The Ramus have gone for their iconic yellow and black. On a stage filled with balloons and smoke this is a banger of a show opener for semi-final 2.


Israel - Michael Ben David - 'I.M'

Michael Ben David giving us another high energy performance. From the snippet we see mirrors, lots of lights and Michael with his back up dancers all clad in white. It's going to be shamazing!


Serbia - Konstrakta - 'In corpore sano'

Looks like Konstrakta will be giving us a very mesmerising performance. Elements reminiscent of her national final performance. And she has a soap!


Azerbaijan - Nadir Rustamli - 'Fade To Black'

Nadir has a powerful voice, and it looks like it's going to be on show for this performance! Great silhouettes and staging in this one.


Georgia - Circus Mircus - 'Lock Me In'

Circus Mircus bringing us the quirk in the first half of semi-final 2. One of the band members have a box, I wonder what is inside?


Malta - Emma Muscat - 'I Am What I Am'

Emma is who she is, clad in pieces of mirror and crystal. The stage lighting is impactful and the piano makes it to the stage! YES!

San Marino - Achille Lauro - 'Stripper'

The staging for San Marino has more on offer than what Achille Lauro is wearing! Fireworks? Check. Flames? Check. Mechanical bull? Sure! What a chaotic performance, cannot wait to see this in its entirety.


Australia - Sheldon Riley - 'Not The Same'

WOW! The Australian delegation said they will bring the light in, in Sheldon's performance and they truly have. Sheldon is wearing a white outfit and has a new mask. There are lot of stairs too.


Check out our article on Sheldon's first rehearsal here.


Cyprus - Andromache - 'Ela'

Aphrodite eat your heart out, Andromache is here. The staging looks to be inspired by Sandro Botticelli's painting 'The Birth of Venus' and it really seems to work very nicely with the song.



There you have it! Do you have any new favourite based on the snippets so far?


Rehearsals continue tomorrow with the second half of semi-final 2 featuring Ireland, North Macedonia, Estonia, Romania, Poland, Montenegro, Belgium, Sweden and the Czech Republic.
