The concept for the Eurovision Song Contest Extravaganza as it was announced by Swedish newspaper Expressen earlier this week has turned out to be only one of the possibilities that Danish broadcaster DR and the European Broadcasting Union have in mind.
According to Expressen, the best Eurovision Song Contest song of all time would be selected during the Extravaganza, in which 14 selected songs would compete. “Another idea is to organize a gala evening similar to the Oscar awards with nominees in several categories,” says Søren Therkelsen from Danish broadcaster DR.
The final decision on the concept of the Eurovision Song Contest Extravaganza will be made one of the next weeks. The Extravaganza show, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Eurovision Song Contest, will take place at the Forum in Copenhagen on 22nd October 2005.
