It’s getting more and more exciting with all the national pre selections. Until now we have 15 entries and 25 more to come. This weekend there will be five national finals and two semi finals. It can be expected that there won’t be any big changes for some of the existing songs (Denmark, Estonia, France, Iceland, Italy, Netherlands and Switzerland), but other entries (Albania, Belarus, Cyprus, Georgia, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta and Serbia) are still under reconstruction or there are changes. Albania has just changed the complete song. Until March 15th all entries must be delivered to the EBU in the final versions and big changes will not be possible anymore. That means it’s too early now to make any judgements.
At the end of the upcoming weekend we will have five more songs. The first country will kick off tonight: Ireland will have the national final in the late night show “The Late Late Show”, which will be broadcasted at 22.25 CET. Austria is going to held it’s second round with six candidates who have to undertake several challenges.
Another exciting final could be expected in Hungary, after several semi finals of high quality entries we will know the winner on Saturday – Kati Wolf, the singer from Hungary in 2011 “What about my dreams” is one of the finalist.
The popular UMK show in Finland will also broadcast the big final on Saturday night, as well as Slovenia and Moldova.
Not to forget the 4th heat of the Melodifestivalen in Sweden coming from Örebro. One of the hopefuls is Måns Zelmerlöw with the song “Heroes”. Måns has made several attempts to represent Sweden. He is also very well known hosting the annual Skansen concert in Stockholm in summer.

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.
