ImageThe Teams spent two weeks in Duesseldorf at the Media Centre taking part at the various countries' press conferences and rehearsals and interviewing the many artists that were taking part in this year's Eurovision Song Contest. Over the next weeks you will hear these interviews on Radio International and some stories from the Eurovision Song Contest 2011. Way over 35000 spectators in the Esprit Arena followed Europe's biggest music extravaganza uniting countries from all around Europe and beyond in one single TV Show - The Eurovision Song Contest. NDR & ARD Television were the Host Broadcaster doing an outstanding job in getting the show transmitted to the many million viewers around the world. Also many former Eurovision performers visited the Media Centre in Duesseldorf which was a great plus as well. Artists such as former winners Alexander Rybak and the Olson Brothers and of course not to be forgotten, the Emperor of Eurovision - Mr. Johnny Logan. For the results and more trivia on Eurovision go to the Radio International Eurovision Database by clicking here.  For an extensive look at the Photo Collection click here.
ImageInterview with A Friend in London (Denmark 2011): A remarkable great result yet again in 2011 for the Danish entry to the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest for A Friend in London whose song "A new tomorrow" came 5th in the competition with a 134 points. Prior to the 56th Eurovision Song Contest Radio International already interviewed the lead singer Tim via phone on the show but now the team had the chance to have the entire band in front of the microphone. Enjoy listening to the interview.
ImageInterview with Kati Wolf (Hungary 2011):  Hungary's return to the Eurovision Song Contest was in 2011 with Kati Wolf and the great MTV produced song "What about my dreams" which successfully qualified the country for the Grand Final of the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest. Kati also was classed as a great fan favourite to win the song contest, however, only reached Number 22 in the Grand Final. This week Radio International will broadcast two interviews with Kati -one done before the Semi Final and the other one after the Winners' Press Conference.  
ImageInterview with Getter Jaani (Estonia 2011):  Estonia was represented at the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest by the young Getter Jaani and her team of backing vocalists and dancers. Their entry is called "Rockefeller Street" and manged to successfully qualify Estonia for the Grand Final but then only came 24th with 44 points. Before the Semi Final the Team of Radio International met the group for a little interview.  
ImageInterview with Aurela Gace (Albania 2011):  Albania was represented at the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest by the charming Aurela Gace who, however, sad to say so, did not manage to qualify her country Albania to the Grand Final. Her song "Feel the Passion" only reached 47 points in Semi Final 1, thus ranking Albani 13th.
