It’s now time for the rehearsals of semi-final 2 to take place this afternoon, where the 18 participants will take to the stage at the Globe Arena for a second time! We here at ESCToday are ready to bring you the latest news live from the arena itself.
Nicky Byrne was next to take to the stage following a short break at the arena, wearing the same outfit he wore in the first rehearsal.
The main colour used throughout Nicky’s performance is red and fitting in with the name of the Irish entry, Sunlight, an image of the sun appears on the backing LED screens. Nicky is joined onstage by 3 band members, playing the drums, guitar and keyboard on podiums behind Nicky. Towards the latter part of the performance, Nicky removes the microphone from the stand and walks down the catwalk, where the song comes to an end.

Rehearsals continue this afternoon with FYR Macedonia, Lithuania, Australia, Slovenia and Bulgaria before another break takes place.
