EUROVISION 2021 – An extensive amount of rehearsal time is needed for the three live shows to run smoothly. There may be an audience of some 183 million viewers and with such big numbers, the producers of the show want to be sure every camera angle is carefully planned.
From lights, sound, on-screen graphics, props, cameras and special effects — it all has to come together with precision.
To smoothen the process once the artists arrive for their first rehearsal, the production team normally holds three to four days of stand-in rehearsals, during which music students mimic each act in great detail.
A recording is being shared digitally with each delegation so that they can already share their first feedback before even leaving their country.
In this post, we can bring you the stand-in rehearsals from Croatia, Israel, Malta, Azerbaijan, Czech Republic, Russia, Latvia, Lithuania, Ukraine, Italy, Slovenia, France.
