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.
The last rehearsal of the first semi-final comes from Malta’s Ira Losco, whose performance has received a number of changes since the first rehearsal.
Having originally performed in a brown jacket with 360° images projected around it, today saw Ira perform in a completely different dress in black featuring sparkling gems on the top half. The projection was not used in today’s Maltese rehearsal. Ira performs alongside a male contemporary dancer who performs around the Maltese singer throughout the entire performance. Ira’s eyes and face also appears on the backing LED screens at different points in the performance.
Check out Malta’s second rehearsal below!
The second rehearsals of semi-final 1 have come to an end this evening with all 18 acts having performed on the stage today. Two more rehearsals take place this evening from 18:55 CEST, this time being the first rehearsals from France and Spain.
