ISRAEL – The first day of rehearsals concluded. Expo Tel Aviv “Shalomed” the first half countries of the first semi final and we had lots of going on on stage, backstage. Let’s start with the winner of the day.
For the betting odds Czech Republic was the winner of the day as the entry ranks ow higher in the semi final betting odds. Montenegro and Finland lost odds as they seem to have failed to impress.
This is not wrong as the two songs were Neve so strong favourite tunes among the European community. Eurofans though seem to be excited today with Poland and Slovenia and they do expect more excitement from Cyprus o the next rehearsal especially resolving harmony issues with the backing vocals.
As usual many “experts” at the press area (who never manage to predict even half of the qualifiers) live streamed from n the spot each of them loving and disliking a song. Though the press area itself didn’t quite impressed the media and press representatives (who are indeed very few the fir day of the events).
There could be ore tv monitors, the interview rooms are in another area but the volunteers rock with their excitement and persuasion to help and assist you.
There was a problem with the sound from Cprus in the press area monitors, no-one explained why Montenegro and Czech Republic changed rehearsal times while Eurostars tried the Bech. Hatari and Lake Malawi enjoyed the beach and swim, respectively while Zena had jogging morning in the sea side.
Now you can re-watch the rehearsals footage given by EBU (which are short but this year quite comprehensive) and vote for your favourite three. We hope you don’t go massively vote for a country but to vote based on the videos.
In the meantime more participants land in Tel Aviv as they have to reach their hotels and prepare themselves for their rehearsal tomorrow. Greece, Switzerland and more countries already preparing themselves.
