In the today’s Eurovision event the semi final allocations have been drawn in the City Hallo of Vienna. Kati Bellowitsch and Andi Knoll have conducted the draw to determine which country will participate in which semi final and if it’s in the first or second half.
As a kind of tradition there will be a hand-over of the keys by the lord mayors from the ex-host city Copenhagen and the new host city Vienna tomorrow. The host broadcaster ORF will also utilize this occasion to welcome the EBU and the representatives of all the participating countries for the first time. This special event has been created to allocate the countries into the two semi-finals.
After Conchita Wurst’s glamourous victory in Copenhagen last year, her career truly took off like a phoenix! Even if her second song “Heroes” has been released several months later, she has been the topic in many news until today.
One of the last big secrets for this year is the revelation of the hosts. The Austrian broadcaster ORF has officially announced the names of next year’s hosts in Vienna. There will be three female hosts plus Conchita Wurst as a Green Room host! These are: Alice Tumler, Mirjam Weichselbraun and Arabella Kiesbauer. Let’s hope that all the girl power will spread out the Austrian charm throughout the world.
