Almost four weeks to go until the delegations are going to arrive in Lisbon. The rehearsals will start for the 63rd Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon, Portugal. Now the host broadcaster RTP has reviewed this year’s entries and decided the running orders together with the EBU reference group. As in the previous years the running order are being set instead of a draw. This will keep up the excitement and avoids that too many ballads or fast songs will played after another. So every entry will have the best spot to shine.

About me: My first Eurovision I watched was in 1987, Brussels. Since then I am following the ESC with great enthusiasm. The greatest fascination for me is the fact that the entire Europe is watching the show at that specific night. Since 2010, Oslo I am a member of the eurovisionlive.com team. I had the chance to witness the second German victory with Lena. My biggest wish would be to have the orchestra back, as it used to be until 1998.
