The Sunday was quite calm here in Kiev. No drama happened, but one of the Irish background-dancers was fallen from stage during the press conference. The German singer Gracia has arrived with her delegation. DavidBrandes belongs now to the Swiss delegation. The rumour about Albania's participation has not been proved true. It was just a media-joke to bring Albania into focus. Otherwise nobody would remember her strange song.The team of eurovisionlive.com has utilized that beautiful sunny day to explore the city of Kiev. It was really worth it. In the evening the first receptions have been held: Slovenia and Belarus. The Belarusian party was hard to enter - only V.I.P. people were allowed to get in at the beginning, after a British journalist has complained. For the first time there were singers from the final: Chiara from Malta and Helena from Greece. Here is the official stamp with Ruslana!

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.
