Welcome back to the Eurovision Diary!

My name is Ola Melzig, and I’m the Technical Director for the show, responsible for lighting, sound, staging, rigging, automation, LED, projection and pyro, so I’ll have my hands full, for sure.

Bookmark this page to get your daily updates - they will appear in order of the most recent news first, going backwards. If you've missed any days, there is a menu on the right. We'll stick to the format from previous years, where we post the daily news from what happened the day before, because we work late and don't want you to miss anything from the previous night!

So this is for you, dear readers. WELCOME to our daily lives.    Yours truly, Ola Melzig, Technical Director

YES WE ARE! DONE DONE DONE!

This is yours truly, posting for the very last time on the 2013 edition of the Eurovision Diary.

But I can't sign out without posting the credit list. Here are all the wonderful people that were involved in making the BEST Eurovision Song Contest ever.

God bless y'all!
