Another dramatic night in Copenhagen took place in the B&W Hallerne. The arena was sold out and the atmosphere was amazing. Even the hosts were in a very good mood and enjoyed the tension, in-between the acts they made photos with the fans.
Beside of the results – the Austrian entry “Rise Like A Phoenix” by Conchita Wurst has received the utmost biggest applause, the entire arena was singing “Conchita, Conchita”. If the audience in the auditorium would have determined the winner, it would have been Austria. The biggest surprise was that Israel did not make it into the Grand Final, but Belarus.
These are the last ten countries for the Grand Final: Austria (1st part), Belarus (1st part), Finland (2nd part), Greece (1st part), Malta (2nd part), Norway (1st part), Poland (1st part), Romania (1st part), Slovenia (2nd part) and Switzerland (2nd part).
These countries did not make it: Israel, Georgia, Lithuania, Ireland and FYR Macedonia.
The Australian interval act was warmly welcomed and there was even a live broadcast from Sydney showing people at 6 o’clock in the morning watching the Eurovision Song Contest.
The organizers also asked for funny dance performances and the best 26 have been invited to dance in the interval act.
There might have been a technical problem, one part of the big LED wall showed another image from time to time and the third part of the “Guinness book of Records” was not ready so all songs have been played another time in a recap even if the voting has been closed already.
It’s going to be a very exciting Grand Final on Saturday.
