Germany withdraws from Junior Eurovision Song Contestesctoday.com
unless the European Broadcasting Union invites another country to replace Germany. After last year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen, it was announced that 20 countries would participate in 2004. Germany was said to be one of the newcomers, but German broadcaster NDR reported that there is no way that Germany will participate. A reason for the withdrawal has not been given. The withdrawal of Germany means that 19 instead of 20 countries will be represented at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Zagreb, Croatia. The European Broadcasting Union has not yet decided whether a new country will replace Germany or the number of participating countries will be cut down to 19.

Corey Spedding: Junior Eurovision winnerNews & Star
It’s also the second time that a News & Star Reach for the Star’s winner has achieved international fame – the 2002 winner, Tom Morley won the same competition last year and went on to represent his country in the first ever junior Eurovision in Copenhagen. Corey, 13, of Frizington, beat off competition from seven other finalists in the live British final on Saturday night, winning by four points with her self-penned song, The Best Is Yet To Come. She now goes on to represent Great Britain in the second junior contest, which is being held in Lillehammer in Norway in November. It is a dream come true for the Whitehaven School pupil, who has wanted to sing for her country ever since fellow West Cumbrian Tom Morley, of Cleator Moor, produced an inspiring performance in the inaugural Junior Eurovision.

Revival tour reunites Bucks Fizz

Pop group Bucks Fizz are reuniting to perform for the first time in 15 years for a 1980s revival tour. Cheryl Baker, Bobby Gee, Mike Nolan and Shelley Preston – who replaced original member Jay Aston – will come together for the Here and Now tour in December. The band hit success after winning the Eurovision Song Contest in 1981 with Making Your Mind Up. Other acts confirmed for the UK gigs include Belinda Carlisle, Midge Ure and Nik Kershaw. Prince recording to be auctioned

A tape of Prince’s early recordings, dating back almost 30 years, are to go under the hammer at auction next week. The original two-inch master copy features a 17-year-old Prince playing lead and rhythm guitars on five tracks. The tape was recorded with Pepe Willie and the band 94 East at the Cookhouse Studios, Minneapolis in 1975.

British and Dutch voters go to the polls todaySunday Times – The Sunday Times
Out of the 14,670 candidates, of whom a third are women, voters must select 732 people to send to the European Parliament for five years. The division of MEPs is so heavily weighted towards small countries that speck-like Malta has one MEP for every 80,000 citizens, while gargantuan Germany has one for every 830,000. The candidates include two astronauts, a Nobel prize-winner, Olympic medallists, an Oscar winner, a supermodel, a Eurovision Song Contest winner, a porn star, assorted TV celebrities and Big Brother finalists. There are also serious politicians, including half a dozen former prime ministers. Despite the colourful cast list of candidates, however, the turnout is expected to be very low. A recent study by the European Parliament suggested that only 48 per cent of the electorate will vote, just under the 49 per cent of the 1999 election. That was the first time the turnout had fallen below 50 per cent.

The five-piece outfit – put together from the ‘rejects’ of the first series of Popstars – hit No 1 in the singles chart with Just A Little and have enjoyed several other top 10 successes. They will top a bill which includes rising R&B star Jamelia – in the top 10 twice in the past year – and Lisa Scott-Lee, former member of Steps who scored a top 20 solo hit last year with Too Far Gone. Completing the line-up will be James Fox who made a big impression in the last series of Fame Academy and who represented the UK in the Eurovision Song Contest with Hold On to My Love, currently in the Top 40.

More boyband audition than electionIrish Independent
So historic times for Fine Gael and Enda as the next Taoiseach? Perhaps not. The status of the Eurovision election as a frivolous risk-free option means voters will use the poll to indicate what we would like to do to Fianna Fail. Though the finger which is tasked with the writing of Bertie Ahern’s political epitaph has not yet moved on, next week will go far towards unravelling the complex weave of a future which could consist of a glorious three-in-a-row or an escape to Europe. It says a great deal about the performance of the Opposition that even in these cruel times, FF could gain a seat.

Jesus musical set for star-studded resurrectionBaltic Times
For him, being martyred eight more times in Tartu should be like falling off a log. More familiar to audiences will be the Estonian stars involved. Vaiko Eplik, the lead singer of Estonia’s failed Eurovision band Ruffus, plays Judas (read into it any irony you want), and Liisi Koikson plays Mary Magdalene – quite a reversal from her recent role as good-girl Sandy in “Grease. ” The performance will be in English, with Estonian titles. Tickets should still be available during the week of the show. In Tartu, they can be bought directly at the Vanemuine Theater’s box office, and range from 125 kroons (8 euros) to 295 kroons. They will also be on sale throughout Estonia via Piletilevi or Piletipunkt agencies at the same price.

‘Open House’ presenter’s dog sinks teeth into performing…Irish Independent
Now the mutt has become the toast of the Abbey Theatre after rescuing the national theatre’s production of Dion Boucicault’s The Shaughraun which opened last week. The original “professional” canine actor failed to gel with leading man Adrian Dunbar during rehearsals. Around the same time Mary Kennedy hosted a party at her home for around 80 people who worked on Open House during its long stint at the heart of RTE’s afternoon schedules. “Joan Egan of Tyrone Productions saw how comfortable Patch was with all the people and thought he could play the role of ‘Tatters’ in the play,” Mary Kennedy told the Sunday Independent.
