Denmark are pinning their hopes on young rock band A Friend In London this year, and optimism and a buoyant mood are evident as New Tomorrow is performed on stage. The Danes have great ambitions for their entry this year and are leaving nothing to chance.
Time to hand the stage over to one of this year's more noticeable entries - subtelty has never been understood by the Belarussians, and this year's entry is no exception. I Love Belarus is so over the top and kitsch that it's borderline cool and ridiculous!
Next on stage was Estonia. The Baltic country was very successful between 1996 and 2002, but since the introduction of the semi-finals it could only reach the final once in 2009. Now the Estonians have high hopes in Getter Jaani.
Maja Keuc is perhaps the voice of today's rehearsals and anticipation surrounding her performance was huge. Needless to say, she did not disappoint turning in one stellar performance after the other leaving fans and press alike enraptured in the hall.
