What a first day here in Moscow! The first day of rehearsals started good for Montenegro's delegation - they got on stage first - but less fortunate for those who were waiting for their accreditation badges early this morning (delay!). Challenges were faced, solutions were found and in general, the ball started rolling. And... it won't slow down for the next two weeks!
It was an exciting and fun day for most of the crew members. The technical crew faced the first acts on stage, an army of volunteers helped out hundreds of journalists and even the catering people were challenged as suddenly hundreds of media representatives and delegates swarmed their restaurant for lunch. Traditionally, the first day is also the day that logistical challenges appear on the surface. Challenges are to be solved, and that is exactly what happened!
Tomorrow, representatives from another nine countries will reveal the first bits and pieces of their performances. The day starts at 9:30 local time (CET+2) with the rehearsal of Israel's candidates, and will end around 18:00 with the press conference of Bosnia & Herzegovina's band Regina.
Be with us again tomorrow!
Check out our YouTube channel for video reports of all rehearsals! Later this week, we will upload exclusive interviews with the participants as well.
