Good afternoon everyone! Today at 1700 CET, the first dress rehearsal of the first semi final will take place. This is the first time we will see the introduction videos, the presenters on stage, the post cards, the interval acts and how the songs all run together. Stay with us for all our thoughts of the action from the Globe Arena!
Languages. Flags. Numbers. Three of my favourite things. So it’s really no surprise that I am a fan of the Eurovision Song Contest! I’ve been obsessed since 1989 when I turned on the TV to see this strange show with people from different countries singing in different languages wearing sparkly outfits and then voting on each other’s songs! I was instantly hooked! I’ve now been to ten Eurovision and looking forward to number eleven in Israel. My favourite Eurovision song of all time is ‘Quand je te rêve’ by Céline Carzo (Luxembourg 1990). I’m pretty sure no one else can say the same thing!
