After the first round of rehearsals for the acts in semi-final one, it’s time to set the stage for those, competing in second semi-final. Today, eight countries, competing on spots from 1 to 8, will rehearse and reveal what’s up their sleeves for next Thursday. Following times are local times (CET).

10:00-10:30 LATVIA
10:40-11:10 SAN MARINO
11:20-11:50 MACEDONIA
12:00-12:30 AZERBAIJAN

13:30-14:00 FINLAND
14:10-14:40 MALTA
14:50-15:20 BULGARIA
15:30-16:00 ICELAND

During these rehearsals, each artist will go through their performance several times to fix the camera angles and other mainly visual issues. Before getting on stage, all the vocalists will set their microphones and in-ear monitors to the right volume for themselves and the settings will then be saved on computers so that during the live shows these settings will be found right away.

Constantly updating report from today’s rehearsals will be on
