The city of Antwerp in Belgium was the host once again of a number of delegations for this year's Eurovision Song Contest. Last Friday, seven Eurovision hopefuls performed in a Eurovision party that was attended by journalists and many fans.

Eurovision representatives from Armenia, Belgium, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Greece, Ireland, Malta and Serbia met in central Europe and promoted their respective entries towards Oslo. The artists gave a number of press interviews and the fans had the opportunity to meet with the artists and enjoy the performance of their song for the Eurovision Song Contest.

Almost all the participants appeared on 'Studio TVL' show broadcast on the Belgian channel TV-Limburg. The Icelandic representative Hera Bjork was one of the artists that had to fly to Belgium but she couldn’t make it due to the volcano eruption that left the airspace in Iceland close. The main highlight of the promo weekend in Belgium was when the seven Eurovision hopefuls performed in the second edition of the Pink Nation concert.

The artists presented their Eurovision entries and in particular Vukasin Brajic performed his new version of the song Thunder and lightning.
