Compared the last ESC in Copenhagen 2001 the opening sequence is fabulous. There is a real touching music and production which really well done by DR.
Even if the arena has fewer seats than last year in Malmö, the impression of the stage and the light is appearing bigger and more modern. The stage is probably the best stages ever not only from the look also from its technique. If you are interested in the stage design by Claus Zier, you can find a special video in our media gallery.
In the beginning there will be snippets from different people around the world who have sent in their singing to the organizers. All the hundreds of people singing “Only Teardrops” in a special, very emotional way, and they are forming a big choir. All images are flying to Copenhagen on a virtual map of the world. Then Emmelie de Forest will be singing her song “Only Teardrops” accompanied by a big choir on stage. The LED background will show all the singing faces.
Then the hosts are welcoming the viewers and spectators in the arena. There will also be a special review of the older songs with a “Eurovision Guinness Book of Records”. In-between the song presentations there will be commercial breaks for some broadcasters, so this is being shown in the breaks. We can expect the records in the longest tone, highest hair, the highest shoulder pads and the most used silver.
The interval act is a special dance combo which shows all technical features of the beautiful stage. T here will also be a short film about Copenhagen, as "Wonderful Copenhagen" is one of the main sponsors this year.
For all who cannot watch the show on TV there will be several internet streams.
