give such an energetic, high quality performance.
A lot of people say SF2 is the one with greater quality, but actually I think this first half is quite weak.

Greece is still amazing, and most probably the winner of sf 1. It is a potential winner (it is top 5 for me, and it should reach it) San Marino had vocal issues, but staging wise it’s good and appropritate, could qualify. Armenia was the best one for me today, at least camera angle wise and vocally she killed it. I fear that it could come off as scary, I hope I’m wrong and I think I am. Coming next to last in the press poll is a crime, tho. Ireland was fine, but it seems really random staging and… Read more »

Greece and Sweden look very solid. But I would say today’s winner was Austria, they showed they’re alive and kicking.

Having a look to the comments on youtube, Paenda will B one of the dark horses. Credible, authentic, touching, surprising.

Question to Team Wiwi : from the official snippets of the rehearsals, the camerawork looks bad for almost every act, with weird transitions and way too many wide angle shots. Is it just an impression or does it look different in the press room’s TV ?
Thank you for all your coverage of the rehearsals !

Yes i agree, i thought it was just me but nothing seems to be coming together right this year, the camera work seems to be way off and so many artists are having problems with other issues, i really hope it all comes together for the semis and final because at the moment im just not getting the usual eurovision vibe i get when it gets nearer to the live shows.
