Spain's hopes rest on the shoulders of former X Factor participant Ruth Lorenzo. She gave a first rehearsal that was vocal perfection and which got certain press members highly excited.

All eyes were on Basim today as he took to the stage for a second time to perform the song that has Denmark singing Skuba duba dab dab didi daj in unison. His first performance was lacking the spark and energy we've seen him deliver previously so he had a great deal to prove today.

Molly suffered slight technical issues during her first run through but went on to deliver a fantastic first rehearsal to boost british morale. Would she pull of another solid set of rehearsals today to prove that the United Kingdom is in it to win it this year?

It was time to put on our moustache as Twin Twin went on stage for their first rehearsal. France's is not new in sending these type of songs which creates one big party on stage. Will France turn the tables around and achieve a respectable placing?
