Gerry Ryan will be missed by Ireland as a whole

There were a lot of things that people didn’t predict were going to happen before the curtain went up on the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest. Few thought Ireland would claim its third victory with the two rock'n'roll kids and nearly bankrupt RTÉ. And even fewer thought that Riverdance would become one of the biggest shows in the world.

The sensations of Melodifestivalen 2010

We now know the result of the four semi finals, and boy was I wrong in my predictions. I made the huge mistake of thinking that the viewer’s would vote exactly like they did last year. Then they voted all the big stars through to the final. But this year something has happened. The big question is what?!

How hard can it be?

Yes, how hard can it be to select a bunch of great songs sung by good singers and let them compete against each other in a national final well set up? Apparently it is very difficult this year.

Welcome to Sweden, Melodifestivalen 2010 is Here!

As a Swede, I’m waiting with excitement for the Melodifestivalen season to start. All the artists and composers have been announced, so as of right now we’re just waiting for the party to start. And meanwhile there are of course speculations among the Swedish fans, about who will surprise us this year, and who will be the winner of Melodifestivalen 2010?

Dima Bilan or Elena Paparizou?

On 5th October 2009 in Berlin, the MTV European Music Awards was held. Two of the most famous Eurovision singers, Dima Bilan and Elena Paparizou were nominated for Best European Act, Russian and Greek. In the voting, Dima Bilan took a better place then Elena Paparizou. But, the winner is......

Take That, Europe!

This year, the BBC showed Europe that actually, they and the United Kingdom do take the Eurovision Song Contest seriously. They persuaded Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber, possibly the biggest name in musical theatre, to write the song and head a talent search for the winner.

The unwritten rule of the Netherlands

Travelling to the Netherlands three or four times a year I have realised that they have an unwritten rule that lie as a duvet over the whole country. It has to do with Gerard Joling – and De Toppers – and I can’t live up to it.

What about changing the formula for the oldest running TV show currently showing??

The concept of a song written only for the Eurovision Song Contest is more than 50 years old, and it could do with a facelift.

No overlap with Champions League, thank you!

Until EBU makes up their mind and move the dates for the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest fans are discussing if it really is impossible to have the two things on the same evening. The answer is a clear yes!

What Will It Be?

I’m very sorry to say that I will not be able to join my team-mates of EuroVisionary in Moscow for this years Eurovision Song Contest. Instead, I’ll be following the rehearsals and press conferences via Internet this year. Right now, I really wish I was there, but I guess I have to settle with the next best thing, my computer.
