Today, Eurovision officially begins! We’ll see the first dress rehearsal and the jury show. In this live blog, we will keep you updated on the first dress rehearsal.

As per usual, we will not focus on the performances in this blog. Instead, we will inform you on the general outlook of the show: presenters, postcards and the interval acts. Brandon McCann is your commentator this afternoon.
