Tonight it all starts!
We’re having even warmer weather today but I can see thunderclouds building up over the mountain so I guess it might be a noisy nigh ahead of us. I don’t want to close my bedroom window so I hope that if it starts it does so before I go to bed tonight.
The Eurovision song contest starts tonight with the first semifinal. This year we are making it so big that countries with less budgets never will get a chance to even come close to what we’re doing. To be honest, the semifinals have fewer viewers but still in the intermission between the songs and the vote counting (tele-voting in all countries) Justin Timberlake will sing!I can’t stop wondering what they will have in the big final show on Saturday if he only sing in a semifinal?!
The stage and equipments are so heavy that the arena, Globen (the Globe, looks like a giant golf ball) now has sunken with 3,5 cm (1 2/3 of an inch) 🙂 Even if we don’t know what songs will be in the big final (well six countries are there already, the five that pays most to the EBU and the winner from last year which is us this year), there are still favorites to win it all. The biggest one is Russia. I can’t say it is my favorite but it is good. The top five on the betting businesses are right now Russia, Ukraine (very odd song and it sounds like the singer sing one song and the band plays another 🙂 ) Sweden, France and Australia. Yes Australia is a member of the EBU (European Broadcasting Union).
My personal favorite beside Sweden of course is Australia. We’ll know on Thursday night if she made it to the big final. It is time to get something to eat and perhaps I’ll watch the beginning of the semifinal but I must up at 5 am tomorrow so I won’t see it all.
Have a great day!
