Eva Rivas's first press conference, after her rehearsal was a busy affair. The head of delegation explained that there was a strong pedigree to the song, from the writer Karen Kavaleryan, to the various backing singers, and the flute player that will be joining the Armenians on stage for the dress rehearsals early next week.
It's not often that the delegation from Bosnia and Herzegovina have a party, so Eurovisionary jumped at the chance to attend.
The embassy is on the 5th floor of a building on the fashionable Bygdøy Allé. Many of the other embassies are loacted around here in this leafy suburb too. The party itself was in the roof garden above said embassy, and it was a gorgeous evening, with not a cloud in the sky. It commanded excellent views of Oslo Fjord on one side and the hills, complete with Holmenkollen ski jump, on the other.
In the afternoon on Thursday the 20th the Icelandic ambassador held a recpetion at the embassy for the Icelandic Eurovision-team. Hera Björk and her backing singers entertained and the Finnish duo stopped by to say hello. In this gallery you can see pictures from the reception.
Lithuania became the first of the participants for the second semi-final to meet the press. They entertained - and became entertained when a Scottish journalist handed them some underwear! Pictures from this press conference can be seen in this album.
Aisha representing Latvia met the press after her first rehearsal. She was gathered by her backing group when she answered questions from the Eurovision press. See pictures from Latvia's first press conference in this album.
