Good morning from a beautifully sunny Rotterdam, and welcome to Day 5 of the Eurovision.tv Live Blog. We're moving into a new phase of rehearsals today, as artists taking part in the first Semi-Final are welcomed back to the main stage. The only exception is Malta, who was always scheduled for second rehearsals first thing tomorrow.
We won't be based in the arena so much today, instead roving around to bring you all the backstage goings-on and news from Rotterdam Ahoy. But we'll definitely be keeping an eye on the big screen to see if there are any changes to performances or costumes during second rehearsals, and later we'll be able to post another 30-second video.
Please stay tuned, and if you're enjoying the Live Blog don't forget to share on Twitter!
