About the magic of Eurovision

Posted by Pedro.Eurovisionontop on May 23, 2015 at 4:15 AM Comments comments (0)
Today is the grand final, the day the ORF Team was working hard for. The final show will be broadcasted to 200 million people all over the world, including Australia and for the first time also China broadcasted the three shows.

Around the Stadthalle Eurovision on top very often met in the last days people who just travelled to the event, sometimes without any tickets, others with tickets but with no idea about the events and program environment. And there are so so called fans traveling for the second or third time to the Eurovision.

But what are the reasons for that? What is the secret of that show and what did happen the last 60 years so that people from all over the world are traveling to this show?

Eurovision on top spoke about that with two guys from Germany. Christian (41, left) & Marc (34) are a couple living in Düsseldorf (Germany) and took the time to answer to some questions to get a better understanding about the spirit and magic this show seems to have.



For Christian it isn‘t the first time being at such huge events. As professional photograph he is used to be at red carpet, big shows and to show people the emotions of events. But this time Christian and also Marc aren‘t here to work. Only to enjoy and party.

Why did you decided to travel to Vienna?
Christian: After having a wonderful ESC week in our hometown Düsseldorf (2011) we decided last year, after the great victory of Conchita, to celebrate this event once again live. So we booked the tickets for the flight and the hotel last year, became members of the portuguese Fanclub, where we've got the show tickets and so ... here we are!

Marc: I started to get a big fan of Eurovision after a fantastic Eurovision-Week in my hometown Düsseldorf. It was a really great experience and atmosphere and we get known really nice people and made new friends

What is your (special) link to Eurovision?
Christian: I am a fan of the Eurovision since Johny Logan won the contest with Hold Me Now ... from this year on i watched every year the show on TV and since round about 10 years we celebrate every year a big ESC Party at our home with 30-40 friends, big screen and a lot of fun! The year Lena won the competition for me a dream for me came truth! Not only the fact that in the next year Germany hosted the event ... better: that it was my hometown!!!

What is the fact you like most about Eurovision?
Christian: Mostly the fact that, even that so many different nations, religions and people are participating on this event, it's like a big family! It big party, it's peaceful and its building bridges!!!!

How is your Eurovision Experience 2015 so far?
Christian: Vienna is really a great host! The people we've meet a so friendly and trying to give the guests a great time! The volunteers, Taxi-Drivers, the OGAE Austria Team ... we have a great time here and Vienna is showing his best side!!!

What was so far your best Eurovision moment 2015?
Christian: Hard to say ... so many great moments!!! Meeting some artist, the opening of Conchita at the first semi final! But I think the best moments were those meeting our friends from Spain, Portugal, Germany ... and meeting new people from all over Europe!

Which Semi Final song would you have wished to see at the final?
Christian: For me the Netherlands! Because I am half Netherlands and so my heart beats half for them!

What do you think? Which song will win?
Christian: I really don't know! I thing it's a really strong year!!! And I believe there will be no one winning with a large distance to the others! My personal favorite is Norway! But I think it will be a race between Sweden, Italy, Israel, Australia and Russia!

Marc: I agree with Christian. But I hope for 7: Sweden and Israel. I never visit this country's before and I know that they have a huge Eurovision fan base. I wish all the contestants all the best and I hope that the people outside vote for the music and not for the political background

Once again it is nice to see how this events builds bridges and brings so many positive things to people. This evening for sure a lot of people all over the world will like Christian and Marc usually do, watch the show together with friends and enjoy the 60th Eurovision Song Contest.

The Makemakes and OneRepublic on Tour

Posted by Eurovision On Top on May 22, 2015 at 2:15 PM Comments comments (0)

The Makemakes, the Austrian band that will represent the host country at the next Eurovision Song contest, will embark on an European Tour as the support act of the American international band OneRepublic.


 

The Makemakes always say that they are not the common Eurovision Act and judging by their heavy agenda we have to agree and it even seems that Eurovision is just just another date on their regular schedule.

On May 5th 2015 they started the European tour as the support act of One Republic in Prague. Four days later they will fly to Estonia for another concert. In June, as part of the same tour, they will visit another 6 more European cities.


 

Between the tour and Eurovision they will release their self titled debut album on May 15th. The first official video (4th single overall) is already out and it will be added to our video section on May 24th so you can vote for it. "You're not alone" is the name of the track.

Below you can recall our interview with the Austrian band where they stated "For sure we won't come last".

We don't know if the smoke will be black or white for Germany and Ann Sophie at the next Eurovision Song Contest. But probably way more important than the color of the smoke is the silver and gold of her album which is out now.


 

'Silver into Gold' is the title of the full lenght of Ann Sophie, the German representative at the ESC 2015. The album was released on April 24, 2015 and has been highly promoted by Ann Sophie herself on her social networks showing all of her excitement.

The album contains 13 tracks including not only the German entry but also the winning song of the wildcard phase of 'Unser Song für Österreich' ("Our Song for Austria"), "Jump the Gun", adding more 11 tracks.
