by Richard West-Soley 48 views

After yesterday's second day of semifinalist rehearsals, all of the acts bar Iceland have had a chance to perform on stage. Today, we start again with the second round of rehearsals, whilst Iceland's Eirikur gets his first chance to perform.

The second rehearsal slots last only thirty minutes per country, as opposed to the forty minutes that each artist gets the first time round. However, Iceland receives its full allocation of forty minutes today due to the swap with Estonia's first rehearsal.

The full line-up for the day is as follows:

  • Bulgaria rehearsal 10:30 – 11:00
  • Israel rehearsal 11:00 – 11:30
  • Cyprus rehearsal 11:30 – 12:00
  • Belarus rehearsal 12:00 – 12:30
  • Iceland rehearsal 13:30 – 14:10
  • Georgia rehearsal 14:10 – 14:40
  • Montenegro rehearsal 14:40 – 15:10
