Today Max from Germany could enter the stage. As always he was singing with closed eyes. "This voice is fantastic" was the main reaction in the audience during his first appearance on stage here in Istanbul. Honestly he really is great on stage and the atmosphere is touching - the stage looks beautifully and it's glooming like lava at the end. Max deserves a good ranking. The song is unusual for Eurovision but In a very positive way. But the competition is high and depending on who is qualifying for the final - think of the Ukraine and Greece - Max won't have it easy!

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.
