The politics of popGuardian Unlimited
This is because few will remember it, and fewer still be able to pronounce it. However, Mr Stockselius deserves all the opprobrium that can be heaped upon him. It was he, as executive of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, who decreed that Ukraine’s entry, Greenjolly, had to rewrite their song, or face expulsion. Mr Stockselius, it may reasonably be concluded, is a pompous, humourless jobsworth. He has also fumbled a glorious opportunity to render the wretched spectacle watchable… getElementById( ‘frameId668173’ ). Given that this year’s Eurovision is being held in Kiev – following 2004’s victory by leatherclad thunder goddess Ruslana – it would have made a rousing addition to an otherwise routinely dismal lineup. However, Mr Stockselius took exception to the song’s lyrics, which big up Viktor Yushchenko, the mottled survivor of a poisoning attempt who is now Ukraine’s president. Eurovision, declared Mr Stockselius, is “non-political”. Maybe Mr Stockselius has never watched Eurovision, but “non-political” does not figure among the many names that the contest can rightly be called. Eurovision is legendary as an arena for settling diplomatic scores, venting ethnic grievance, baiting national rivals and undermining governments – and, what’s more, these moments are almost always the highlights.

“Eurovision-2005”: there is “a fly in the ointment&quot…The Forum – ForUm
He declared about it on today’s press-conference to a ForUm’s correspondent. The question of providing guests of contest "Eurovision -2005" with hotels became "a fly in the ointment", – said Gritsak. According to him, during the last week some hotels in which it was planned to place the guests, artificially set too high prices, wishing to get excess profit in a short space of time. Presently, according to Gritsak, the organizers of the contest conduct negotiations with hotels directors concerning optimum price for meeting guests of "Eurovision -2005" in Kiev.

An Old Vice – March 25, 2005 – The New York SunNew York Sun
It is an extremely dangerous vice because of its ability to erode any democratic process from within. Three recent episodes exemplify this. First episode: Lebanon, the country each of us hopes to see soon free as it deserves, withdrew from the Eurovision singing contest that will take place on May 19 and 20 in Kiev, Ukraine. The reason for the withdrawal was Israel’s participation in the popular festival. The head of the Lebanese television confirmed the decision and justified it by adding that Lebanon was not aware of Israel’s participation when it accepted the invitation to attend the singing contest. Otherwise, he clearly would have never accepted, since the Lebanese law prohibits broadcasting the Israeli song, while the Eurovision contest’s regulations require broadcasting all the competing songs. No need to say that the Israelis never had a problem with that regulation.

Belgium: Eurovision Song Contest 2005esctoday.com
After lengthy consideration, Belgium’s French speaking broadcaster decided to include a small scaled national final with two songs in a show celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Eurovision Song Contest. Biography Nuno Guilherme de Figueiredo Resende was born in Porto, Portugal, on 25 June 1973. At the age of twelve, he and his family migrated to Belgium. A fervent sports lover, Nuno received his degree in physical education. After his studies, he worked for some time as a salesman, then as a messenger boy? but music has always remained his first love.

Vanilla Ninja: Estonian girls for Switzerlandesctoday.com
As a band we came together at the end of summer 2002. Piret and Katrin were deskmates
in school and Lenna and Maarja were best friends in their school. So basically two couples of best friends met and with the help of one Estonian producer and a local record company we started Vanilla Ninja. At first we made a couple of songs in Estonian but the Estonian audience wasn’t too exited about our rocky style at first. At the end of 2002 we decided to take part in the Estonian Eurovision Song Contest selections Eurolaul and we made a song called Club Kung-Fu, which was our first song in English… At first we made a couple of songs in Estonian but the Estonian audience wasn’t too exited about our rocky style at first. At the end of 2002 we decided to take part in the Estonian Eurovision Song Contest selections Eurolaul and we made a song called Club Kung-Fu, which was our first song in English. We made it to the Estonian Eurovision prefinals with that song and finally the popularity came. We released an album in Estonia and toured our home
country half a year. In autumn 2003 we were introduced to a German producer David Brandes who was willing to work with us and as a result we released our first international album Traces Of Sadness. By now this album has received a platinum status in Germany and a Gold status in
Austria. It has also been released in countries like Japan, Brazil and Poland.

Israeli Arab MK visits Sabra, Chatila camps?????
Bishara, in Lebanon to offer condolences to the family of slain former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, said: “I could not have come to Lebanon to offer condolences for martyr Rafik Hariri and not offer condolences to the martyrs of the Sabra and Chatila massacre. ”

The visit was Bishara’s first to Lebanon, which is in a state of war with Israel and bans Israeli citizens from entering the country. Lebanon withdraws from Eurovision

Lebanon has pulled out of this year’s Eurovision song contest because of the presence of an Israeli participant in the show, organizers said Friday. A statement posted on the Eurovision Web site said Lebanon was forced to withdraw because its national television station could not broadcast the Israeli portions of the contest, to be held May 19 and 21 in Kiev, Ukraine. “According to Lebanese legislation, Tele Liban is not permitted to broadcast the performance of the Israeli participant, thereby breaching the rules of the Eurovision Song Contest 2005,” the statement said. According to the rules of the contest, all national broadcasters of the countries taking part must broadcast the entire event, comprising two live televised shows – a semifinal and a final. Tele Liban’s head, Ibrahim Khoury, confirmed the decision to pull out, telling The Associated Press that Lebanon was unaware of the presence of an Israeli participant when it confirmed its entry in December… ”

Oh, Pat . . . why did you fall for it!Irish Independent
After all, we would have thought being the main attraction at a funeral was kinda proof that your heart, in fact, most certainly did not go on. But the warbler, who is currently playing a residency in Las Vegas is rather less than impressed with the quality of guest she is attracting: “People come here for four days, they eat too much, drink too many free drinks, they get sick from all that, they are jet-lagged sometimes so they just sit in the seat and sleep. ” Or maybe they just realise that they are stuck at a Celine Dion show and take the only sensible option of drinking themselves into blissful oblivion? Hmm, I see a way out While the idea of Lebanon being included in the Eurovision Song Contest is no more geographically eccentric than including their great friend Israel, we were intrigued by the Lebanese decision to pull out of their first Eurovision – ostensibly because it is against the law to show Israelis as anything other than Jewish invaders, and the sight of a bunch of Israeli flags being waved happily is obviously too much for some Lebanese legislators. But before we rush to condemn Lebanese stupidity, maybe they’re on to something. Their song, presumably, is rubbish. And now they won’t embarrass themselves in front of the world – well, the collection of hairdressers, professional ironists and gay people who comprise the Eurovision audience. What can RTE object to? Perhaps they can complain about Terry Wogan broadcasting for a rival network and throw a strop.

New dog learning old tricksGuardian Unlimited
“The new head of NTKU, Taras Stetskiv, is one of Mr Yushchenko’s trusted lieutenants who organised the “tent city” in Kiev during the November protests. He has said that public service broadcasting “won’t happen tomorrow” and that in the meantime he will concentrate on coverage of Ukraine’s hosting of the Eurovision Song Contest in May. NTKU’s handling of Eurovision has also been criticised for slavishly toeing the government line – not unlike what the state broadcaster used to do under the previous regime. When it seemed that the most audience votes would go to singer Ana Lorak, considered a supporter of the losing presidential candidate, Viktor Yanukovich, the new government stepped in at the last minute to impose a new contestant. The group Greenjolly wrote Together We Are Many, a pro-Yushchenko rap song that became the anthem of the Orange movement in November. The song’s lyrics say: “Together, there are many of us. And we cannot be overcome.

“If you stood on the stage for as long as these players, under that much stress and playing for that amount of money, you’d agree that darts is physically demanding,” said Matt Porter of the Professional Darts Corporation. It’s odd that the amount of money involved should have a bearing on whether or not any particular activity is in fact a sport. Should the Eurovision Song Contest now be reclassified as a sport? It seems to meet all the qualifications. And what about shopping? Earlier this week, a survey claimed to have discovered that, when two women go shopping together, the average time they put in is three hours 18 minutes. Has the International Olympic Committee been alerted to the delights of the world-class track at Bond Street yet?Sports England said it was satisfied that darts required “the physical and mental skills” to qualify as a legitimate sporting activity. On the same basis, drinking must qualify too. As the world champion, Andy Fordham used to drink 25 lagers a day.

?For the French, the Turks are Arabs, one explains to them that they are Muslim not Arab, but they do not understand,? said Marleix. The author emphasized that many French citizens see Turkey has already being in Europe. He listed two facts as proof: ?They quote readily the fact that it is represented with the Miss Europe and Eurovision contest and the final of the Champions League will take place on May 25 in Istanbul.
