Rehearsals are now well and truly underway in the city of Tel Aviv, which will be hosting this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. Today sees the third day of rehearsals, with the first half of the second semi-final evening taking to the impressive stage of Expo Tel Aviv.

Nine countries are all set to make their debut onstage, 10 days before their live performance at the second semi-final. Following their rehearsal, a Meet & Greet session will be coming next. These countries are Armenia, Ireland, Moldova, Switzerland, Latvia, Romania, Denmark, Sweden, Austria.

Day 3 opens with Armenia’s Srbuk, who aspires to bring her nation back to the Grand Final, following their elimination last year in Lisbon. The 25-year-old singer will perform the powerful entry Walking out… in flames!

Srbuk emulates the dark and powerful look we saw in her music video, as she takes to the stage wearing a short black dress, styled like an oversized blazer. Her waist in cinched in by a black PVC belt, and her statement piece are a pair of black mesh thigh-high boots. A very modern look, which suits everything about her song.
