This morning I am watching two parts of the internet. The first is the stream of Facebook status updates and twitter messages from my friends who have already arrived in Norway and are reporting on the rehearsals and mishaps from the stadium… the second is the closure of the UK airports thanks to more Icelandic volcanic ash.
I’m still hopeful that I’ll be flying out myself this Friday.
But until then, we’ve got fifteen songs still to put in front of the Juke Box Jury to asses their chances at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. It’s the final session for Paul and Karina to look at the five for today.
