The rehearsals for the three shows of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest started today at the B&W Hallerne in Copenhagen. The ten first songs of the first semifinal did their debut on stage today in the first rehearsals of the year. The six remaining acts together with the five first of the second semifinal will take the stage tomorrow, second day of rehearsals.

An amazing stage has been showing all its power all day long. Here are some pictures that eurovision.tv published in Instagram during the day:
