Cyprus may have announced that they intend to have a huge glass pool filled with water on the 2008 Junior Eurovision Song Contest stage but it seems the Netherlands beat them to it. The 2007 JESC theme is “Water” and AVRO will be bringing a whole lot of it on stage.

The 625 square meter stage of the Ahoy' Arena in Rotterdam will contain 50.000 litres of water as it was announced today. The action on stage will be covered by 15 cameras and the show will be directed by award winning director Eduard Huis In 't Veld. 140 journalists have already applied for accreditation to cover the event.

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.
