Over the past few hours, the artists that will be competing in the first semi-final have been revealed. ERR revealed this by revealing one song per hour, commencing at 10am local time (11am CET). In addition, the songs in the first semi-final were made available to listen to for the first time.

My first memory of watching the Eurovision Song Contest was back in 2001 and, over the years, my passion and enthusiasm for the contest has very much turned into an obsession. I adore music and I love geography, so this contest is a natural fit for me. If la la loving Eurovision was a crime, I'd certainly be a criminal!
