This is the live blog for the Jury Rehearsal of Semi Final 1 on which juries will give their scores.
The blog will be updated throughout the show.
Sweden: Robin sounds better than he has all week. Choreography as slick as usual.
Georgia: Tamara can be very happy with that performance. Flawless vocals, big voice.
Australia: Isaiah with mostly fine vocals, maneuvered himself in trouble with ad-libbing at one point, but recovered quickly.
Albania: Lindita held the long note with ease. Overall solid performance.
Belgium: Just like earlier today Blanche is in good form and looks with determined focus at the camera. Sublime!
Montenegro: Slavko bouncing around the stage, making clear his performance is not only for the juries, but the fans in the hall.
Finland: Very solid performance.
Azerbaijan: Very cool performance, vocals perfect.
Portugal: Salvador using his soft voice like an instrument with precision and passion.
Greece: For juries Demy sings the chorus in lower register and without backing singers. Clever move.
Poland: Kasia with a powerful, flawless, dramatic, even angry, performance.
Moldova: Fun performance. As it has been all week.
Iceland: Svala's hand got stuck in her cape at one point. But it didn't affect her at all. She is a professional!
Czech Republic: Martina can be very happy with that performance. Pitch perfect.
Cyprus: Much better than earlier today. A little out of breath towards the end, understandably.
Armenia: As fierce and professional as she has been all week.
Slovenia: Omar with a solid performance.
Latvia: Triana Park with a good performance getting cheers from the audience.
Greece: Due to 'technical difficulties' Demy gets to perform twice. Chorus in lower register again.
