Junior Eurovision 2023: Watch the exclusive rehearsal footage from today’s second rehearsals!

The preparations in Nice for the 21st Junior Eurovision Song Contest are on fire and it is now a wrap for the fourth and last day of this year’s technical rehearsals. Following their first rehearsals on Wednesday, the representatives from the remaining seven out of the sixteen participating countries, took the stage of Palais Nikaïa today for their second rehearsals.

The second rehearsals gave the opportunity to the delegations to fix any mistakes spotted on the first rehearsals as well as to help the young artists feel more safe and familiar with the big stage. Meanwhile clips from this rehearsals’ stage will be used in the recap video for the first phase of the Online Voting, which is conducted before the show and will commence in just a couple of hours.

The first and second rehearsals were not open to journalists and we could only take a glimpse of what the young artists have prepared via photos. EBU has just uploaded through the official Junior Eurovision channel in YouTube a recap of today’s rehearsals. Specifically, we will have the chance to watch exclusive TV footage of today’s rehearsals.
