The latest artist to rehearse is Tijana Bogićević from Serbia. We have just watched her first run through of In Too Deep live on screen and here is our initial reaction.

Summary in a sentence

A very solid first rehearsal that puts focus on the song and Tijana.


The beginning of performance was filmed in black and white before bursting into colour for the first chorus. The theme after that is centred around the use of blue and white. Images of water are used for the LED backdrop and there is a great camera shot towards the end of Tijana standing in the middle of an LED whirlpool using the floor. Halfway through the song she is joined by a male dancer performing interpretative dance moves.


Tijana was competent in her first run through although the mixing and harmonies with her backing vocalists needs improvement.


She was wearing a white blouse and pantsuit without the jacket. Her dancer is also in a white blazer and trousers.

Watch the rehearsal!

Stay tuned for our reaction to Nathan Trent as he rehearses Running On Air next for Austria. 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!
