Semi-Final day with Sjonni's Friends

Posted 14 May, 2011, 13:01

Early start with Sjonni's Friends

We join Sjonni's Friends early morning at their hotel, where the plan for the day is discussed. We are also treated to a jam session in room 330 where Sjonni's Friends only this week recorded a cover version of Johnny Logan's 1980 winner What's Another Year, as a result of how popular the impromptu version went when sang at their press conference.
Then follow the guys on their bus ride in to the arena, where a special guest was waiting for them with a treat in their dressing rooms.

All of the reaction before and after the show, the emotions and celebrations are captured in the video below :-
