What happened today in Kiev: Day Three

Every night around 23:00 CET, we summarize the events that occurred in Kiev. On this third day, we saw The Voice of Australia Anja Nissen on stage for Denmark for the first time and had a surprisingly strong runthrough by The Netherlands.

In What Happened Today we close off the day with an overview of the most important facts and videos. Have you been working all day? Or you did not have time to follow the rehearsals? Everything you may have missed – you can catch up every night in this article.

All the songs in rewind!

We start of this rubric every night by taking you back to all rehearsals that we have seen today. During the first round of rehearsals, we are not yet allowed to enter the venue and film the artists. We can however use the footage of the EBU and show you all songs of today in rewind.

OG3NE blows the competition away

Arguably the best vocals that we have heard in these three days come from OG3NE from The Netherlands. The staging and camerawork was also pretty good, and most of the people in the press center think that The Netherlands is now a sure qualifier.

Anja Nissen finally on the Eurovision stage

Here dream finally came through. Today The Voice of Australia Anja Nissen got to perform a song on the big stage of the Eurovision Song Contest. There was much discussion about the clothes she wore during ‘Where I Am’, whilst this took away the other good parts of her performance.

Positive vibes from Nathan Trent

Nathan Trent showed some great camera skills in his rehearsal for Austria. ‘Running On Air’ will surely get points because of his sympathy. Austria was one of the best received entries of the day.

Romania will completely change their act

‘Yodel It!’ went to Kiev as one of the outsiders for a good and high position. But after a very messy and ‘over-the-top’ rehearsal, their odds have lowered. However, they told us after the rehearsal that they were not happy with it themselves as well, so Romania will probably make a lot of changes for their second rehearsal later this week.
