Eurovision ‘greats’ to do battleBBC News
Viewers will choose 14 past songs to be performed by the original artists or others in the spirit of the originals. Past Eurovision performers include Abba, Celine Dion, Bucks Fizz, Nana Mouskouri, Lulu and Julio Iglesias. Fans will then vote as usual to pick the all-time best Eurovision song during the show in Denmark in October. The first contest was organised by the European Broadcasting Union, or EBU, in 1956, and has become an annual event pitting pop giants against musical minnows – with often surprising results. Unmissable

While some regard it as an essential celebration of continental talent, others see it as an equally unmissable parade of the reasons some countries do not normally produce international stars. The 50th annual contest will be held in Kiev, Ukraine, in May, after Ukrainian singer Ruslana won last year.

RTBF goes on strike, delay in Eurovision decisionsesctoday.com
“At least by one week,” told Leslie Cable to eurosong. Belgium’s French speaking broadcaster has been facing several social conflicts in the past and actions like these are no rarity in Wallonia.

The event will be televised live from Denmark and will give viewers the chance to vote for the top 14 songs from the show’s history, though the songs may not necessarily be performed by the original artists. The format will be the same as the annual contest, allowing viewers across the continent to vote for their choice at the end of the show after seeing all the performaces. This year’s competition will take place in the Ukraine in May, while the anniversary special will be held on October 22 in Denmark.

Mayo family rally around You’re a Star’s Dave HopeWestern People
Co Clare artist, David Hope, is of Mayo stock. David made it through to the last ten finalists in the popular show but was sadly eliminated last Sunday night after receiving the least number of phone votes from the public. Relatives from all over Mayo were present in The Helix in Dublin to comfort the Eurovision hopeful. David also has lots of family in Swinford, Kiltimagh, Balla, Manulla, Breaffy, Castlebar and Crossmolina. Gig-goers in Castlebar, and Kiltimagh will be familiar with Dave too from his involvement with ?Incognito?, a band which included his Castlebar cousin, Rob Hope. Dave?s elimination from the show will no doubt have come as a shock to his Mayo family, given that he was the poll topper in the competition just a matter of weeks ago.

History is blue. DiscussGuardian Unlimited
getElementById( ‘frameId203014’ ). Who beat the French loads of times? a) we did; b) we really whopped them big time; c) Agincourt, Blenheim, Waterloo, Eurovision song contest 1976; they never stood a chance! (You may tick more than one box – it’s called multiple freedom of choice. Who beat the Germans in two world wars and one World Cup? a) that would be us plucky Brits again; b) all on our own it was, with perhaps a little help from our good friends the Americans, but that’s all, the Russian commies didn’t do anything to help; c) Winston Churchill was a Tory, you know. And “Nazi” is short for National Socialist.

Record figures for Wogan as Radio 2 tops the chartsTelegraph.co.uk
1 million listeners each week, a slight drop on the figures for the same three-month period in 2003. Yesterday his radio show, Wake Up To Wogan, which returned to Radio 2 in 1993 after first appearing in 1972, proved that it has also got legs – and is getting more popular, rather than less. He has attracted more than two million new listeners over the last five years. His popularity was even acknowledged in a song by the Mercury prize-winning band, Franz Ferdinand, in which the epitome of success is being interviewed by Wogan. According to Wogan, who describes himself simply as a “jobbing broadcaster” in his Who’s Who entry, his life would be “an arid desert” without the show.

Wow, what a viewThe Age
Over at Seven, though, hostssuch as Sandy Roberts have no court backdrop at all butcomparatively mundane views, such as the outside of Rod LaverArena. But it’s not just Fox’s crew who reckon they have won out in theOpen’s location stakes. So, too, do studio crews from ESPN,Eurovision and even Wowow, a Japanese TV company, who all heardabout Fox’s great view and popped in to see it for themselves. Allagreed it was by far the best on the broadcast compound block. Given that Channel Seven could probably use its considerablefree-to-air clout to pretty much nominate where it wants to hostits coverage from, don’t be surprised if that spectacular view overcourts five and seven is exclusively Seven’s in 2006. Work, work, workAnd there is plenty of friendly rivalry between the two networks,too, not least because Seven’s head of sport, Saul Shtein, oncewore the same cap at Foxtel, and the bloke who now runs sport atFox, Tony Sinclair, is a former Seven sports boss. And there’s Foxhost Casey, himself a former Seven staffer, as well.

LEGAL ALIEN: Quick, Robin, to the Batcave!Sofia Echo
Those fearful of a BSP victory in this year?s elections could wait out the Party?s term of office in their little hidey-hole. No doubt, the next-door neighbours might be those waiting out the Bush II presidency. Further down Cave Street might be a few who will be using all electrical appliances bar a television set, the better to escape the next season of Big Brother or having to listen to one more entrant for the Bulgarian round of the Eurovision song contest. For that matter, I would not be too surprised if the producers of Big Brother might consider setting the next season in a cave. The Neanderthal behaviour of some competitors might be perfectly suited to cave-dwelling. A few technical points. Apart from electricity, would the caves be heated? Do caves require this kind of thing? My experience, which is limited to the extensive chain of the Cango Caves, is that they are rather humid.

Breaking News: Michael Ball to Fill in for Flu-Ridden Michael…Broadway World
All three concerts were released internationally on video and have been televised around the world, with Michael receiving overwhelming plaudits for his personal performances. Other career highlights include representing Great Britain at the Eurovision Song Contest, watched live on TV by an audience of 600 million worldwide. His song entry, One Step Out of Time rocketed to the top of the UK charts and his first solo album,.
