somehow i'd love a good german ballad, from Germany


rock influences, someone who performs it with heart and soul


i'd give a shoutout for Karat, Silbermond those bands are as germans say ''Mega Geil''

i also give shoutout for past esc alumni from 80's Nino de Angelo, despite his COPD illness he still has a very strong powerful emotional vocal, but due to his illness that would rule him out since he is risk category sadly so he would have to opt for live on tape option then

can we pray for Kazakhstan to debut and replace Belarus?


far less controversial country, and also one who can add to the diversity of the contest

my pick for United Kingdom, if i had a role within BBC


Matthew Morrison (we know he can perform, sing quite well live, also has potential for a nicely produced pop song) + not too big for ESC either, and not unrealistic given his connections in BBC, greatest dancer


can see him suiting a pop song ala Mans Zelmerlow


also way more charismatic than a James Newman, Michael Rice

italian delegation in Geneva



From left to right: Claudio Fasulo, Deputy Director of RAI Uno, Simona Martorelli (RAI), Felix Bergsson (RŕV), David Tserunyan (AMPTV), Martin ÷sterdahl (EBU), Carla Bugalho (RTP), Yuval Cohen (KAN), Sietse Bakker (NPO), Astrid Dutrenit (NPO), Frank-Dieter Freiling (ZDF).

(Note: Claudio Fasulo isn’t on the Reference Group and Alexandra Redde (FTV) who is, is absent from the photo.)

The Reference Group is made up of elected Heads of Delegations, executive producers from previous Host Broadcasters and the ESC Executive Supervisor from the European Broadcasting Union (EBU). It’s their job to steer the Contest from Host to Host.

The triumphant Italian Head of Delegation, Simona Martorelli, shared her excitement about Italy’s chance to host the world’s biggest music event:

'There is a lot of enthusiasm around the Eurovision Song Contest in Italy. This victory is combined with a sentiment of rebirth that Italy really needs. We’re looking forward to working with the Reference Group on producing an incredible ESC in Italy in 2022.

In the story of Eurovision, my favourite song is ABBA’s Waterloo and my favourite Italian entry is, of course, Maneskin’s Zitti E Buoni!'

Dismissing the old proverb ‘all roads lead to Rome’, Simona revealed the number one item on her agenda:

'Our first task is of course to find a great Host City over the summer for next year’s show.'

Eurovision Song Contest Executive Supervisor Martin ÷sterdahl welcomed the Reference Group to the EBU headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland:

It’s great to finally be able to welcome the Reference Group to Geneva and meet in person for the first time in over 18 months.

The handover between the previous and next year’s Host Broadcaster is always a special moment and even more so this year. We’ve reflected on three spectacular shows in Rotterdam and are excited to welcome the team from RAI onboard and already looking forward to what they will bring us in 2022.

The countdown to Italy 2022 begins!

latest news so far

- EBU and Turkey are in advanced talks of a comeback after 10 years




Netherlands has a possible sensation in the making, one of our reality stars/presenters/singer Dries Roelvink wants to take part for us, and teased about his entry being actually very good, better than people know of his usual style


apparently bit in italian, and this is what he released, few months before the tease, a version of the classic Il Mondo

Youtube video
Click to view this video on Youtube




July 2nd that tweet, back then was 80% complete, and week after that he went to italy to finish off the last bits and details



translating: he himself is amazed how scarily beautiful it becomes

How is the Athens 2006 HD Cut different from the Contest that was broadcast?

As the high definition footage was never intended to be broadcast, there are a number of differences that viewers will notice

Not all of the cameras used in the Athens experiment were able to film in high definition (like those attached to some telescopic cranes) and so in this cut the difference in picture quality becomes apparent very soon on

The new HD technology is used from the opening seconds of the film: sweeping shots of the audience that are so crystal clear it’s possible to pick out individuals from the event that took place over 15 years ago

Something else fans will notice is that this is not a 'broadcast’ version of the show complete with postcards, on-screen graphics and all the bells and whistles that were added on top of the standard definition broadcast version at the time

However, in this version fans will be able to view the never-seen-before transitions between acts – some captured in full HD. The clear-up required after Daz Sampson’s Teenage Life to make way for Anna Vissi’s Everything is a spectacle in itself

this saturday, part of eurovisionagain on youtube livestream on esc official channel
