Eurovision 2016 Rehearsals: Day 4


eurovision sweden 2016Eurovision 2016 – With two weeks to go to the contest, daily rehearsals start today and of course the Eurovision Times will do its best to cover them; here’s for the first rehearsals to the second half of semifinal 2: pics and vids will be officially released and we get to discuss, debate, analyze, predict…

So this is how it’ll work for the next 10 days or so: we will resume the system from last year. This is, there’s an article for the day’s rehearsals published the morning (or night before, knowing myself) with the calendar, which you can also find on the official site here. You can comment all day on it, based on all the info you can gather around and as soon as I can, I’ll get working on a recap article with links to pictures, videos, etc. However, I do work and have busy weeks at work ahead of me so I’ll do that at the latest in the evening, sooner if possible, depending. Usually, the girls are down there and as you know, this year ET did not get a pass, so they’ll be following from here and will help publishing any news article.

So we’re all counting on you guys to post in the comment section all the links you find and discuss all material out there. Hope it works out great for everyone, and already a big cheers to all the sites who will post their own made materials (Esckaz, Escxtra, Escinsight and the infamous Esctoday come to mind).

Here’s tomorrow’s schedule: Semifinal 2 – Half 2 – First rehearsal

  • Slovenia 10:00-10:30 Slovenia First rehearsal
  • Bulgaria 10:40-11:10 Bulgaria First rehearsal
  • Denmark 11:20-11:50 Denmark First rehearsal
  • Ukraine 12:00-12:30 Ukraine First rehearsal
  • Slovenia 12:10-10:30 Slovenia Press Meet & Greet
  • Bulgaria 12:50-13:10 Bulgaria Press Meet & Greet
  • Denmark 13:30-13:50 Denmark Press Meet & Greet
  • Norway 13:40-14:10 Norway First rehearsal
  • Ukraine 14:10-14:30 Ukraine Press Meet & Greet
  • Georgia 14:20-14:50 Georgia First rehearsal
  • Albania 15:00-12:30 Albania First rehearsal
  • Belgium 15:40-16:10 Belgium First rehearsal
  • Norway 15:50-16:10 Norway Press Meet & Greet
  • Georgia 16:30-16:50 Georgia Press Meet & Greet
  • Albania 17:20-17:40 Albania Press Meet & Greet
  • Belgium 17:50-18:10 Belgium Press Meet & Greet

There will therefore be 10 countries getting their first taste of the stage and first impression from it.

As usual, in first go, countries rarely reveal everything from their staging, definitely not the clothes. But the fans get an idea of what direction the performance is heading towards. Usually, the official site publishes photo sets from rehearsals and a short clip (around 90 seconds) about the artist’s impressions around 40 minutes later. Last year it was not possible for any fan sites to record anything else, so you’ll have to just read what everyone there thought about it without seeing more with your own eyes (and of course hear with your own ears).

  1. Press voting for SF2:

    1. Ukraine 119
    2. Israel & Bulgaria 74
    4. Australia 71
    5. Latvia 68
    6. Belgium 58
    7. Serbia 55
    8. Georgia 47
    9. Poland 14
    10. FYR Macedonia 10
    11. Belarus, Switzerland & Norway 9
    14. Ireland and Denmark 4
    16. Slovenia 3
    17. Lithuania and Albania 1

    Obviously, everyone hates the majority of entries in this SF and rightly so. I am not convinced yet about Georgia’s chances but I would like to see them in.

    • I agree. Lithuania and Norway may qualify, replacing Poland and Georgia.

      • Norway is a very likely qualifier. The lat ticket is a fight among Lithuania, Poland and Denmark. FYR Macedonia might fall in this group but the juries might give to Kaliopi that little push she needs to qualify.

  2. No Ukraine yet? Looking forward to that :D

  3. Oh I guess I’m just stupid then :P I’m not checking any blog/site other than ET (I didn’t get to check ET today either due to some stuff including and not limited to exams and uk elections)
    But yeah after a quick google search for ‘Ukraine rehearsal’ I found it. And it’s promising as expected :D

  4. What I like in this edition is how wiwi guys crown new winners every day :) Glad for Jamala’s good rehearsal! Very mysterious edition and I think voting would be very intriguing without recent changes as well

  5. Did people see the Lithuania vid showing how it looks on the screen, too many long shots and fast changes of cameras for me :/
