Today we saw nine more performances from the first semifinal. It is too early to make a good verdict on the songs, but I think I have witnessed the first major disappointment and a positive surprise today.
After the success of the Preview Party last year, we were all expecting a good evening of entertainment when fans of the Eurovision Song contest gathered at the Scala in London on 17th April. EuroVisionary bring you a report from the party.
Mihai Trăistariu, who represented Romania at the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest will, as a guest blogger on EuroVisionary, be sharing his opinion about this year’s 42 participating songs. In part one of four he looks at Albania, Andorra, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia and Cyprus.
It’s almost here! Very soon, the delegations will arrive in Moscow and rehearsals will begin for the 54th Eurovision Song Contest. The question on everyone’s lips is who will be celebrating participation in the final, and who will stomp off in a huff?
After a marathon selection process which began on 2nd October, Bulgaria finally selected the song to go to Moscow. The winner was Krassimir Avramov with Illusion who will then be representing the country at the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest. Bulgaria has been drawn for the first of the two semi-finals.
Tonight will be yet another busy evening as Norway, FYR Macedonia and Bulgaria each decide on which song will be representing them at the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest. Aside from that Sweden and Spain offers interesting preliminary heats in their search for the right song.
The semi final of Be a Star, the Bulgarian national selection show, takes placetonight after a long break since the heats and quarter finals. Eighteen songs will compete for 9 places in the grand final.
