The team at have arrived in the host city of Vienna, ready to bring you the latest news live from the Eurovision scene. Today we’re here at the first Eurovision 2015 rehearsals for semi final 2.

Leonor Andrade is joined on stage by four backing singers who are all wearing hats. The hats are only being used today as test to see if it works. A decision will be decided later on if they are to be present during the performance.

All in all, it looks like we may see a few changes in the next rehearsal.
