Two dancers will accompany Jean Claude on stage, but they were not present for the first rehearsal. Fire flames appear on the giant video screens set on stage.

Give me a chance – Eleanor Cassar

Eleanor performs alone on stage and gives a great vocal performance. There are simple but effective visualisations on the screens. Eleanor seemed satisfied with her performance.

My Last Encore – Mary Spiteri

Mary appears alone on stage, she has been a bit sick during the last two days but gives a good performance, despite the illness. Theatrical visuals are seen on the screens.

Casanova – Morena

Morena's voice is well tuned and she gives a very good performance. The visual aspect is dominated by fire flames and the light work is very colourful and leave a great impression.

Throw your stones – Daniela Vella

The second newcomer of this festival appears on stage. Her voice is picthed well and the lightwork is base on a blue colour. Daniela sings with passion and gives a good performance.

Love is just the way – Rosman Pace

Appearing alone on stage, Rosman gave a good first rehearsal. The visuals used are sparkle lines. The singer decided to take a very short break in the middle of his rehearsal.

Go – Klinsmann

Klinsmann Coleiro is next on stage accompanied by his band. There are a lot of light moves on stage and visualisations are very colourful. Klinsmann rehearsed with both ear-mic and stand mic while the boys' performance was full of energy.
