There is not much time left for the semifinal's decision. Who is going to make it into the final? Only 10 countries from 23 can qualify. There are some clear favorites, but as always there definitely will be some surprises tonight. The excitement is rising from minute to minute and many people twanging nervously through the press centre. Now it's all in the hands of the televoters!

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.
