Day 6 of rehearsals are here at the Lisbon venue, in which artists will continue to enter the stage for either their first or second rehearsals for the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest. Starting with second rehearsals and moving on to the automatic finalists first rehearsals, today is set to be a busy day at the Altice Arena!

Today we move on to the sixth day of rehearsals at the Altice Arena, in which artists from a total of 15 countries will take to the stage for a mix of first and second rehearsals.

Finishing off the first semi-finalists second rehearsals, today we saw the first 5 artists of the second semi-final taking to the stage for their second rehearsals, now set to be joined by the acts from the ‘Big 5’ nations as well as Portugal for their first rehearsals of the competition.

SuRie of the United Kingdom is next to take to the stage today for her first rehearsal, with the British singer set to compete in the final of Eurovision 2018 on the 12 May with her entry Storm.

SuRie is now coming in front of the Eurovision stage, performing within a big diamond-shaped tunnel which is similar to that in her Graham Norton Show performance, which lies in the stage’s middle. She is dressed in a total white coverall, with her only one shoulder appearing.

Her tunnel has a LED lightning, with purple being the dominant colour for the UK’s entry.

Vocally, SuRie sounds good throughout today’s rehearsal onstage, with basic choreography performed by the singer to keep everything moving.
