BBC tries to expunge Eurovision shameGuardian Unlimited
getElementById( ‘frameId206042’ ). Terry Wogan, whose gently cynical commentary has been associated with Eurovision night since the contest began in 1956, will be joined by a young female presenter to bring in a youth audience and to inject greater enthusiasm into the event. The motivation to revamp the selection process came when Britain scored zero for the first time in the contest’s history in 2003. The result was partly due to the poor performance on the night of Jemini, the previously unknown duo whose song was written by Martin Isherwood, the head of music at Sir Paul McCartney’s “fame school” in Liverpool. Britain last won in 1997 with Love Shine a Light, performed by Katrina and the Waves.

One in four Britons ranked the American illusionist as the top flop of the last 12 months for his 44-day starvation stunt. He ranked higher than Iain Duncan Smith, Eurovision duo Jemini and the entire Australian nation in a poll of 1,000 people to find the failures of 2003. Victoria Beckham was voted the fifth biggest loser for her struggle to break America despite the help of her new best friend, record mogul Damon Dash. Jemini?s spectacular nil points in the Eurovision Song Contest won them 13 percent of the vote in the survey of underachievers conducted for McCain Foods… He ranked higher than Iain Duncan Smith, Eurovision duo Jemini and the entire Australian nation in a poll of 1,000 people to find the failures of 2003.

Idol ratings bring summer shockThe Age
Then came World Idol on Boxing Day, in which Australian winner Guy Sebastian competed against the winners of the equivalent Idol shows from 10 other countries. Viewers around the world had 24 hours to phone in their votes, with the proviso that no nation could vote for its own candidate. Last Friday’s two-hour program, which closely resembled the Eurovision Song Contest, averaged 2. 4 million viewers in the mainland capitals. This would have put it among the 10 most watched shows of the year if it wasn’t outside the official ratings period.

Agadoo, don’t, don’tSunday Times – The Sunday Times
Separate the song from the video and you have a classic R&B ballad, not something suitable for sniggering. The fault lies, Horatio, not in our deeds but in our presentation of them. Same goes for Bucks Fizz’s Eurovision-winning Making Your Mind Up, which seemed to get the knockback because of the bit where the skirts were ripped off, revealing not-bad-at-all female legs. I’m sorry, but I don’t see the problem here. If, on the other hand, people voted for it because it was a bad song, then they obviously failed to understand the raison d’être of the Eurovision Song Contest, where it is your duty to win with a song that flies in the face of so many pop verities that Pete Waterman would be in a strop for a week. Frankly, to condemn a song on the grounds of its accompanying video is like saying you don’t like a chocolate because of the wrapping. Anyway, those who grew up in the days of Pan’s People on Top of the Pops would be inclined to suggest the yoof of today think itself lucky it has videos at all (the Peeps’ routine to Gilbert O’Sullivan’s Get Down, involving wagging peremptory fingers at a row of bemused dogs on a sofa, lives on in the memory, especially after a late-night supper consisting mainly of cheese).

No matter what the future brings, Irish dance will probably never be the same. It has captured the imagination of the world. None but a few people remember the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin in 1994. But they all remember “Riverdance. Stierheim is an Adamsburg freelance writer for the Tribune-Review.

They all sang on the show on Christmas Day, with the Eurovision-style voting results being broadcast on New Year’s Day. “This is totally amazing,” Nilsen said, telling the other 10 competitors: “I love you guys. ”

A father of two, Nilsen had the biggest-selling Norwegian single of all time in his home country with She’s So High, his debut release after winning Pop Idol. His album then went platinum on its first day of release. The show’s creator Simon Fuller said he saw Pop Idol as a “global concept” from the start.

Mergers, file-sharing, creative revenue-jacking, Lisa Marie Presley,…LA City Beat
Three, for the last 20 years, the music business has done a terrible job of developing artists whose works have any sort of longevity in the marketplace. Ask yourself, what artist(s) on the charts this week could I see myself buying a boxed set of their discs in 2023? Well, now, that?s a long list ?

8. I had a dream where Eurovision contest winners and Japanese assembly-line pop techniques converged to create an American Idol world. Or did I?

9. Artist of the Year: Lisa Marie Presley. Just like her father, she created a whole new kind of music.

While undoubtedly we must control the media, we seem to be doing a pretty bad job when it comes to transmission times. Most patient Israeli: Singer David D?Or has been chosen to represent Israel at the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest. Part of the job involves choosing four songs in the Israeli final, one of which will go forward to the contest. But before he gets that far, he?s got to narrow it down from 250. Looks like he?ll be busy for the next few weeks then.

Usher Hall tunes up for overhaulEdinburgh Evening News
The venue, which has hosted pop concerts by the likes of Travis, Van Morrison and The Flaming Lips since the first stage of its revamp was completed three years ago, now has the facility to transform its stalls into a standing arena. The A-listed hall, which was built in 1914, has played host to acts as varied as The Rolling Stones, Bing Crosby, Stephane Grappelli, Jools Holland, Simple Minds and Bjork. Notable events include hosting the 1972 Eurovision Song Contest and boxing tournaments at the Commonwealth Games. Councillor Ricky Henderson, the city’s culture and leisure leader, said: “We’re very much looking forward to the completion of the refurbishment of the Usher Hall because it will bring so many new assets to the venue. The auditorium is renowned as being world class but you couldn’t say the same about the backstage, conference and educational facilities.
