The team at have arrived in the host city of Vienna, ready to bring you the latest news live from the Eurovision scene. First rehearsals continue today for the second semi-final of the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest and we’re ready to bring you the latest updates on location live from the Wiener Stadthalle.

The next country to rehearse this afternoon is Switzerland. Mélanie is joined on stage by 4 backing singers who are each standing in front of a drum. Mélanie herself is standing in the centre on a mini stage. She is wearing a black cape over her sparking white dress which does eventually get revealed. The backdrop is a mystical forest.

Watch Switzerland’s first rehearsal in the video below.

After Switzerland had finished their rehearsal, we asked members of the press to get their opinions of the performance. Here is what they had to say.
