by Jessica Weaver 15,508 views

Day one of rehearsals have come to an end which saw entrants from 9 countries performing on the Eurovision 2017 stage for the very first time. How did members of the viewing press rate each of today’s performances?

Following today’s rehearsals, 35 members of the press viewing each of the performances from the International Exhibition Centre watched and rated each of today’s appearances.

Members of the press were asked to rate the performances based on the rehearsals rather than by their favourite songs, in which they were asked to give 5 points to their 1st place, 3 points to their 2nd and 1 point to their 3rd.
