Boat trip with the Big Four plus Norway

Posted 28 May, 2010, 13:32

Powered by eurovision.tv. A special boat trip on the Oslo fjord on board the famous Christian Radich ship was organised for the delegations of France, Germany, Spain, United Kingdom and Norway. All invited artists gave a live performance and there was a special event for everyone to witness. Watch the videos of all five performances and read some quotes from the artists below. The impressive Christian Radich tall ship is one of the world's most famous fully rigged ships. It is in fact considered to be a Norwegian national institution nowadays. The ship has been used in the 1958 movie Windjammer and also the TV series The Onedin Line. Upon arrival on board, guests were treated to strawberries and champagne amongst other culinary treats. The artists from the five countries performed on a makeshift stage set up on top deck of the ship. All five performed their respective entries in Europe's Favourite TV Show, with a couple of different versions amongst them. Lena from Germany gave an acoustic rendition of Satellite, whilst Daniel Diges from Spain gave a blues style twist to Algo Pequeñito. A surprise for all of those lucky enough to be attending was that the official airline Norwegian.com arranged a special low flyover of a Boeing 737-800 plane. It flew as low as 500 feet at it's lowest level.
