Expo Tel Aviv sees the fourth day of rehearsals, with the 2nd half of the second semi-final evening unfolding on the impressive stage of Expo Tel Aviv. The rest eight countries of the 2nd semi final that will rehearse today, following yesterday’s first set of nine countries, are Croatia, Malta, Lithuania, Russia, Albania, Norway, The Netherlands, North Macedonia, Azerbaijan.

Albania rehearses just before the break. The winnner of   Festivali i Këngës 57, Jonida Maliqi, is representing this year the country with a song referring to the immigration and refugees , entitled  Ktheju tokës. Can Jonida continue last year’s good results and make it to the final once again for Albania?

Jonida takes to the stage wearing one of the most detailed dresses we’e seen so far this year.

Her dress is black , with short sleeves and low scoop neckline. The skirt is opaque, with several horizontal strips in black. The golden patterns in the front give an Egyptian touch  to her overall outlook.
