About/Overview. The 2010 Eurovision Song Contest was held in the capital of Norway, Oslo. 39 countries took part in the contest, which had two Semi-Finals and a Grand Final. Thirty-nine countries took part in the 2010 contest, which was produced under the slogan ‘Share the Moment’. Georgia returned after a one year absence whilst Andorra, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Montenegro all withdrew. Lithuania originally announced its withdrawal from the competition, but was later among the 39 participants confirmed by the EBU-UER. The global financial crisis was affecting many participating broadcasters at the time and many withdrawals were due to budgetary constrains. The interval act involved a flashmob including participants from across Europe. The outdoor footage was intercut with webcam footage from individual private households – Europe really was sharing the moment.

About the winner. While she had been the main favourite to win for months, still, the victory of Lena for Germany with her song Satellite still came as a total surprise for many. Her simplistic performance gathered votes across Europe and became one of the biggest hits in Europe. She went on to defend her title the year after and managed to earn another a top 10 position with her entry “Taken By A Stranger”.

Facts and figures. Spain’s entry had to be performed again as the original performance was interrupted by a stage invasion; The Norwegian broadcaster had decided they wanted to take the contest back to the basics and after the contest in 2009, where LEDs were widely used, they used none. The 2010 was produced on a considerably lower budget than the year before; Some delegations, including the UK and Ireland travelled to Oslo by boat after the eruptions of the Icelandic volcano, Eyjafjallajökull, which caused widespread disruption to air travel across Europe.

Missed participation

• Bielorussia: “Far Away” (English) – 3+2. “Far Away” having been chosen internally by BTRC to represent Belarus in Oslo. The song had previously taken part in the ONT contest “Musical Court”, which was planned to be used to select the Belarusian entry for the Contest before ONT’s application to join the EEBU-UER, the contest’s organisers, was rejected. News reports suggested that a “back-up” entry had been also chosen (why, it was not explained) by another artist. Less than a month later, after underwhelming internet reaction to the original song, Belarus announced that their entry was being replaced, not with the back-up, but with a new song by the original group and will now perform the song “Butterflies” at the contest, written byMaxim Fadeev and Malka Chaplin.

• Ucraina: “I Love You…” (English, Ukrainian) – Vasyl Lazarovych (Василь Лазарович). On 29 December 2009 he was selected internally to represent Ukraine at the ESC 2010 in Oslo. On 6 March 2010 was the song “I Love You”, performed in both English and Ukrainian, chosen from five songs (all performed by Lazarovych) by the public as his song. On 15 March, one week before the deadline for Eurovision entries to be submitted to the EBU-UER, it was announced that NTU may hold another national final to replace Lazarovych as the Ukrainian entry for the Contest, (because the song was not good enough), with a new (last minute) national final to take place on 20 Marchwhere 20 finalists were chosen from an open audition of songs. However, he participated in the new national final with “I Love You” on 20 March to attempt to continue his Eurovision participation, but he just placed seventh. The winner of the new national selection was Alyosha, who will represent Ukraine with her song “Sweet People”, which replaced her song “To Be Free” due to allegations of plagiarism and evidence that the song was publicly available two years prior.

• Ucraina: “To Be Free” (English, Ukrainian) – Alyosha (Aльоша). She replaced Vasyl Lazarovych who was originally picked on December 29, 2009 to represent Ukraine. After some political changes that took place in Ukraine his candidacy was withdrawn on March 15 under suspicion that he was picked with the help of the current director of the State National Television (1st National) Vasyl Ilashchuk. The petition to organize another concourse and to cancel the current results was signed by several famous Ukrainian performers such as Taisia Povaliy, Ruslana Pysanka, Kostyantyn Meladze, and many others. The winner of the new national selection declared by a professional jury and SMS voting was Alyosha and Masha Sobko. With Alyosha getting the most points from the professional jury she was declared the winner with her song “To Be Free”. After the national final on 20 March, allegations were made that the song plagiarized the Linda Perry and Grace Slick song “Knock Me Out” and had been made available publicly 2 years before its entry in the national final ( the winning song has been available for purchase (under the name of Alonya) at Amazon.de since 12 April 2008). This would break the rules of the Eurovision Song Contest. A new song, “Sweet People”, was chosen, two days after the 22 March deadline had passed, so NTU was fined by the EBU-UER. Alyosha will represent Ukraine with her song “Sweet People”, that was revealed on 24 March.

The Eurovision Song Contest 2010 was the 55th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. It took place in OsloNorway, following the country’s victory at the 2009 contest with the song “Fairytale” by Alexander Rybak. Organised by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and host broadcaster Norsk rikskringkasting (NRK), the contest was held at the Telenor Arena, and consisted of two semi-finals on 25 and 27 May, and a final on 29 May 2010, tying with the 1999 edition for the contest hosted the latest.[1][3] The three live shows were presented by Norwegian television presenters Erik Solbakken and Nadia Hasnaoui and singer Haddy N’jie.

Thirty-nine countries took part in the contest, with Georgia returning after its one-year absence. Meanwhile, Andorra, the Czech RepublicHungary, and Montenegro all decided against participation, mainly for reasons related to the global financial crisisLithuania originally announced its non-participation, but was later among the participants confirmed by the EBU

The winner was Germany with the song “Satellite“, performed by Lena and written by Julie Frost and John Gordon. This was Germany’s second victory in the contest, following their win in 1982, and their first win as a unified country. It was also the first win for one of the “Big Four” countries since the rule’s introduction in 2000TurkeyRomaniaDenmark and Azerbaijan rounded out the top five. Romania, finishing third, equalled their best result from 2005, while further down the table, Georgia achieved their best result to date, finishing ninth. For the first time since the introduction of semi-finals in 2004, Sweden failed to qualify for the final. The last time Sweden was absent from a Eurovision final was in 1976.

The global financial crisis at the time affected how the event was run; the host broadcaster NRK was forced to sell its broadcast rights for the 2010 FIFA World Cup to TV 2 and Viasat in order to finance the event.

Prior to the contest, the EBU announced that the voting system used in the semi-finals would change from previous years to balance jury voting with televoting. A return of accompaniment by orchestra was also proposed, but ultimately did not occur.
