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.
Slovenia is the fifth act to rehearse onstage today! Zala Kralj & Gašper Šantl are performing their ballad entry Sebi, in the battle for a spot at the Grand Final.
Zala and Gašper are both all in white. Zala wears a white polo-neck t-shirt; Gašper a plain white t-shirt. Both wear white loose-fitting cropped trousers and white trainers, giving their performance a clean and modern look.
