The moment we have all been waiting for has arrived. The Eurovision Song Contest 2021 from Rotterdam is about to begin. The first semi-final with 16 participating countries will be broadcasted at 21.00 CET live from Rotterdam, The Netherlands. The show will be broadcasted by the official TV stations in all of the 39 participating countries.
The viewing figures in the semi-finals are not as high as in the Grand Final, so the televoting results will be coming from people, who are really interested in the show. The 50% jury voting also not to underestimate, as these guys in the juries are the same like in the Grand Final. They have listened to the songs a lot of times and will judge and taking more things into account like singing qualities, approach, melody, song quality.

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.
