Tonight is the night! The biggest music show of the world will be broadcasted tonight at 21.00 CET and ends around midnight. This year there are 36 countries to give their votes, even if they are disqualified in the semi-final. The excitement is great. The winner is really unpredictable this year. This mega event holds 85.000 m cable for lightning and around 1.000 lamps. Tonight the show will be broadcasted live in 36 countries, but many other will watch it, too. In Australia it will be shown on Sunday night, there is a huge interest in Down Under. There is going to be a great Eurovision Party at Federation Square in Melbourne. Other countries - even from Europe - have no interest at all like Bulgaria. It won't be broadcasted and it looks like that Bulgaria will never ever take part in the competition, according to a Bulgarian journalist. There will be 100 million expected viewers, but there are more, in the arena there are 7.500 people, as well as on the Eurovision Parties in Hamburg, Madrid and Istanbul (Taksim square).

About me: Due to the fact that my parents are musicians, I have a gained a great enthusiasm for music. Since 1979 my interest in the Eurovision Song Contest has grown enormously. My first ESC I joined was in Dublin 1995. Six years later I founded the website eurovisionlive.com in the year 2001. The most fascinating part for me is the original idea of the Eurovision Song Contest – the peaceful contest of the European countries. I am very happy that I have the chance to contribute my little part for the greatest music show in the world.
