Now the rehearsals of the finalist have begun. Many people longed for the appearance of Six4One from Switzerland. It will be the first country on stage in the order of appearance on Saturday. This year the most known composer and lyricist will be at Eurovision Song Contest again: Ralph Siegel & Bernd Meinunger. New rules allow composers and lyricists from other countries to submit their songs. Switzerland is represented by six different nations - only one is Swiss: Claudia D'Addio, the others are from Sweden, Malta, Bosnia-Herzgovina, Israel and Portugal. The stage gig is quite unspectacular compared to other countries. Instead the strong voices and the catchy melody do convince.
Moldova presents a real holiday reggae, admittedly the choreography looks a bit clumsy. We may expect a better dance performance during the dress rehearsals. The A-Cappella group from Latvia disappointed on stage, but not during the press conference. They don't use any technical help like records, band or anything like that, they just rely on their voices. Norway has a perfect show and many people like it here.

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.
