Day five of Eurovision 2021 rehearsals is behind us. And now, we’re getting a clearer image of how the competition is shaping up.
Today, 14 acts took to the Rotterdam Ahoy stage for their second rehearsals. We got another look at the performances from Lithuania, Slovenia, Russia, Sweden, North Macedonia, Ireland, Cyprus, Norway, Croatia, Belgium, Israel, Romania, Azerbaijan and Ukraine. We also saw another teaser of Australia’s live-on-tape recording.
