Rehearsals for the first semi-final are underway today as the 18 participants return to the arena for a second time! We here at ESCToday are ready to bring you the latest news live from the arena itself.
Croatia’s representative, Nina Kraljić, takes to the stage this morning where we get to see her Eurovision outfit in full for the first time; the original long grey dress with the black design remains, but as it’s removed it reveals a long elegant white dress with feathers attached.
Nina is joined by 4 backing vocalists on stage, who also assist in the removal of the first dress. The backing singers are wearing long black robes, covering most of their faces. A blue water backdrop appears on the LED screens for the first half of the performance, later changing to a night’s sky with stars.
Check out Croatia’s second rehearsal below!
Rehearsals continue this morning with the Netherlands before a break takes place.
