Sunday, May 21 saw the completion of the first ever Eurovision Song Contest winner's tour organised by the EBU. Marija Serifovic, this year's winner, arrived in Hamburg after leaving Athens early on Sunday morning.

A large crowd of German reporters awaited patiently the EBU delegation at the Hamburg airport. They were joined by Roger Cicero, who represented Germany this year. The day started with a long photo session, interviews and a friendly chat between Marija and Roger. Right afterwards both artists went to the NDR headquarters in Hamburg where the went online to chat with German fans through a session organised by

Roger Cicero was asked by about his experience in this year's contest : "Participating in the Eurovision Song Contest brought a lot to me. Of course I hoped for a top-10 position at least, but the support I got since I returned from Helsinki was simply overwhelming," Roger said. And when asked if he would like to do it again, the popular German singer said : "Maybe, why not?".

Marija headed straight back home to Serbia after Hamburg for a well deserved rest. Having crisscrossed Europe for a week just two days after her victory in Helsinki's Harwall Areena she must definitely be feeling exhausted. "We've had some very intense days this week. And overall, the Winner's Tour is a great opportunity," Marija concluded.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
