What should have been the second Icelandic press conference turned into a fabulous Eurovision party with Sjonni's Friends as our hosts. Judging by the reaction by the press we are very likely to be going to Reykjavík next year as they received the biggest ever applause here in Düsseldorf.
Today offers second and last ordinary rehearsal from both first and second semi-finalists. We kicked off with Iceland and ends in Moldova. EuroVisionary will of course cover it all, but you can already now prepare for what is coming up.
The speedtalking Irish duo left the press puzzled last evening. Is it brilliant or just plain silly? In this video you can hear them sing their entry Lipstick and talk about topics such as girls; in particular two Slovak twins came up.
Today we start the second round of rehearsals for the semi-finalists. It is now the last things needs to be settled in order for it to look good for the semi-finals on Tuesday and Thursday next week. With 13 countries on stage today it will also be the busiest day so far.
At last evening's first Swedish press conference the Swedish team had to meet the press after a somewhat challenging rehearsal. In this video you can hear their answers to some of the more interesting questions.
At his first press conference Eric Saade was asked to sing some from his favourite Swedish entry. As he didn't remember the lyrics to The Ark's The Worrying Kind he instead asked for permission to sing his own song, Popular. He was of course allowed.
Some returning visitors will know that we, here at EuroVisionary, often like to end our interviews with asking the "victim" to ask themselves a question and answer it. Today 3JS, realised that we can also ask it at a press conference.
Yesterday the prize for most original press conference certainly went to Portugal - this video will show you why! They don't want to listen to speculations about if they will make it to the final or not as they have already won what they came here for.
With the programme for day 3 starting in a few minutes we will now get to see the countries located in the second semi-final on stage here in Düsseldorf for the first time. Check our schedule to see what we will be covering for you today.
