Denmark | Leonora teaches us that 'Love is Forever' at Rehearsal
Over the past two days we've seen all the countries participating in the first semi final rehearse, but now we're on day three it means that it is time for the countries in semi final to take to the Eurovision stage. Today the first half of the semi final will have their first rehearsals so make sure to stay with us as we update you on all the performances and staging as the Eurovision Song Contest gets even more real!

The seventh country to rehearse today is Denmark, who will be represented by the perky Leonora and her song 'Love Is Forever'. Denmark have qualified for the last two finals after a period of poor results and will be hoping to build on that momentum for a third finalist in a row.
The quirky Leonora was yet another surprise National Final winner back in February, winning Dansk Melodi Grand Prix ahead of fan favourite 'League of Light'. However, since her win, the cutesy midtempo has wormed its way in to many fans hearts! Interestingly, this is not the first time she has competed on the European level as the 20-year-old used to be a professional figure skater - even winning the gold medal at a Danish championship! Having performed in cafes, libraries and small school venues, Eurovision is definitely a step up but accompanied by her giant chair we have no fear she won't knock it out of the park!

DENMARK - FIRST REHEARSAL
Unsurprisingly, Denmark is another country that has pretty much just provided us with a carbon copy of their national final performance. The giant chair is back, the ladders the backing singers use to get up to the chair are back too. All dressed the same - Leonora looks cute her white shirt & black braces with a smile on her face.
Not much to say on this one ... she looks and sounds good and the backdrop is also as you would expect. Very happy, very colourful and almost childish - little floating clouds, etc. Still unsure on how this will do but it could surprise.
Denmark's second rehearsal will take place on Friday 10th May and they will be performing seventh in the second semi final on Thursday 16th May.
