Oslo, Norway -

This Saturday the first rehearsals of the countries that have already qualified for the Final of the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest. This meant Josh from the UK, Daniel from Spain, Didrik from Norway, Jessy from France and Lena from Germany took to the stage.

Today the Telenor Arena hosted the second rehearsals of artists from Azerbaijan, Ukraine, the Netherlands, Romania and Slovenia. And traditionally, after every rehearsal, they also had their press conferences.

But today not only did we see the second rehearsals of those five countries but also the first rehearsals of the contestants from Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Spain and the Host Country of Norway.

Tomorrow it'll be the last day of open rehearsals, meaning the artists from Ireland, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia, Georgia, Turkey, Spain, Norway, the UK, France and Germany.

By the way, the last five countries will have their press conferences next Friday due to the Welcome Party held tomorrow evening.

    Hello again! In my country I heard one of the Eurovision songs on the radio yesterday. I was really surprised, because I didn't think that radio channels deal with the Eurovision Song Contest. Now we have to wait only two days for the first semi-final!!! :D XD report to the moderator

    Hi! I'm from Hungary and I was very sad when I heard that my country didn't send a singer or a band to the contest. But now I'm happy, because in Hungary one Tv channel will broadcast the Eurovision Song Contest! Good luck to every nations!
