Day 6, let’s go! Good morning Europe and good evening Australia! We are back at the Expo Tel Aviv, as the second rehearsals for the 35 countries competing at the two semi-finals have now well and truly kicked-off! Today a further 11 acts will get on-stage for the second time, while the automatic qualifiers (Big 5 & Israel) will have their first rehearsals!

Following the conclusion of the day’s second rehearsals, the 6 already qualified countries of the competition (United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Israel) are all set to take to the stage for the first time, just eight days before the Grand Final.

Opening the last bunch of first rehearsals is Kobi Marimi, who will be representing Israel on Home ground this year. The Israeli entry is one more act featured by mirrors, of uneven shape this time, which screen the lead artist’s face. A static performance, with smooth vocals by Kobi and his backing vocalists who stand behind him.

Kobi Marimi is wearing a black suit and and shirt. His black trousers are fashionable cropped, and he isn’t wearing socks. His jacket has tails, giving him a dramatic look. Joni accessorises with a modern-looking bow tie, with a silver lining. His jacket has velvetine detail on the shoulder pads, finishing the very polished look.
