After an exciting first semi final it is now time for the other 19 countries of the Semi Final 2. Today there will be their first dress rehearsal. Judging by the experience of the former years, there won’t be any big changes, the same introduction, salutation and jokes. The only thing which changes is the interval act. Let’s hope that the hosts will be prepared a little bit better and get used being on the ESC stage by now. The highlights of this semi final will be: Dino Merlin from Bosnia & Herzegovina, Nadine Beiler from Austria, Eric Saade from Sweden, Dana International from Israel, A Friend In London from Denmark and Jedward from Ireland.

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.
