Ola Melzig arrived from Sweden to Lisbon, 9 months ago to work in Eurovision as director of technical production.
In a interview to the portuguese media Diario de Noticias he left very good impressions about the work of the portuguese staff in a country he didn't know very well, since he brought with him an espresso machine: "It was before knowing the great nation of coffee that Portugal is".
About the portuguese people he says: Maybe they are not the best people to show up at a meeting time (laughs).They are very friendly and open, generous. When we started, Carla Bugalho (Portuguese head of delegation) said: "We are Atlantic, not Mediterranean. They will see that there is a difference." And there is. The delivery of work is very accurate. We received exactly what we asked for. They are very proud of the country. In love. If they like, they involve 110%.
Ola predicted the winner last year and about this time he says: "This year is treacherous. Israel stands out, the singer is very cool, has a lot of attitude, but if she does not perform at the same level, another ten may appear. It's too early to tell. Overall, there are very good songs."

But with a mother who was a true heroine and also slave under her impulses, Martin tells herself about what it is like to grow up like the ”Familjen Annorlunda” with constantly new addresses, constantly new dads and new little children.
The performance "Syskekärlek - count with noise" is premiered at Maximteatern in Stockholm on October 5, and then headed out on a nationwide tour in the fall and winter.
