Eurovision Song Contest 2018: Host Country & Big Five Second Rehearsals

Can you believe that tomorrow is the start of Eurovision Week? It’s all come around so quickly. Behind-the-scenes of the contest, rehearsals are in full swing. We’ve already seen the first rehearsals from the semi-finalists, the first rehearsals from the host country and the big five; we’ve also seen the second rehearsals from the semi-finalists. So it’s now time for the host country and the big five to take to the stage for their second rehearsals.

Last year, Salvador Sobral won the contest with his song “Amar Pelos Dois”, bringing the Eurovision Song Contest to Portugal. It will be held at the Altice Arena, Lisbon; with the semi-finals taking place on 8 May and 10 May, whilst the Grand Final takes place on 12 May 2018.
