The first open rehearsals of Eurovision 2017 are still going underway and the part 3 is here for the rest 7 entries of the first Semi-Final.

In today’s first open dress rehearsal, the 18 participating entrants have performed a full run-through of today’s show – the same way as it would run during the live broadcast – in order to make sure everything runs smoothly on the live night.

This is the first dress rehearsal of the day, with the next dress rehearsal taking place this evening. However in tonight’s show, the jury will be present and waiting to arrange their votes on behalf of their country.

These votes will be added to the televoting votes from tomorrow evening, with the top 10 countries qualifying to Saturday’s final.

12 Moldova

The Moldovan entrants SunStroke Project took the stage for their first dress rehearsal. The band has not made any special changes to their performance since their first set of rehearsals.

13 Iceland

The Icelandic 2017 entrant Svala continued the first dress rehearsals with her song Paper. The performance itself is strong, but whether it’ll completely stand out on the night remains to be seen.

14  Czech Republic

Martina Bárta is the next artist to rehearse once more her entry on the Eurovision stage. Martina presented quite an atmospheric and artistic performance today.

15 Cyprus

Cyprus takes the stage with Hovig’s great vocal abilities and choreography; the staging itself is full of geometrical shapes with black and white being the main theme.

16 Armenia

The winner of the press poll for semi-final 1, Artsvik took again the stage for rehearsals. Another remarkable act of the first semi-final with powerful choreography.

17 Slovenia

It’s Omar Naber‘s turn to rehearse and the Slovene participant gets to the stage. His performance is about being alone on stage with lots of lights in white and blue around him.

18 Latvia

The participation of Latvia is the last one to rehearse. The band Triana Park produces a performance full of colours and rhythm.
