Julia Zemiro’s Eurovision diary
The Age
From our (two port-a-loo sized)commentary box up in the gods it feels like a sporting event. Ihalf expect Sam to start quoting stats and odds and soon we do. Eurovision has a long history and there are facts aplenty. urcameraman Andy is sandwiched between us and our producer Paul. We’re on between songs. There are no ad breaks and we are crampedand stifled but the competition keeps our spirits up especiallywhen our favourites — a sweetly traditional entry fromPortugal and a dramatic military one from Bosnia-Herzegovina —get through. We’re devastated though when Belarus’ Petr Elfimov (who lookslike the love child of Warwick Capper and Martina Navratilova)fails to make it with his limp rock anthem.
