by Jessica Weaver 607 views

Rehearsals are underway in the host city of Lisbon, with artists from across the competing semi-final 1 nations of the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest are currently taking to the official stage for the very first time. We move on to the duo from Switzerland for the next set of semi-final 1 first rehearsals.

We’re back at the Altice Arena in Lisbon for the second day of Eurovision rehearsals, where today a total of 9 artists from the first semi-final will be taking to the stage for the first time for their first set of rehearsals onstage.

Switzerland’s Zibbz is the next to take to the stage for their first Eurovision 2018 rehearsal in Lisbon. They will be competing in the first semi-final of the competition on the 8 May with their entry Stones.

It’s a dark red theme for the Swiss duo on the Eurovision stage with white lighting effects really springs up the spirit across the arena during Switzerland’s performance. Powerful energy encapsulates the stage, plenty of camera angles in use to keep the performance busy.

First look at Switzerland’s first rehearsal for Eurovision 2018

Vocally, Switzerland’s performance was solid today, with some particularly difficult notes being hit throughout the high energy act. Audience interaction will play a decent part in Zibbz performance on the night of the semi-final, much to the crowd’s delight.

Whilst the focus is mainly on the 2 singers, there is plenty of movement and interaction to become a strong performance. We will see if there are any changes to the performance in the second rehearsal.
