Eurovision Song Contest 2018: Semi-Finals Second Rehearsals

As the end of this week closes, and the start of Eurovision Week is upon us; the second rehearsals start. We’ve seen the first rehearsals from all the semi-finalists as well as the first rehearsals from the host country and the big five; now it’s time to watch the second rehearsal clips.

This year, the Eurovision Song Contest 2018, will be hosted at the Altice Arena, Lisbon, Portugal; after Salvador Sobral won the contest last year with his song “Amar Pelos Dois”. The first semi-final will take place on 8 May 2018, with the second semi-final on 10 May 2018. This will whittle down the contestants who will perform at the Grand Final, next week, on 12 May 2018.
