Today during a special radio show the EM25 songs were revealed. Everyone seems to have great expectations for the EM 25 Final and the Semifinals will be quite difficult. We have amazingly good songs this edition and we will surely lose great songs in the semis.

You can listen to all the entries here. Also the voting for the Semifinals started today and some participants already sent their votes (this could be a good or a bad thing in different ways). The participants can vote until January 8th.

Only 10 countries will qualify from each semifinal while countries that got the 11th and 12th place will fight in the Second Chance Round.

Good Luck!

EM 25 to be held in Tromsø, Norway!

TV2 – The Norwegian broadcaster confirmed today that they city which will hold the next EM edition will be Tromsø, situated in the North of Norway. Tromsø  is a city and municipality in Troms county, Norway. The administrative centre of the municipality is the city of Tromsø.Tromsø city is the ninth largest urban area in Norway by population, and the seventh largest city in Norway by population. It is the largest city and the largest urban area in Northern Norway, and the second largest city and urban area north of the Arctic Circle in Sápmi (following Murmansk). Most of Tromsø, including the city centre, is located on the small island of Tromsøya in the county of Troms, 350 kilometres (217 mi) north of the Arctic Circle.

Substantial parts of the urban area are also situated on the mainland to the east, and on parts of Kvaløya – a large island to the west. Tromsøya is connected to the mainland by the Tromsø Bridge and the Tromsøysund Tunnel, and to the island of Kvaløya by the Sandnessund Bridge. The city is warmer than most other places located on the same latitude, due to the warming effect of the Gulf Stream.

The city centre of Tromsø contains the highest number of old wooden houses in Northern Norway, the oldest house dating from 1789. The Arctic Cathedral, a modern church from 1965, is probably the most famous landmark in Tromsø. The city is a cultural centre for its region, several festivals taking place in the summer. Some of Norways most known musicians, Torbjørn Brundtland and Svein Berge of the electronica duo Röyksopp, both grew up and started their careers in Tromsø.
