I repeat myself again, but hey?
I have to agree that the stage looks like something from X-Factor/The Voice/various talent sow. Is this where ESC is headed?
Not by any means a bad stage, I quite like it. I just think it's to "TV-show"-esque. Not quite what I expected. Great and updated and all, but still TV-show feeling to it.

And I agree with Peter. Why is there a greenroom? How small do they want the arena to be? How will the audience fit?
I wonder if the people who complained last year about the small arena and not getting seats will complain this year to?

Predicting a winner? Who's the favourite?

ESC 2014 is getting closer. But un-like last year or 2012 there still doesn't seem to be a run-away favourite to win. In fact there are several favourites talked about. So this post will be a run-through

I actually like the song. It was probably the last time a French ballad managed to still convince the audience about it's powers. A true´proper ESC-power ballad.
Despite that I thought there were better songs that year. Like "Dzuli" from Yugoslavia. Great song.

What I think made it win was the fact that in that year there were many favourites. Not just one but many spread out.
And when that occurs it's more likely than not that a completely un-expected song wins it all, since all the favourites sort of cancel out each-other.

That being said, anyone knows what Ms Hermés is up to today? Does she still perform or what? I haven't heard anything about her.

An archive is a glorious way to celebrate Eurovision and as such should be available for both fans and non-fans.

To depend on the individual broadcasters sounds as a bad idea. First of, many of the broadcasters hasn't participated for that long. So what could they possibly contribute with?
And secondly, not all participating countries take such an huge interest in the contest as others take. Some countries are interested, some are really not into ESC at all. For instance the difference between Sweden and some other countries.
This could lead that some countries won't contribute at all.

The EBU as an organisation should take sole responsibility.
