The time has come for the big final tonight. At exactly 9pm (CET) the biggest live TV show of the world is going fill the living rooms with entertainment and excitement. 25 countries from all over Europe from Iceland to Azerbaijan and from Portugal to Israel will take part in the unique TV spectacular. Almost two weeks of rehearsals, press conferences, parties and two thrilling semi finals are coming to an end tonight in Moscow. For Russia and Moscow it’s the once in a lifetime opportunity to attract about 100 million TV spectators and 16.000 people in the Olympinsky Arena with the best Russian image, which is possible, the biggest stage ever. Everybody is interested how the Russians will handle this mega event. 25 countries compete against each other in a friendly and exciting competition. For the first time since years, the juries will be back and determine 50% of the result. There will be plenty of Eurovision parties not only in Europe, also Australia, New Zealand and Qatar are going to broadcast the 54th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. Due to the fact, that there is not a clear favorite this year anymore, it’s going to be very exciting. Is it Norway, Azerbaijan, United Kingdom or Bosnia & Herzegovina? It will probably be one country, which nobody had on it’s list.

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.
