The team at have arrived in the host city of Vienna, ready to bring you the latest news live from the Eurovision scene. Today we’re here at the first Eurovision 2015 rehearsals, ready to bring you the latest updates on location live from the Wiener Stadthalle.

Following a short break, Finland and their representatives Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät were next to rehearse on the Eurovision stage in the Wiener Stadthalle. The performance, including outfits, are pretty much the same of that from the Finnish national selection, Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu, back in February.

Plenty of lights and smoke are included in the Finnish performance with a number of amplifiers appearing beside the band on stage.
