So, the first semi-final is now over, but there is only limited time fro us to reflect as we move straight on to the preparations for Thursday’s second semi-final. The first full dress rehearsal begins at 14:00 local time (15:00 CET), and you can follow all of the action right here with our live blog.
This will be our first opportunity to see the postcards for the remaining countries, and the first time we see a full run through to see how the running order affects the show, and how smoothly everything may go.
The second semi-final will see 18 nations compete, but with (as always) only 10 spaces available in Saturday’s Grand Final.
The running order will be:
- San Marino
- The Netherlands
