Rotterdam Calling: Day 6 begins

by Stefano Casellini 822 views

It’s another sunshine in the Netherlands. Delegations are heading to Rotterdam Ahoy for yet another day of rehearsals. It’s Day 6, here we go!

Eurofans will enjoy another busy day in Rotterdam. Today is going to be mixed: Malta will wrap up the second and last round of rehearsals for the first semi-final. Then we will move on to the first half of the second semi-final, to conclude with the first rehearsals of the so-called Big 5 (Italy, Germany, France, United Kingdom and Spain) and of this year’s host, the Netherlands.

Since the Big 5 and the Netherlands are rehearsing for the first time they will dispose of 30 minutes, whereas the semi-final acts will only be on stage for 20 minutes since it’s already their second time.

The nine acts competing in the second semi-final will rehearse according to the running order. As usual, following their rehearsals, each delegation will be having a Meet & Greet session at the press conference venue of this year’s contest.
