Rehearsals are now well and truly underway in the city of Tel Aviv, which will be hosting this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. Today sees the first day of rehearsals, with the first half of the first semi-final evening taking to the impressive stage of Expo Tel Aviv.
9 countries are all set to make their debut onstage, 10 days before the live show of the first semi-final. Following their rehearsal, a Meet & Greet session will be coming next. These countries are Cyprus, Montenegro, Finland, Poland, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Belarus and Serbia.
Following the rehearsals of Cyprus and Czech Republic, the third act to make their first rehearsal is Darude feat. Sebastian Rejman from Finland. The popular singers are hoping to bring the country back to a higher position on the scoreboard this year. Will they make it?
We see little of Darude himself in this performance, but he is wearing a white long sleeved t-shirt. Sebastian wears a black leather jacket, tight leather-look black trousers and a low cut black t-shirt.

A female dancer accompanies them onstage, wearing a billowing green one-shoulder dress, providing the ethereal feel to their performance.The floatiness of the dress is used very effectively with the wind machines.
