Today's rehearsal from home grown talent and favourite Sabina Babayeva made quite an impact for a number of reasons. Her dress caused quite a sensation in the hall and she delivered an impeccable performance with three run throughs of consistently high quality.
Today is going to be a very long and busy day for the Eurovision journalists in Baku. 11 rehearsals, 7 press conferences and the welcome party tonight is awaiting. For the first time the big5 countries plus host country Azerbaijan will rehearse.
Are you surprised to hear that Crystall Hall is still not ready? Well, in a country like Azerbaijan you need to have a good portion of patience. The starving press is finally beginning to get something to eat and the shuttle busses works from time to time so things will probably get done in the end.
Today 13 countries will get another chance of finishing the last details before it kicks off with the semi-finals next week. Who are ready and who has more to work on? Follow EuroVisionary as we guide you through all the rehearsals today.
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.
