๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ Experience Eurovision 2019 behind-the-scenes with Tim!

It’s hard to believe that three months ago I was in Tel Aviv and was having the time of my life with a lovely bunch of people. Before the 2020 season comes into full swing, I just wanted to take this time to reflect on this amazing experience I had in Tel Aviv. Click through the pages below to find out more from what happened behind-the-scenes with myself and the ESCXTRA team!

Going to Tel Aviv

Of course, the first thing we have to do is to get to the host city. I travelled on the Friday prior to the start of rehearsals and I was really giddy and excited as it was the first time that I was going to experience Eurovision for the full two weeks of rehearsals and shows. I could not contain my excitement and I had to make sure I was prepared… I brought a lot of stuff with me!

First day of rehearsals

There’s no rest as after a brief few hours of settling in, it was already Saturday and the first day of rehearsals. It was my first time inside a Eurovision press centre and I felt such a kid at the candy store. We had the first nine countries from the first semi-final.

I am going to be honest and say I was a bit nervous heading into the first day but luckily enough I had fellow ESCXTRA member Ryan with me to guide me through it (big shout out to him for putting up with me!). I really enjoyed my first day as a press member and it is certainly something that I will remember for a very long time.

I started watching Eurovision ever since I moved to the UK in 2006, obsessed since 2012 and haven't looked back since.
