Welcome back to Rotterdam (and the online press centre) for what is now day 6 of rehearsals in the build up to Eurovision 2021.
And it’s an exciting day for all of us at OGAE UK, as it’s the first chance we’ll get to see James Newman in action, as the UK – along with the rest of the Big 5 plus Netherlands – have their first rehearsal this afternoon. He is up from 5:15pm, and with Spain not finishing until 6:25 we’ll start our daily Zoom round-up at 6:30pm tonight
Aside from those six, we’ll also see the remaining song of Semi final 1 (Malta), plus the first nine songs from Semi Final 2 (San Marino, Estonia, Czech Republic, Greece, Austria, Poland, Moldova, Iceland and Serbia).
Adrian, Alasdair, Danny and Hass will be here throughout the day to guide you through a very busy day in Rotterdam!
