Two days of rehearsals down and we’re now on to day 3! Since Sunday, rehearsals have gotten underway in the Eurovision 2018 host city of Lisbon with artists from across the 43 competing countries taking to the stage for the very first time. The semi-final 1 participants have completed their first rehearsals, meaning today we move on to the second semi-final participants!

It’s day 3 of rehearsals at the Altice Arena, the official host venue for the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest, and the arena is already packed with teams from across the 43 participating countries. From Portugal across to the other side of the world in Australia, the artists are ready with preparations truly underway!

Today we move on to the semi-final 2 participants of the competition, in which we will see the 9 participants from the first half of the show taking to the stage for their first rehearsals. Every country has 30 minutes onstage today, followed by a meet and greet afterwards.
