The team of oikotimes.com has decided to bring a small change this year in the reports of the two rehearsals for the semifinals and the final. The first dress rehearsal of each show will be reported in terms of what we predict for each country based on vocal, choreography, camera work, audience reaction and finally our estimation. The jury rehearsals of course will include all the details as the participants will try to convince the national juries to vote for them! Interviews will keep uploaded on oikotimes.com while backstage stories and city highlights will be presented throughout the days for you. We have also a small addition for those days. The team of oikotimes.com in collaboration with Host City Copenhagen will visit some restaurants and city sights to bring you a totally personal and details report on the food, drinks and highlights of the city!

While this year there will be no report from the third dress rehearsal which anyway has no point because it’s purely technical and with performances made just for setting the final details for the cameras and the sounds we will bring you live report of the semifinals and the final. Each show morning we will present you the results of Europrediction 2014 at www.oikotimes.com/vote. After the semifinals we will bring live press conference streaming and outcome of the results of the order of appearance for the final.
