Today is another busy day for the participants in this year's Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Rehearsing, rehearsing and… rehearsing!

Between 9:00 and 11:00 Greece, Denmark, Croatia, Romania, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Russia and FYR Macedonia rehearsed. From 11:30 on, the Netherlands, Serbia & Montenegro, Latvia and Belgium appeared on stage. Starting at 13:30, Malta, Norway, Spain and Belarus rehearsed their entries.

Tess from the Netherlands doesn't feel well. With her sore throat she decided not to sing live during today's rehearsals, in order to recover in time for the real deal on Saturday night. Nicolai didn't have his skateboard during the rehearsal, so he 'playbacked' the skate movements. Press in attendance compared the performance of M+ from Sweden with the performance of t.A.T.u., back in 2003 in Riga. Alina's performance is choreography-focussed and it seems the young Romanian delegation was inspired by Sakis Rouvas, Ruslana and NOX. Nevertheless, the performance was successful. Vlad from Russia received the biggest applause after his performance.
