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 ESCXTRA.com 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.

Following last night’s jury rehearsal, we asked members of the press to choose the ten countries who they think will qualify from tomorrow’s semi final, based on tonight’s performances. It was a close call, but in the end Greece won the press poll with 9.80% of the votes!
