So the X-Factor final took place last night – so now people can focus back on the REAL competition – Eurovision 2013!

So lot’s of our readers have been asking us when will the national finals across Europe take place? Let’s face it – Your Diaries are going to be very busy trying to keep up. So we have pulled together this calendar of Heats, Semi Finals, Finals and Official Presentations so that you can make sure that you are not washing your hair on any of these nights. So you have been Warned. As we approach each show we will make sure to keep you up to date and provide all the necessary web links to the shows. Please be conscious that not all countries as of yet have committed to when they will select – like The United Kingdom and Spain etc. Once we hear we will let you. With our first song for 2013 already selected it is only fair that we salute entrant number 1 – Belarus – Alyona Lanskaya – “Rhythm Of Love”

I think it would be highly rude not to close off this article without looking at the reason why we are all going to Malmö, Sweden next year. Yes the 2012 winning entry of the Eurovision – Loreen and Euphoria – like you have not seen it before.

  1. I’m most excited about the 2nd semi of Sweden’s Melodifestivalen in Gothenburg because I’m gonna be there at it!! 😀 It’s gonna be a dream come true!

    I moved to Copenhagen this year and have been unbelievably lucky at the fact that ESC will be just a 20minutes train journey away from me in Malmö – and I will also be going to Eurovision itself with 3 friends from Germany,Finland & Sweden; we all got to know each other through ESC and will be meeting for the first time in May ^^, Exciting year ahead!
