The first 10 songs have been chosen form the first semi-final on Tuesday. Now it’s time for the next 10 songs to qualify for the Grand Final on Saturday night. As there will be 17 entries tonight, seven have to go home. But this is part of the game. Only one entry can win the Eurovision Song Contest.
The opening act is “Forward Unlimited” a break dancer names Redo and the Dutch singer Eefje de Visser. The show will continue with the 17 participants and the lovely postcards from all over the country. This time, the Eurovision history will show Duncan Laurence, Izhar Cohen, Getty Kapsers from Teach In, Ruslana, Nicole and Niamh Kavanagh. Even Helena Paparizou is sending her greetings. In the interval act the Dutch organizers have put a dance act called “Closer Encounter of a Special Kind”, two Dutch people come together, one classic ballet dancer Ahmad Joudeh in a silver skirt and a BMX-bicyclist Dez Maarsen with a big dance ballet.

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.
