ESCXTRA are live from Kyiv for day six of rehearsals ahead of the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest! Like yesterday, we can bring you live audio from the press centre television screens that show each rehearsal. The countries rehearsing today, in chronological order, are Armenia, Slovenia, Latvia, Serbia, Austria, F.Y.R. Macedonia, Malta, Romania, Ukraine, Italy, Spain, Germany, United Kingdom and France. Furthermore, read our handy guide for a more detailed look at this contest’s rehearsal schedule.
In addition, for our immediate reactions to every single rehearsal, you can follow our live stream from the press centre at the International Exhibition Center by visiting our YouTube channel. Also, you will also be able to listen live to each second rehearsal as it happens and give us your opinions in our live chat.
The next artist to take to the stage for her second rehearsal is Claudia Faniello from Malta. We have just watched their first run through of Breathlessly live from Kyiv and here is our reaction.
Claudia still has her blue LED backdrop as we saw in the previous rehearsal. She is in a beautiful white formal dress. Of course, Claudia’s vocals are fantastic as always with her gorgeous vocal tone elevating the song.
I still fear this song isn’t memorable enough to grab televotes from fourth in the running order but juries should support this. Unfortunately I don’t think juries will support it enough to counteract a poor televote score, so a 20% chance of qualification.
Watch the rehearsal!
We will bring you video footage from this second rehearsal as soon as we have it!
Stay tuned for our reaction to Ilinca & Alex Florea as they rehearse Yodel It! next for Romania. Meanwhile, remember to tune in to our live stream from the press centre. There you can ask us your questions and tune in to some live stream interviews with special guests!
