The arena for this year's competition is actually not located in Oslo but in a municipality nearby. This means, that in fact this year, it'll be held in two cities - Oslo and Fornebu.
Telenor Arena is a popular place and to prove that, just last night, a football match was held in the arena. However, as you might presume, a good floor is needed there, to stage Europe's favourite in some weeks.
So, by around 6:00 CET this morning, the floor was redone and the grass was covered to create a solid one. To be sure everything's all right and secure, the police then had a bomb squad and sniffer dogs present to clear all the lighting equipment, trailer by trailer.
Finally, the keys of the arena were officially handed over from the owners of the hall to the Executive Producer of this year's Europe's favourite TV-show, Jon Ola Sand. This meant the preparations for the Eurovision Song Contest in the Telenor Arena could get into full swing. All set, ready to go!
Have a look of how the arena looks like right now, in our gallery below.
