We’re back! After two years of waiting, the rehearsals of Eurovision 2021 commenced today! In light of COVID restrictions, this year’s organisers have build a virtual press centre, granting remotely-located journalists and fans access to rehearsals, interviews and press conferences for the first time.
The ESCXTRA.com team have logged onto the virtual press centre to stream all the action LIVE…from the comfort of our homes! Join the livechat on YouTube to ask our editors all you want to know. We will be reacting to rehearsals direct from the camera cuts in Ahoy and sharing our first impressions in real time.
Due to the open nature of this year’s press centre, there will be even more new faces to get to know, new people to ask about their favourite entries and even more descriptions of each rehearsal as they are performed on stage for the very first time.
For all rehearsal times, please check out the schedule we published!
Below, you can easily access all rehearsal reviews of today. We will link our blog posts as and when they drop!
