Ireland's First Rehearsal

And finally for the first day of rehearsals, it’s Lesley Roy from Ireland singing her song Maps. The official video for this was filmed in the beautiful Irish countryside, so we're looking forward to seeing if Lesley will recreate that sense of space digitally, or whether she takes a completely new approach for her live performance. They're setting up the stage right now, and it looks VERY interesting.
