What else is on today?

Our photographers and video crew will again be around all day. Like in the previous days, photographers Alain Douit and Indrek Galetin, and our video crew consisting of Jan Demulder and Wim Dehandschutter will make sure you won't miss anything of the rising tension in Belgrade. Now that there is footage available of each rehearsal, our team will show you more of what is happening behind the scenes, dive into the press conferences, and talk one-on-one with the stars of this year's Eurovision Song Contest. Do not miss anything of the official Eurovision Song Contest channel on YouTube.com, where you can find loads of footage! You can also find the videos embedded in our news updates, ánd in the Eurovision.tv MediaLounge.

Our surprise

We already announced it yesterday - in cooperation with YouTube.com, those contestants who applied for it, are being equipped with a small but sophisticated camera device, which they can use to record video instantly, anywhere, at any time. Their videos are being collected by the Eurovision.tv crew, and offered to you through the official Eurovision Song Contest channel on YouTube.com.
Enjoy another day of Eurovision Song Contest buzz, eight days before the Final!
