Eurovision 2014 Day 5 - San Marino's second rehearsal

Valentina Monetta's use of the shell prop on stage became much more visible today, with effective use of lighting, providing some interesting contrasts. For such an understated and demure number, could the shell be percieved as overkill?

Eurovision 2014 Day 5 - Moldova's second rehearsal

Multi-talented musician Cristina Scarlat will be rehearsing Moldovan entry Wild Soul. Even though Cristina is a lead performer of the Presidential Orchestra in her country, she looked a bit strained during rehearsals last Tuesday. Could it be the tension from finally fulfilling what she confesses is her ‘most persisting dream'?

Eurovision 2014 Day 5 - Belgium's second rehearsal

Cherub faced Axel Hirsoux from Belgium gave a powerful, heart wrenching vocal performance on Monday, but the staging was just a little too static. Would we see changes today and would he still be sporting his trademark tuxedo on stage? 

Eurovision 2014 day 5 - Ukraine's second rehearsal

Mariya Yaremchuk carries herself with real charm in Copenhagen. On the opening night of Euro Club last Monday, she performed, in full choreography with her two dancers, not only her entry for Ukraine, Tick-Tock, but also a fantastic rendition of 2009 Moldovan entry, Hora Din Moldova, which apparently is one of Mariya's favourite Eurovision Songs.

Eurovision 2014 Day 5 - Azerbaijan's second rehearsal

Azerbaijan's Dilara Kazimova gave a breathtakingly simple yet stunning performance of her entry the first time round. Would Start a Fire smoulder and set the stage alight today or would it simply peter out? They normally have some spectacular stage gimmick up their sleeve so we waited with baited breath for a big costume reveal.

Eurovision 2014 day 5 - Russia's second rehearsal

The Russian twins, Anastasia and Maria, gave a beautiful rendition of their song, Shine, during the opening night of the EuroClub on Monday night. It will be interesting to see whether there will be any changes to their presentation for the second rehearsal - will the slightly messy intertwined ponytails still be there for example?

Eurovision 2014 Day 5 - Albania's second rehearsal

Hersi is back for her second rehearsal of One Night's Anger today. The albanian delegation did quite a bit of experimenting in terms of backdrop and staging the first time round, so it would be interesting to see if they had made any decisions ahead of today's rehearsal.

Eurovision 2014 day 5 - Iceland's second rehearsal

With their humour and personability, the Icelandic participants, Pollapönk, won over everyone present for their appearance at the Euro Fan Café on Wednesday. Today we will have the chance to see whether their enthusiasm levels are still high as they polish the presentation of their song, No Prejudice, during the second rehearsal.

Eurovision 2014 Day 5 - Sweden's second rehearsal

Sweden's Sanna Nielsen was back for her second rehearsal, one of the most anticipated of the day. Would today's rehearsal be just as polished as those we saw first time around or would Sanna Nielsen end up coming undone?

Eurovision 2014 day 5 - Estonia's second rehearsal

The third participant to take to the stage for their second rehearsal is Estonia's Tanja. Just like she did in the Estonian final, Tanja impressed everyone during last Monday's first rehearsal with her ability to give a strong vocal performance while, at the same time, carrying out a very athletic dance routine.
