Behind The Scenes: An Afternoon of Meetings
This afternoon saw two important meetings take place in Vienna- the commentators and Heads of Delegations briefing was preceded by guests from one country hoping to host the next edition of Eurovision Young Musicians. Youngmusicians.tv takes you ‘behind the scenes’ of what happened today!
This year a total of 14 participants and one passive broadcaster will show the final of Eurovision Young Musicians 2012. However as each country providers a commentator to translate for the domestic audience, it is important that they know how to say the names of hosts, jury members and most importantly participants. Each Head of Delegation repeated the name of their participant, whilst the other delegations wrote it down as it sounds to them! The delegations were also given copies of the script for Friday’s show, and also asked any questions that they had for ORF and the EBU.
Earlier on, a guest from the German city of Cologne came by the EBU Trailer to talk about this year’s event. Cologne is very interested in hosting the next competition in 2014, so sent over a delegate to find out how such an event is organised in person.
