@15:22 The three hosts of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest met the press at the B&W Hallerne today to talk about their roles and to present a very special song they have recorded together: the somewhat comical 12 Point Song.

@14:52 In Copenhagen is sunny, but in B&W Hallerne when lovely Ruth performs is rainy and emotional - only on stage of course. Here you can find more photos made during her rehearsal.

@14:21 As soon as the stage performance starts, it looks like Emma is having a "live gig" with her band. Still, it all looks more glamourus than the performance in some club. Check it out yourself!

@14:13We want a strong, powerful performance this time. Our team came up with the concept based on glam rock from the 70s combined with some futuristic elements”, Nicolo Cerioni who is in charge for the stage direction together with Leandro Emede explained. Find out more in the following article.

@12:52 Finally a short preview from the first rehearsal for Basim. The Danish stage presentation very much focuses on Basim and his entourage on stage: two dancers, and three backing singers come supporting artists.

@12:35 While we are having a short break in B&W Hallerne, let's check our first backstage video for today. Enjoy and let us know what do you think.
{Video#YT, id: QJuK7QnCJw}
@12:22 Basim this year's contestant from Denmark was, as always, in a good mood and smiling backstage. He had his first rehearsal at the B&W Hallerne in Copenhagen today, where the pressure was on for the young artist, who is represting his country on home turf.

@12:10 The whole performance of the French band TWIN TWIN is very colourful and catchy. The very first tune sounds funny and makes you dance, and sing with TWIN TWIN "Moustache"!

{ImageGallery#Preview:107463}
@12:04 Denmark will be rehearsing in some minutes too."The song is about a girl I meet and have a crush on. I try and do everything I can in order to get her to love me, but no matter what I do, it just feels like a cliché, and that is the theme of the song. But there is a twist to the song", explains Basim.
{News#Preview:107453}
@11:55 Lorent, François and Patrick wore colourful and flashy clothes: “We’ll try this combination today,” François told, and Patrick told about his make-up: "It takes origin in Africa, Tanzania and means that I am my own master." Here's a sneak peek from their rehearsal.

@11:48 Eurovision.tv met the French participants backstage: “We arrived Yesterday”, Lorent, one of the singes started to sing Beatles’ song.

@11:39 As in all rehearsals taking place in the Eurovision arena, it is the final one that includes any pyros or special effects. That was also the case with Molly's Power To The People.
{News#Preview:107363}

@11:33 As early as 17:00 CET, the host city Copenhagen will start warming up on the City Hall Square. From 17:50 a live broadcast will follow the events on the red carpet – both on a big screen on the City Hall Square and on Eurovision.tv. More details in the following article.

@11:25 Molly takes centre stage in front of the drummer, with two backing vocalists each side of the drumkit. There is some dry ice, creating a fog effect at the opening of the song. Check it out and let us know what you think!
{Video#YT, id: I7EryaOFh3E}
@11:19 More photos from the arena! Elaiza's stage performance. Is It Right sounded really good girls!

{ImageGallery#Preview:106723}
@11:11 We will be having french contestants on the stage soon. With its bouncy melodies, a healthy sense of gimmick, and the liveliness of its lyrics, Twin Twin is a perfect example of the YOLO (You Only Live Once) generation.

@11:02 Molly took the job of creating a song for the Eurovision Song Contest very seriously and says the song "needed to be a big concept. It can't just be a nice song, it's got to be a little bit anthemic. So I came up with six or seven ideas in the space of 48 hours and this one just stood out." Let's take a look what's going on in the backstage this morning!

{ImageGallery#Preview:107343}
@10:54 It take a lot of effort to make the performance perfect. Molly and her team knows it quite well.
