It's Saara Aalto's birthday! Finland's Eurovision hopeful turns 31 today. Today is also Engelbert Humperdinck's 82nd birthday. The legendary singer represented the United Kingdom in 2012. Congratulations to both!

What's happening tomorrow?

Tomorrow, we will be looking at the second rehearsals of the first first fifteen acts of the first Semi-Final. Each participant will get 20 minutes on stage to fine-tune their act. Accredited press will be allowed inside the Altice Arena for the first time to admire the stage and follow the rehearsals from up close.

To make sure you don't miss anything of what is happening inside the Eurovision bubble, we will  feed you with exclusive backstage updates in our live blog throughout the day. We will also release exclusive 30-second video clips straight from the actual camera feed. Don't forget; it's still rehearsals!
