The latest artist to rehearse is OG3NE from The Netherlands. We have just watched their first run through of Lights and Shadows live on screen and here is our initial reaction.

Summary in a sentence

OG3NE are faultless in their delivery of the song, and the staging is very classy but is it memorable?


OG3NE’s backdrop is fairly dark in colour with various lyrics from the song appearing on the LEDs at different points.  During the second verse, candles appear on the backdrop and the floor. Towards the end the sisters all face each other for ultimate power.


Their vocals are perfect as always, harmonies are spot on.


All three of them are wearing black, glittery outfits. 2 of the girls are wearing dresses with one in a trouser suit.

Watch the rehearsal!

As the first rehearsals are closed to the press, only the official Eurovision website has access to film the performances. Therefore, as soon as these videos get uploaded we will edit in the video here!

Stay tuned for our reaction to Joci Pápai as he rehearses Origo next for Hungary. Meanwhile, remember to tune in to our live stream from the press centre for instant reactions to each rehearsal.

My first memory of watching the Eurovision Song Contest was back in 2001 and, over the years, my passion and enthusiasm for the contest has very much turned into an obsession. I adore music and I love geography, so this contest is a natural fit for me. If la la loving Eurovision was a crime, I'd certainly be a criminal!
