The participants of the semi-final have already arrived in Helsinki and all of them have now been on stage. There will be many hard working days to come for the all participants stuffed with rehearsals, sound checks, interviews, etc. The atmosphere is still quiet, as there are still journalists and delegations to be expected.For the first time the press centre has a the flair of a chill-out-zone. There is plenty of space for meet and greet as well as enjoying the international ambiance. We are glad to present our first interviews with Hungary, Estonia and Georgia, which you can easily watch on our media site. The Eurovision excitement has caught Helsinki now and it’s going to be a very uplifting and interesting time.

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.
