Norway is very proud to host this Eurovision and you will see this in all the three upcoming shows. The first dress rehearsal this afternoon proofed the good work of the production team. All in all it’s a felicitous show with many emotional moments. In the intro there are glooming balloons everywhere, accompanied by contemporary music and images. The three sympathetic hosts do the normal welcome and the show begins. Nicely made postcards show people waving flags in their home countries with the most significant sights. Backstage scenes are also integrated in the concept, so it will increase the tension. The interval act of the Semi Final 1 is a film about typical European music, at the end a choir on stage gives the finish. After that the 10 envelopes will be opened and the qualifiers will be announced. This exciting part is moderated by Nadia, one of the female hosts.
