The second dress rehearsal of the semifinal took place last night and it has been quite impressive. In the arena the show appears differently than on TV. Generally said, it's going to be very very colourful - from pop to rock, from folklore to kitsch. It's like a big candy-box. But exactly this is what people want from Eurovision. The hosts are a bit worthy, a bit goofy - the interval act is as always with lots of dance and acrobatics. The postcards show impressive images of the new Ukraine.

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.
