Eurovision time!

It is the time of the year when the Eurovision Song Contest isheld. Next week will be the official Eurovision week. After the mid-week semifinals there will be the grand final in Oslo, Norway on Saturday evening (Central European Time).

I have been a huge fan of the Eurovision Song Contest for many years, but now being in Asia I have not been following very closely which songs the national jurys have selected. I know, however, that Finland's entry will be a folk song called 'Työlki ellää' by duo Kuunkuiskaajat (in English 'You can also make living by working' by the Moon Whisperers). I am not sure if I like the song. It is a bit too similar with last year's winning song from Norway.

Google has developed a website for the real enthusiasts. It predicts this year's Eurovision winner based on number of Google searches.

And if you are really into Eurovision Song Contest, it is possible to watch it live next week here.

And those who can't get enough, despair not. Our Sound - the Asian version of Eurovision Song Contest will be held in the latter part of 2010.
