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.
After swapping with the Czech Republic, it was time for the Balkan state of Montenegro to rehearse. The 6-member group D mol will be trying to bring their country back to the final this year, for the first time after 2015.
The Montenegrin band are all in white suits, each one tailored slightly differently in order to reflect the members’ individuality. Their suits are made of slightly different materials to further this effect, and some of the suits are embroidered with golden patterns. A few members have some red highlights in their outfit, such as scarves and lapels.
