Eurovision smitten by rebranding madnessRegister
The universally understood symbol of the heart, standing for deep emotions, is filled with the member countries’ flags. These latter ones hold great meaning for the ESC anyway: Because how could you back your star and your country any better than with flags and banners forming a sea of support at the grand finale. True enough: No one can admit to watching Eurovision without succumbing to strong emotions. Rage and despair immediately spring to mind. Still, let’s put our differences aside and allow the Strategy Euroboutique have the final word on their symbol of unity and hope:The vitality of the event, its unbroken vibrancy, is symbolised by the logo’s typography (for insiders: “brushstroke”). Its possible field of application as well as its scope for design is unlimited. What they have in common is that from now on, the logo is going to give the ESC a clear identitiy to be transported from year to year.

Kent girl is Cyprus Eurovision starBBC News
People in Cyprus have chosen a 16-year-old girl from Kent to represent the island in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. Lisa Andreas, from Gillingham, hopes to be crowned the Eurovision queen at the Istanbul contest in May. The schoolgirl, who is studying for her GCSEs, was picked by the people of Cyprus last week to be their contender in the glitzy singing contest. Half-Greek Lisa hopes the contest will lead to worldwide singing fame. She said: “Greek people are very emotional, very passionate about what they say and how they express their feelings so I am very privileged to be a part of it.

Triumphal note for on-song Cityic CheshireOnline
City’s winner came three minutes into injury time and was a reward for the confidence and never-say-die attitude which is oozing from the side. Chester’s goals came from their own Rene and Renatta, strikers Daryl Clare and Darryn Stamp, who have now registered 37 goals between them this season in what is proving to be the most potent strike force in the Conference.

RTE loses one in 14 viewers as audiences change channelsIrish Independent
Today, we are scattered. There are still some big favourites which get hammered by critics but which any controller of programmes would not dare to drop. They include Ireland’s most popular programme last year, The Eurovision Song Contest, and its sixth most popular, The Rose of Tralee. Other big winners are Prime Time and Fair City. And the Castaway crew may have sunk a boat but they bobbed up in the ratings to number 34 in RTE 1’s top 50. During 2003, RTE was still showing all of the most popular Irish-made programmes, including in the top 50, Off the Rails, Crimeline and Nationwide. TV3 continues to fail to deliver Irish-made programmes of appeal to many viewers and depends on Coronation Street to attract its greatest audiences.

You’re a Star needs an air of tensionIrish Independent
Tubridy, a self-confessed young fogey, 2FM DJ and devotee of Beatle tunies, drew hisses and boos from the audience and outrage from fellow panellists Louis Walsh and Linda Martin when he slammed the mediocrity of the performers, accused heat winner Chris Doran of being a compulsive yodeller and opined that unless Jean Elliot wins we will be sending ‘a turkey to Turkey’. Hisses, foot-stamping and near riot in the auditorium. But the spit really hit the fan when Ryan gamely described the Eurovision as ‘tacky’ which had Linda Martin ululating “I’m not tacky. am I tacky?” (silence) while Louis Walsh went for the yuckular – “this from the man who presented the Rose of Tralee, the tackiest show in the world”. Tubridy was nonplussed and dismissed Final Four, four boys dressed as undertakers, as ‘another boyband’ (which was charitable) and, for the max discomfiture of Louis and Linda, even dredged up ‘The Number that Must Not be Mentioned’ (hint.
