ESC Birthday : JOHANNES NYMARK

Happy 31st to gorgeous Johannes: proudly gay man, husband and father, a remarkable example of how many guys dream their future to be.  He’s more of an actor, but maybe in the future he’ll come back to singing.

DENMARK - When Denmark selects its Eurovision entry on February 25th it will be with help from five Danish Eurovision fans. They will have 50 % of the vote in both the first and second round of the contest. Usually the jury are people from the music industry but this year all five members will be people who love Eurovision. Jan Lundme from DR says that they have chosen fans to be the jury this year because they have a huge knowledge about the contest and they really care about sending the right song to Eurovision for Denmark.

1999 – JERUSALEM – ISRAEL

This was one of the best Eurovisions in many ways. This was the only time ever I had a direct flight to Eurovision. It was also the shortest flight (every other flight to Eurovision took almost 24 hours with lay overs somewhere) and the only time I could visit without a visa. But I had accommodation problems as the travel agent lied to me. Instead of securing me accommodation close to the venue, I was living in a guest house miles away from the venue. The travel agent said I wanted to stay CLOSE to a bus stop to take me to the venue, but my directive was that I want to stay as close as possible so I could walk there. It took almost an hour travelling by bus to Eurovision every day. Also I was totally away from any official hotels, so I was unable to use their transport and so I had to buy a bus ticket daily. I must say the guest house was out of this world, but totally wrong for me who came to Eurovision and wanted to be close to the venue.

Israel gave me my best accreditation ever – made me HEAD OF DELEGATION of SOUTH AFRICA so for the first and only time, I was allowed backstage to speak to the artists in private. They also produced for me a press card so that I was also able to get a pigeonhole. That year I represented the Portuguese radio station RADIO CIDADE.

Morten had a very special flight to Israel. He was on the same plane with all the artists from the Nordic countries. In the same plane were Selma (Iceland), Van Eijk (Norway), Charlotte (Sweden) and Trine and Michael (Denmark). Finland did not qualify for Jerusalem, so they were not there. Carola Haggkvist was also on the plane.

My flight from Johannesburg landed 3 minutes after the plane with the Nordic delegation. Charlotte Nillson spoke to me while we were waiting to go through customs and asked me what I thought of her song. At that stage there was a big debate about whether to sing in Swedish or English since the change of the language rule. I told Charlotte her song, "Take me to your heaven" would be a winner. More countries did televoting and I just knew for those viewers hearing/seeing the song the first time, this will do well. Patricia Lewis from South Africa covered the song and it sold 100 000 copies for her. She impressed the composers so much that they invited her to Stockholm where they produced a full CD for her.

Ralph Siegel was of course also in Jerusalem with Surpriz and their song Reise nach Jerusalem - kudus'e seyahat - it was exactly 20 years since he had been there with Dschinghis khan.

There were a change in rehearsals - Lithuania was suppose to be last on the first day but due to flying in only the next day (to save money), they swapped with another country which I cannot remember now but think it was Estonia.

Austria had a great promotion - their entry was "Reflection" by Bobby Singer and press people were given a disposable camera to take photo's of Bobby and the person taking the best photo would win a holiday in some Austrian ski resort.

The biggest shock to me was the Friday before the final when the Jewish SUNDAY started and I was stuck 5 kilometers away from my guest house and no public transport and had to walk the distance home. Luckily it was mainly downhill.

Obviously with no transport to go to the venue from the guest house on the Saturday to watch the final from the press center, I stayed in my bed and watched the final on TV.

The entries I like best are
Sweden - Take me to your heaven - Charlotte
Iceland - All out of luck - Selma
Malta - Believe 'n peace - Times three
Portugal - Conc tudo comecou - Rui Bandeira

And some horrors as well
Lithuania - Strazdas - Aisle
United Kingdom - Say it again - Precious
Spain - Lydia - No quiero escuchar

Denmark: DR to reveal the 10 DMGP finalists this Thursday https://t.co/DYbIsgT9iE https://t.co/DYbIsgT9iE

They’re the country who recently won Eurovision but haven’t managed to make the final in the past two years. This Thursday Danish broadcaster DR will announce the ten artists competing in Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2017. And unlike in previous years, the 2017 line-up will feature all solo artists.

The decision to have only solo artists for 2017 has long been rumoured. It follows Denmark’s two most recent DMGP winners, who both failed to qualify for the Eurovision final.

In 2015, teen pop band Anti Social Media placed unlucky 13th in their semi final, while last year the mature boy band Lighthouse X came second to last in their semi-final.

DR’s entertainment manager Jan Lagermand Lundme is so confident in the 2017 line-up that he expects Denmark to reach the final in Kyiv. He explains, “I am grateful that the ten soloists are so good, because without them you could dream so many dreams about moving on. But with the ten, we can not do better.” #Eurovision2017 #Eurovision #drgrandprix

1997 – DUBLIN – IRELAND

Going back to Ireland so soon was not that special. Ireland had won so many times in a relatively short span of time, so it was sort of boring. One good thing was that the venue was the same and I booked again at the same guest house where I stayed in 1995. This time I did not take chances with my flight and no Sudan airways. I flew British airways to London and then to Dublin. I however had a bad flight. There are many things I do not eat, so I always book a special meal. They slipped up and did not book it and the air hostess dare to tell me "This is not a restaurant, you have to eat what we have". I was of course furious but not much I could do.

The Eurovision itself made up for this. 1997 was the year I got all the individual CD singles the fastest ever. By now the various delegations became aware of me, the only accredited journalist from Africa. I also were doing radio shows for the Greek/Cyprus radio station in South Africa (Radio Hellenic) and the Portuguese radio station in South Africa (Radio Cidade). Although I liked it a lot to do shows about Eurovision to these stations, the problem was that both were mainly interested in their entries and did not care about the entries of say Norway or Finland.

Very special to me was the fact that I met up with Ralph Siegel again - the last time I saw him was in Munich in 1983. He was there as composer for the German entry "Zeit" sung by Bianca Shimburg who sounded like a Celine Dion to me.

1997 also produced a huge winner – LOVE SHINE A LIGHT by Katrina and the waves and with Myrian Stockley from South Africa as one of the backing singers. I did not speak a lot to her – going to Eurovision surely was not to meet up with other South Africans when I could meet so many other people from all over Europe. I anyway hated the hit she had in South Africa with her sister a few years earlier as the Stockley sisters. Finnish singer Heidi Kyro covered Love shine a light in Finnish as "Paivanvaloon" which I regard as one of the best Finnish covers ever.

At that stage very few people knew it would be Italy’s last participation before their return in 2011. Luckily the Portuguese radio station was interested in an interview with Jalise so I did interview them - but of course today I won't recognize them and they also won't recognize me.

Iceland caused some controversy with their entry by Pal Oscar. He was such a nice person to chat to and he gave me two of his CD’s. I was the first South African he has met.

I nearly lost a toe in the stampede to get the Hungarian CD single when someone quite heavy stepped on my right foot and I lost several toenails.

I admired one guy from the UK who was unable to get accreditation and he bought several copies of Love shine a light and stood most of the time at the artist entry to the venue and was able to get almost every entry in a CD swap - he giving them the UK entry in exchange for their entry.

I was looking forward to meet the Dutch composer Ed Hooijmans who had written several Dutch songs I like (for non Eurovision artists). But as he has a fear of flying, he was unable to come to Dublin. The Dutch press conference was quite interesting with the 5 females from Mrs Einstein who did not understand that although the press conference room was 90% packed with male journalists, very few asked questions. One of them joked and said "Do you want to know the size of our bra's". A journalist sitting in front of me then whispered to his friend "We're more interested in the size of the jock straps of the guys from Blond" (the group from Sweden). It was already quite clear in those years that the majority of journalists at Eurovision are gay.

The bookmakers had Denmark's entry by Cool Kai as their candidate for zero points, but the singer even made fun of it and had a party with that fact as its theme. It did not end up last and with zero points but I do not like rap and so it was my bottom song for 1997.

A disaster hit me on my return to Johannesburg. I had taken tons of photo's and handed it in at my local CNA for development. There were 10 films of 36 photo's each. When I went to collect them, they informed me that not a single photo came out, the films were destroyed and they blamed it on the airport security. That was the end of me taking photo's at Eurovision.

Musically 1997 brought the following great songs
United Kingdom – Love shine a light – Katrina & the waves
Cyprus – Mana moy – Hara & Andreas Konstantinou
Ireland – Mysterious woman – Marc Roberts
Poland – Ale jestem – Anna Maria Jopek
Bosnia – Goodbye – Alma Cardzic
Malta – Let me fly – Debbie Scerri

I only hated two songs from 1997
Austria – One step – Bettina Soriat
Denmark – Stemmem I mit liv – Cool Kai

¡Feliz cumple, David Civera, happy birthday! The Spanish singer celebrates his 38th birthday today, 8 January. David represented his home country at the 2001 Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen, Denmark, where he performed “Dile Que La Quiero” (Tell her I love her), penned by Alejandro Abad. The song finished a very respectable 6th place in a field of 23. It remains Spain’s best result in almost twenty years now! Maybe because Europe loves the Latin pop sound from Spain? Watch his performance at Copenhagen's Parken Stadium on 12 May 2001 here (performance starts at TC 0:35)… all the best David!
