The day of the first two dress rehearsals is over. The Greeks are really going to make a magnificent show. Many things are flying in from the sky: a big golden bullet larded with people on it, as well as the hosts Maria and Sakis.
At the right beginning Helena Paparizou is presenting her new song as well as her winning song "My number one".
The show went smoothly without greater breakdowns, on time only Maria forgot her words. Many artist were dressed in white, so the final won't be extremely colorful like last year. The choice of the songs shows a great variety: anthems from Sweden and Greece, ballads from Russia, Ireland and Bosnia-Herzegovina, crashs from Finland, Romania and Croatia. But there will also be surprises like Germany, Spain or Turkey.
This year somebody very special is opening the voting: Nana Mouskouri! The Interval Act is aesthetic and very Hellenic, lots of dance and filled with gorgeous moments.

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.
