Sieneke, the Dutch Eurovision Song Contest representative has cancelled plans to speak at her first press gathering following the Netherlands' technical rehearsals. The decision was made by her doctor who is concerned about her throat.

Sieneke had a very strong first rehearsal this morning, with many in the press centre convinced that The Netherlands will return to the Eurovision Song Contest final for the first time since 2004. Despite her good vocals on stage, she has been ordered not to speak at the press conference.

The head of delegation took questions, explaining that a real Dutch Organ weighs approximately 1600 kilos and it was too expensive to take one to Oslo for the performance, which is why the new 'Human Organ' was created.

Sieneke will attempt to pass through the Eurovision Song Contest semi final for the first time since they were introduced in 2004 whehn Re-union qualified for the grand final, finishing 20th. Since then, Glennis Grace, Treble, Edsilia Rombley, Hind and De Toppers have all failed to qualify. Hind was closest to getting through, finishing in 13th place in her 2008 semi final.
