Today was the day of this years favorites. One of them - without any doubts was Carola from Sweden. She came to the arena and saluted the audience personally. She could convince even her reviewers with her professional and friendly personality. She talked about her life, her Eurovision experiences and her enthusiasm for the Eurovision Song Contest. She really enjoyed that gig and already number one in the Swedish charts for several weeks. Her compatriot Sandra Oxenryd who is singing for Estonia also did a brilliant job on stage today, the choreography is convincing and the song is fresh and buoyant.
For the greatest attention provided the Icelandic singer Silvia Night! She is having a big pink court shoe on stage which she is using as a slide. Her extravagance and strange behaviour was not appreciated by everybody. At her press conference she looked like Mary Poppins wearing a white sunshade and having bodyguards. She replied grudgingly and bitchy to the questions of the journalists. One journalist has been carried out by the bodyguards. Hopefully it was just a promotion gag.

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.
