From the snippet alone you can tell Ronela is going to give a fierce performance!! With topless male dancers and bursts of steam, this is looking like one hell of an epic Eurovision show opener!!

Citi Zēni are really brining in the full colour palette with their slick outfits and those shiny shoes. The band are giving their performance full energy, just like we would have expected!

Monika looks amazing, all very similar to her performances on 'Pabandom iš naujo! 2022' which worked extremely well for her. We will be getting 100% Monika with her performance.



Switzerland - Marius Bear - 'Boys Do Cry'

The self confessed half Swiss, half Aussie Marius Bear is keeping it nice and simple for his performance of 'Boys Do Cry'. Just Marius, the stage and a spotlight which looks very effective matching the mood of his entry.

Slovenia - LPS - 'Disko'

The boys from LPS are giving us one of the biggest props on the Eurovision stage this year so far, a massive disco ball! 'Disko' is looking like a very slick entry.



Ukraine - Kalush Orchestra - 'Stefania'

Kalush Orchestra are staying true to themselves. From what we can tell there will be a lot of yellow and blue lighting reminiscent of the Ukrainian flag. Extremely glad to see the band on the Eurovision stage!!

Bulgaria - Intelligent Music Project - 'Intention'

Are you after fire and flares? Then Intelligent Music Project are for you this year. The Bulgarian band are giving us the ROCK this year on the Eurovision stage with their entry 'Intention'.

Netherlands - S10 - 'De diepte'

From the snippet it looks like S10 will be giving up a very simple yet haunting performance, making great use of the lightning and smoke.

Moldova - Zdob și Zdub and Frații Advahov - 'Trenulețul'
