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 ArmeniaIrelandMoldovaSwitzerlandLatviaRomaniaDenmarkSweden and Austria.

Despite performing 3rd at the second semi-final, Moldova is today’s fifth rehearsing entry, after swapping with Latvia. With an extraordinary staging, Anna Odobescu will try to achieve one more successful Eurovision placing for her country.

Anna wears a large white dress, very reminiscent of a wedding dress. The basic part of the dress is short, white, strapless and lacy. A large net skirt is worn over the top at the back, and Anna wears two oversized net sleeves to match the skirt. Anna’s sand artist wears an off-the-shoulder bardot style ballgown, which is black and white and covered in sparkles.
