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.

The 2015 Greek representative Maria Elena Kyriakou was the sixth artist to rehearse on the Eurovision stage today. Maria will perform in front of a circle of blue lights which appear on the backing LED screen.

Maria is wearing a shiny silver and black dress on stage and is accompanied on stage by a pianist, who is also the composer of the Greek entry One last breath. Not many pyrotechnics are used during the performance, but Maria manages to fill the stage with her strong vocal performance.

The first impression of Greece’s Eurovision rehearsal can be found below.

We asked members of the press around the centre what their first impressions were of the Greek rehearsal. Find out what they had to say below.
