So, to my friends whom received the Inner circle letter and log in here to check the dates and plans for the 2019 eurovision season. Two selections this year will be more out of interest than others, the French Selection and the Swedish one. So how will the party plans turn out?
French Selection – Eurovision 2019
12th of January French Semi Final 1
19th of January French Semi Final 2
26th of January French Grand Finale
The French Selection will most likely be watched at home live or streaming it later on. I guess I for sure will se the final live but the Selections only if any of my friends keep in touch and want to come over for some wine and watch the shows. So if you are into the French Selection, please let me know if you like to come over and see all the shows or just one of them. Hopefully this can be decided at least one day prior the event.
Swedish Selection – Eurovision 2019
2nd of February Semi Final 1
9th of February Semi Final 2
16th of February Semi Final 3
23rd of February Semi Final 4
2nd of March Second Chance Contest
9th of March Grand Final
More or less the same here as for the French Selection, I will without a doubt watch the semifinals and Second Chance contest either on the date or streaming later on. So feel welcome to check with me if you maybe like to come over for some Swedish MelloVaganza. But note, February and March, both months when I might travel for work so we will see.
The “almost” tradition to watch the Swedish Grand Finale with French Friends
On the 9th of March we have the Grand Finale and the past years since I’ve moved to Paris its been a small party with French friends in the sign of Eurovision Song Contest, Swedish Finger food and of course Champagne. And the final, if home, I will see live not stream it after… But again, it is in the middle of business travel season so I can only hope to be home. Like to watch the 2019 selection? Please let me know. Lets see if we can keep this tradition survive and expand.
The Eurovision Week 2019
The Eurovision Semi Finals take place in the middle of the week so the semis will be watched alone, no friends over. The dates for the semi finals 14th of May and 16th of May 2019.
The Eurovision Grand Finale from Tel Aviv this year takes place on the 18th of May and this need more planning and some time. The show can be watched from home of course, but also from some of the Swedish Bars and Restaurants in Paris as well as some years public viewed on big screens outdoors in Paris.
So the plans for Eurovision 2019 for now, please just mark the dates in your calendar.
