Lisbon blog: Day 9, Monday 7 May

Reporting for OGAE UK and Vision magazine we have Hass Yusuf (words), David Ransted (photos), and along with Robin Scott who’s helping us out, especially with any videoing. This blog will be updated throughout the day.

It’s Eurovision week! Today we’ll have a full dress rehearsal of Semi-Final 1!

But before all that let’s catch up with some of David’s pics.

The first dress rehearsal has now finished. Besides the 19 songs, the acts from Spain, UK and Portugal were also recorded. SuRie was ace as usual. It’s going to be a great semi-final – and unfortunately it’ll mean some excellent songs won’t make it through as there are more than ten worthy ones that belong in the Grand Final. But such is life.
