The team at ESCToday.com is on location in Vienna and remotely from home bringing you the latest news as the events occur on the Eurovision scene. Rehearsals continue in the host venue, the Wiener Stadthalle, with performances from the automatic qualifiers; the ‘Big 5’, the host country and the guest country.
The Makemakes, the selected Austrian representatives, are next to rehearse on the Eurovision stage today. The entrants for the host country do feel they are home, and you can it from the cosy act they have displayed. Soft lights that turn to fire as the song lifts up and the instruments on stage complete the act that welcomes the Eurovision Song Contest to Austria.
