Eurovision flash mob mania to hit Oslo and Düsseldorf

Eurovision flash mob mania to hit Oslo and Düsseldorf
Recording of the flash mob in Barcelona
Oslo, Norway -

Last week, we revealed that the interval act of the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest will feature your appearance at flash mobs all over Europe. Today we can announce a test-shoot of the special Eurovision Song Contest flashmob dance at Oslo's Rådhusplassen, at 17:30 local time today. We can also announce the first city outside of Norway where the flash mob mania will hit; On the 23rd of April, Düsseldorf's Burgplatz is the place to be!

Peter Svaar, Head of Press for the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest on behalf of host broadcaster NRK, said: "We want to share the Eurovision Song Contest, rather than just broadcast it. With 18,000 people live on location in Oslo dancing, plus video footage of large flash mob groups from ten major cities, the song, the movements, the arena, and all the cities will share a common musical experience together."

Earlier, flash mob recordings took place in Barcelona and Reykjavik.

Today at 17:30 local time, NRK will hold testshoots for their European tour at Oslo's city hall square, the Rådhusplassen. If you're planning to join, subscribe to the event on Facebook or simply join by surprise! If you're joining, know your moves and check out the instruction videos below:
