There is a huge LED light wall behind the stage which offers all imaginable images which might be possible. Last year there has been no possibility like this, because there were only very few LED lights used on stage, due to the costs. In Moscow 2009 there might be the largest LED wall ever. This year it is going to be used again. With this technique everything is possible, creating different atmospheres for each song e.g. candle light, waterfall, fish in an aquarium, city lights, etc. This year the delegations have chosen very beautiful backgrounds and also very different ones as well. Bulgaria uses water drops which look quite real and Georgia uses colored church windows which appear like a mystic horror movie. So everything in the background can support the singers and the songs or not. Some countries do not use the LED lights at all to bring more concert character to their contribution.

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.
