Speech bubbles with oh and uh written inside also appeared on the LEDs that were surrounding a very colourful stage scene.

Valentina Monetta started the press conference by stating that her second rehearsal was much better than the first one. "I'm excited, it was great to perform in the stage costumes for the first time", she added.

The press conference host asked about the previous songtitle, Facebook, and he wanted to know where the change came from. The composer, Ralph Siegel, went on to answer this question: "We got the message from the EBU right after we entered the song. It sounds like a commercial message, they said. It was a big problem for me, as I was out of town, and we didn't have much time to change it. But now we are really happy to be here."
