@17:03 But you surely can't wait to see Mariya's (Ukraine) performance today. As for stage outfit Mariya is still struggling with the hardest choice in every girl’s life: “Which dress will be the best suited one?” So let’s wait till the show to see what Mariya chose. In the meantime, her song as video in a full length.
{Video#YT, id: a38Q2H06REg}
@16:55 The Eurovision stage is taken over by Cristina Scarlat from Moldova in the meantime! More details in the following article.
@16:47 Mariya Yaremchuk’s entry is very well thought through: from camera angles to the lights and dresses. The singer entered the stage in a beautiful shining black long dress with a deep slit up the side.

@16:33 Acrobatic is not a word one would usually associate with powerful ballads like Start A Fire, but with a talented trapeze artist on stage, Dilara's performance is indeed this, albeit in a more abstract way.

@16:25 "The first rehearsal was good, the second was amazing", Hersi commented on in her press conference today. "Everything is perfect, the crew are doing a perfect job. I'm just enjoying. The only thing we changed since last time was our dresses."

@16:01 In today's rehearsal, the Tolmachevy Twins started the stage act standing on the balanced seesaw with their hair interwoven - later they move away from each other, and the link breaks.
