Sun sets in Baku and the first Eurovision week is coming to an end. The week we have been all waiting for is soon here!
In the first week, all the countries rehearsed on the stage twice. First rehearsal was 40-minute long and mainly focused on technical issues such as lighting and cameraworking. Second rehearsal was a bit shorter, 30 minutes and then artists paid more attention to the performance and singing. Videos from the rehearsals can be found on eurovision.tv's official YouTube channel.
Last night the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 was officially welcomed to Baku and the Welcome Reception was held at Euroclub. Some pictures are below and more you find here.
But the first week was only beginning and soon every Eurovision fan's favorite week is here! More than eight hours of live show will be broadcasted around Europe. Every semi-final and the grand final are preceded by three dress rehearsals, two of them a day before and one just hours before the live show. Second dress rehearsal is the one where juries will vote (*).
