Who would think Eurovision week in Dusseldorf would come around so soon.
Yet each year Eurovision grows not with just more countries, or old ones like Austria & Italia,
also with progress it developes and grows. Certainly the time when this European Song contest
was an introduction to several brand new songs never heard before are over-
With the internet websites u-tube and downloads stores the battle of the favourite song, begins weeks before- if we choose we can hear a countries tune over and over.
This I personally find this all refreshing, as for example Iceland's 'Coming Home' has grown to be a favourite of ESC 2011, and while it may well get missed among the up-beat showstoping effects of the other entries.
Its a tune that grows on you- and in past growers have never stood a chance much.
So after many listens, + having seen some of the rehearsals-
this is schlagertunes top10-- of semi final 1 ( in a random order)
