Today it is time to kick off the second and last round of rehearsals. It is now last chance for the delegations to make the changes that might required in order for their participant to stand out from the crowd.
After a period of three years without qualifying from the semi-finals it is time for Croatia to call upon a very experienced and well respected artist to try and change that streak and with the sort of big-voiced and dramatic ballad that everyone expects from a Balkan country.
Today will be the longest day so far with the representatives from a total of 10 countries rehearsing on stage and meeting the press afterwards. One of these is Sweden's Loreen. Will she be able to live up the favourite role she has?
We continue with another ethnic sounding club tune. Sofi Marinova from Bulgaria was last to rehearse today in the Baku Crystal Hall with her song which preaches the message of love without prejudice and boundaries.
Filipa Sousa was shining brilliantly at her first rehearsal on this afternoon. Together with her five backing singers she left a very strong impression performing her song Vida Minha (My Life). Is she poised to bring her fado-inspired song to the final?
