EBU Press Conference / Azerbaijani Pilaf Ceremony

Next year's Eurovision Song Contest is 14/16/18 of May.

Last night had the biggest arena audience for a live semi-final.

The idea that each country will have an open selection and that no country will do a totally internal selection is under serious consideration.

Complaints that people in the Arena couldn't see the screens, so more screens are being added.

Apparently the public and juries agreed an 8 of the 10 qualifiers last night and one jury favourite and one public favourite filling the remaining two places. 

A few scattered questions on Human Rights, but really nothing of any significance.

While we wait for the Semi Two jury final, there has been an Azerbaijani Pilau Ceremony, a very elaborate way of feeding the Press Area with a lovely lamb and rice dish complete with apricots.

Here's the latest Press Area vote. As a matter of interest, the poll, the poll in the first semi got 9 out of 10 correct, with Switzerland being in and Hungary outside the Top 10.

The bottom 11 places are extremely close - only 6 points separate Estonia from Belarus. It is going to be verz tight !!!
