SOLNA (STOCKHOLM) SWEDEN – Welcome to the dress rehearsal of Melodifestivalen 2015 through which the country will decide its participation tomorrow night for Vienna. Tonight at Friends Arena we have 28,000 spectators cheering for the artist while the hosts are making impressive opening with Conchita Wurst.


Simple staging for the boy band JTR but good camera work for their performance. OK we have confetti but that doesn’t save the performance I’m afraid

Salut! Born just a few days after Marie Myriam's last victory for my homeland (that's a sign), I've been an ESC fan since Zagreb 1990. In late 2013, I was lucky enough to join the Oikotimes team and even attended my very first contest in situ in Wonderful Copenhagen. Then it was Vienna, Sofia, Stockholm and soon it will be Valletta and Kiev. More to come...
