TONIGHT: dress rehearsal and the first semi-final

The week we’ve all been looking forward to is finally here! Yesterday started Eurovision Week off with a dress rehearsal and a jury show, in which the international jury scored the entries competing in the first semi-final. This afternoon will see the participants of this semi-final in the so-called ‘ family show’, which is also the dress rehearsal. At 21:00 CEST it’s time for the first live show of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. After tonight, we will know the first 10 countries who join the Big Five for the Grand Final on Saturday. How excited are we?!

Live-streaming for the whole day will start on from approximately 14:30 CEST. Join the livestream for the family show here , the livestream for the live show here and watch our team react live to the shows as it happens.

I have been watching Eurovision since I was a young girl, but I've been actively involved in the contest since 2016. I am really passionate about it and it's basically all I talk about from January till June. My favorite genre is probably pop/rock, but I enjoy a good ballad every now and then. I have been visiting Eurovision in Concert for a long time and I've been to 2 editions of Eurovision so far!
