Concert – Lemon Tree Blues
Moscow News, Russia 
Tickets will go on sale some days before the day of the party. Brainstorm is a successful Lat­vian rock band that became popular internationally in 2000, when they finished third in the Euro­vision Song Contest with the song "My Star. " The interesting thing about the band is that it had been formed 11 years before that – in 1989. As Eurovision is supposed to discover new talents, it seems a bit strange that this talented group was overlooked for so long. So then we all got the op­portunity to get better acquai­nted with Brainstorm's music videos and even see them making successful soundtracks for successful art house movies. Those who are not well acquai­nted to these guys should like them since they bring to mind the cool style of Coldplay and Bob Dylan at the same time.

As we have known changes in the EBU rules for the final of Eurosong 2009 partly reflects the Polish public broadcaster’s initial position. However due to lack of time Polish fans ask themselves whether the national final will take place as usual. According to some sources in TVP we should rather expect an artistic entry by a singer or a group chosen internally by TVP, but nobody confirms the news officially. On the other hand, more and more names appear in public speculations on candidates for Moscow 2009.

Hadise ready to win for Turkey
oikotimes.com, Greece 
Hadise was officially presented as the representative for Eurovision 2009 with the sole intention of winning the contest. TRT president Ibrahim Sahin was cautiously optimistic claiming that Hadise will be free to choose the song, style and language although no extra pressure would be placed on her. Although the freedom to choose the language may lean on favouring English as the chosen language, TRT have made it a clause that Hadise must use Turkish instruments in her performance. For her part Hadise appeared happy to be representing Turkey and made mention to the song language being a mix of Turkish and English with a possibility for including French, which she can speak confidently. There is however some concern as to Hedise’ participation for Belgium are not all that happy that she did not want to represent them and chose Turkey instead.
