It’s getting quite busy here at the Crystal Hall in Baku. More and more people arrive and almost all of the singers have had their rehearsals yet. With the given format of the stage in particular the shape, which is extremely angular, the size and illumination songs can get better or worse compared to the video clip or national final.
There will be many traditional dancers and drummers in the interval act of the first semi final in a thriving and enthusiastic performance, wearing traditional costumes as well, percussion performance and traditional pipes fill the arena with emotions. This is what Eurovision is also about, having a look into different country’s music scenes and the appreciation of every country’s differences.
The official opening of the Eurovision Song Contest took place in the Euroclub last night, a huge hall with a large dance floor, restaurant, VIP area and outside terrace. To give this event a little bit more glamour there has been a red carpet on which the delegation could enjoy the flashbulbs of cameras and TV cameras. This tradition exists since 2010, when this has been introduced in Oslo.
The Azerbaijani cuisine is not well known outside the country. Therefore it’s an important point for visitors what to expect in this country from the culinary point of view. First of all, the temperatures are very high from spring to autumn, so there is a cuisine compared to the Eastern Mediterranean cuisine like in Turkey.
After all the individual rehearsals and press conferences it’s now time for the first dress rehearsal of the Semi Final 1. In fact there are two dress rehearsals today one at 6pm and another at 0am; everybody needs to get used to the -4 hours time different to GMT. That will be the same for the live broadcast on Tuesday night.
