Eurovision 2019 Day 8 Preview

Before the fun and festivities of the Orange Carpet this evening — there’s the little case of six more second rehearsals! The Automatic Qualifiers return to Expo Tel Aviv to rehearse for the second time. Will anyone see their chances improve with another run-through?

Israel, France, Spain, Italy, the United Kingdom and Germany will be back with us this morning. See the full running order of all their second rehearsals and press conferences below!

Orange Carpet 2019

Then, this evening, the Orange Carpet — not Red! — will be live from Habima Square. The event starts at 19:00 Israeli time (18:00 CET), with entrants appearing in order of their semi-final draw — with Tamta up first.

Israel’s Kobi Marimi will be the last of the automatic qualifiers to take to the carpet. We’ll be covering the event across our social media and on YouTube, so make sure you’re following along for all the glitz and glamour.
