Since today the rehearsals and press conferences have started. There were some difficulties like the press centre and the stage havn't been finished yet. It is expected that it's going to be more exciting from tomorrow on. Not all of the participants and delegations have arrived in Istanbul.

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.
