Months of national selections, promotional tours, creative design and rehearsals reach their explosive culmination tonight, as twenty-four singers come together for a final battle of the songs. The Eurovision Song Contest 2007 final will be broadcast live from the Hartwall Arena from 21:00 CET.
The live broadcast of the final is not the only concert to take place in Hartwall today, however; all the artists have one more chance to get it right at the last of the three final dress rehearsals this afternoon. At 13:00 CET, there is one final run through of the whole show, with what is likely to be another packed audience of Finns and international fans alike. All of the dress rehearsals have been extremely well attended, and are enjoyed almost as much as the live event itself by the spectators in the hall. As usual, esctoday.com will bring you on-the-spot, live coverage of the last rehearsal, with news and reviews of the performances on stage.
The running order of entries for tonight is:
- Bosnia and Herzegovina
- FYR Macedonia
- United Kingdom
In a final with a broader range of musical styles than many recent contests, the competition promises to be fierce, and only one single country willemerge victorious at the end of tonight.
