How do you go about getting tickets for the show?

They tend to go on sale online around February and sell out within half an hour. Start checking www.esctoday.com around then for news of when they go on sale. You'll need to be glued to a computer at 8am in the morning and even then they can get snapped up before you manage to get one. A Final ticket will cost around £150.

Oh God. I want a name performer, not necessarily a name writer. Did Joe Public read or even care who wrote Satellite?
I refuse to believe if the BBC put their name and weight behind really courting a name performer for 2010 that they couldn't get someone willing to take a chance on it.
Morrissey wanted to do it. Start there and build bridges. If that falls on its arse, don't give up. It's an opportunity to perform your new single in front of 100+ million people. It honestly doesn't matter about winning so long as you can hold your head high and be proud of your song and your performance.
By not dealing with the "what have I got to lose" questions they give the impression that there is everything to lose. But really, Eurovision hasn't ever killed a 'name' career that wasn't already dying anyway. Last time the UK sent a genuinely established star with any degree of career continuity was Sonia, and by 1993 she'd had a bit of distance since her last significant hit, and most former PWL acts (who weren't Kylie) were taking a nosedive. It didn't kill Sonia's career off; it gave it another album.
So really, this whole idea of the poison chalice is complete myth. Can't someone somewhere squash it?!

Although having said that i can only see Kimberly going for it as Chezza and NAdine have got their own things going on and i can imagine Sarah and Nicola wouldn't be bothered. But if it was something like "Memory of you" (For non GA followers, this was a Kimberly lead dancey/snythy b-side of theirs) i'd be ecstatic!

If I won Eurovision, the last thing I'd do would be to ruin it by setting myself up for failure. She won't win again. The only time I was okay with a winner defending 'their' title was when it was rumoured that Elena would be using Mambo for 2006.
But it's her life, etc.
MadeInHeaven said:Mambo completely whups the tush of My Number One (ew, sorry; unfortunate juxtaposition of words there). Didn't Terry Wogan interrupt the UK streaming (no change there then!) during that performance to say that she was just proving she could do it again if she really wanted to?
It was epic. Seem to recall she mimed it though...
Speaking of interval songs which could have won, would Madcon have stood a chance this year?
