The 42 delegations have arrived in Kyiv for the Eurovision Song Contest 2017. The first nine countries, from the first semi-final, will rehearse for the first time today. The following days, all the contestants will rehearse on the big stage at the International Exhibition Centre. The rehearsals give Eurovision-fans a first sneak peek at the staging and the performance of their favourite act.

I will try to keep giving regular updates on the rehearsals and on my thoughts about them. So keep checking my blog for more!
