Of course I had to watch the actual performance, something I never thought I have to do again. How did that not qualify? Chicken's favourite if I remember.
I did, and do, love a bit of "Salad Break". Big Bird deserved to qualify although the Jerry Sadowitz lookalike was quite creepy the way he pawed at her through the performance.

Still the longest pair of legs ever seen at Eurovision as far as I can remember.

*still holding fast with my rehearsal blackout......I'm quite proud of myself.

I think the Ukrainian giant might be dressed as a tree.

He said his costume was 'spectacular', and there are rumours that the staging will be focused on Zlata's journey through an enchanted forest

Hmm.. perhaps some kind of Lord of the Rings idea? https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/i...fa8LttGxQ8JwE9

I'm sorry but if SVT have given an exclusive to the EBU to have first reveals then that is that. They can't check escxtra every second to make sure the volume is muted. It will all be allowed come Friday so they should just have patience.
Exactly. If they're going to have a blanket ban on recording the first rehearsals then they can't let anyone exploit any loopholes or else everyone'll be taking advantage. Either do it properly or don't bother, I say.

Well done Armenia -- no silly backgrounds -- concentrating on the song...

Hungary -- not a fan of the background -- it will prob. be distracting...

Israel -- Background gets a thumbs up -- dress not so much...

According to escXtra, Margaret Berger is struggling vocally. I know it's only her first rehearsal, but I did fear she'd struggle without her duplicate backing track that she had at MGP.

They're so cute I just wanna squish them. I think the performance has more impact than this clip suggests - the camera angles will make this pop.

Also here's a birds-eye view of the stage during Bulgaria's rehearsal: http://www.eurovision.tv/save-files/...mosphere-1.jpg

The stage looks absolutely minuscule from there.
Wow! The stage DOES look tiny doesn't it?!
I absolutely love it though and it's making me wish I was going to Malmo! Would get a great view of the artists, even on the side seating!

Every indication I've seen is that the stream is finished for the whole contest. We won't be seeing it back.

Its funny ain't it, you see different sites hate on a artist every year no matter how well they do. Guess people get set in their ways and some of the people hired by theses sites often appear as class A knooobs .

Saying that I was worried about Margarets performance, should be up soon

They have probably been told from the start of the contest they can't do it till friday and they ignored the warnings

She did have problems with her ear piece, most have said that. After every break the first on has had such issues, which is naughty SVT.

Indeed, that sounded fine to me.

I can't stop looking at her figure. She is so stunning.

I think we need to see a clip of her falling apart on stage in the final third before deciding whether to worry or not.

Ukraine has gone past it now. I think it's overrated too.
