Normally the names of the hosts are known quite early after the draw of the running order. The official announcement, who is going to welcome Europe in the night of the nights, is now confirmed. Nobody knows why, but this is probably due to make it more exciting. This year it’s going to be the first time in Eurovision history that we are having four hosts - two for the semi finals and two for the final. For the two semi finals there are Natalja Wodjanowa (a Russian top model) and Andrei Malachow (Russian TV star). For the final there are Alsou (singer, also in ESC 2000 with „Solo“, second rank) and the actor Iwan Urgant. Let’s hope that the TV spectators won’t get confused by so many faces.

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.
