After the first dress rehearsal for semi-final one was held this afternoon, it was time for a second rehearsal this evening. Some of the acts might have a bit more nerves on as this is the rehearsal the juries will be basing their points upon.
Here you can get to know the guys of Koza Mostra and Agathon Iakovidis a bit better. Have you ever wondered what kind of music it exactly is they do? They tried to explain it to us in this video interview, which was recorded in 3D.
Yesterday we saw the first rehearsals from the six automatically qualified finalists. In this video you can hear some impressions from the rehearsals from Spain, France, Germany, United Kingdom, Italy and Sweden. At the same time you can see a bit from the press centre.
Italy finished today's rehearsals of the big 5 and the host nation Sweden. After their return in 2011 with a second place in Düsseldorf and a 9th place in Baku San Remo winner Marco Mengoni also belongs to one of the pre-contest favourites. Could he fulfill the high expectations?
The anticipation was huge in the press centre for home boy Robin's first rehearsal today. He has turned in a consistently brilliant vocal performance, but his song is surprisingly not appreciated by as many. Would his first run through win him wider support?
Petra Mede will be the hostess of the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest shows. Today she was introduced to the media at a press conference in Malmö. She was joined by show producer, Christer Björkman, and scriptwriter, Edward af Sillen.
On after an underwhelming Spain is the turn of French fancy Amandine Bourgeois with her sultry song of vengeance, L'Enfer et Moi. Any members of press who were taking a disco nap at their desk were soon woken by this charged performance.
The relationship between the two countries haven't always been the best, but that is in the past now. In this video you can see this year's Greek participants, Kosa Mostra feat. Agathon Iakovidis, perform the chorus from the Turkish entry from 2004; For Real.
Cezar took to the stage for Romania's second rehearsal of It's My Life. Every gimmick you can imagine was put in to this three minute performance which viewers will surely remember either positively or negatively.
