Even though this day says May 15, I am writing it on May 16, the day of the FINAL LIVE BROADCAST! If the show is not broadcast where you live and you want to see it, go to www.eurovision.tv and follow the instructions to watch the live feed! It starts at 21:00 Central European time.
Now back to yesterday......
First day of final rehearsals, and people start to get really nervous..... Not us, but the delegations, and there are a lot of last minute changes requested. We're here to make them happy, so if the request is doable and makes sense, we're doing our best to fulfill their wishes.
WE ARE NOT HAPPY UNTIL YOU ARE NOT HAPPY!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!
The Gurd turned 50 yesterday, so the entire FOH was full of balloons, garlands and God knows what.
Remember Pushkin? Well, he came to the venue yesterday for a tour. He LOVED what he saw!
He was operating the Barco Encore system during the first Dress Rehearsal, and thought it was quite fun.
But he REALLY freaked out when he saw the seat we fixed for him for the second Dress Rehearsal.....
Cirque du Soleil in action during the opening of the Final. I love this shit! I saw my first Cirque show back in 1999 when I went to La Nouba in Orlando,and I've been in love with this group ever since. Take my honest word for it, you do NOT want to die before you've seen one of their shows!
Jade Ewen performing ¨It's my time¨ , and YES, it IS Andrew Lloyd Webber behind the piano!
Here she is! Yohanna from Iceland, performing her song ¨Is it true?¨ Check out the Dolphin jumping in the clouds in the background! MAGIC!
Johannes Wahl IS our Anti Crisis boy!
And here are the Crisis boys...................
Check this out! This is our FAVOURITE bar in town.......... It's TRUE!
We even rehearsed winners in the Green Room while votes are counted. Here's Tanel pretending to be from Armenia.
Now, we only have the Broadcast left.........And then of course the load out, but THAT is a complete different story!
Over and out from Moscow, I hope you will enjoy the show tonight!
