Eurovision Ireland has been handed a copy of the rehearsal schedule for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest earlier on today by an unknown source.
First rehearsals kick off with each country getting a 40 minute slot. On the first day next Tuesday, Italy will open the day and Poland will close it. Ireland, Cyprus, The Netherlands, Israel, Macedonia and Malta will take the other slots.
On Wednesday, Russia will open the day and Australia will close it. Ukraine, Albania, Belarus, Bulgaria, Armenia, Georgia and Serbia will take the other slots.
Second rehearsals kick off next Thursday with each country getting a 30 minute slot. Poland will open the day and Italy will close it. The other countries will also rehearse in a reverse order to that of Tuesday.
On Friday, Australia open the day and Russia will close it. Just like Thursday, the other countries will also rehearse in a reverse order to that of Wednesday.
Dress rehearsals one and two take place on Saturday using the participating artists. The final dress rehearsal will use stand ins on Sunday morning before the live show in the afternoon.
