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

 Hi kids!

I hate when I have to do this but I need to skip today's update! Crazy busy but more importantly, I have to prepare for our CREW BBQ!!!




But I thought I'd leave you with a nice language lesson for the day!

Finnish for the beginners: 
järki = reason, sense, intelligence
järjestää = organize
järjestelmä = organization
järjestelmällinen = organized
järjestelmällistyttää = organizationalize
epäjärjestelmällistyttää = unorganizationalize
epäjärjestelmällistyttämätön = having unreflectional attention to antiunorganizationalize
epäjärjestelmällistyttämättömyys = unreflectional attention to antiunorganizationalize
epäjärjestelmällistyttämättomyydellä = with unreflectional attention to antiunorganizationalize
epäjärjestelmällistyttämättömyydellään = with his unreflectional attention to antiunorganizationalize
epäjärjestelmällistyttämättömyydelläänkö = is it with his unreflectional attention to antiunorganizationalize?
epäjärjestelmällistyttämättömyydelläänköhän = I wonder if it is possible, with his unreflectional attention to antiunorganizationalize?
epäjärjestelmällistyttämättömyydelläänköhänkään? = I wonder if it is possible, even with his unreflectional attention to antiunorganizationalize?

Lyckä til!
