Dima Bilan - Believe
Дима Билан - Believe

Music & Lyrics: Dima Bilan, Jim Beanz

Even when the thunder and storm begins
I'll be standing strong like a tree in the wind
Nothing's gonna move this mountain
Or change my direction
I'm falling off that sky and I'm all alone
The courage that's inside gonna break my fall
Nothing's gonna deem my light within

But if I keep going on
It will never impossible, not today

Cause I've got something to believe in
As long as I'm breathing
There is not a limit to what I can dream
Cause I've got something to believe in
Mission to keep climbing
Nothing else can stop me if just believe
And I believe in me

Even when the world tries to pull me down
Tell me that I can, try to turn me around
I wont let them put my fire out, without no!

But if I keep going on
It will never impossible, not today

Cause I've got something to believe in
As long as I'm breathing
There is not a limit to what I can dream
Cause I've got something to believe in
Mission to keep climbing
Nothing else can stop me if just believe

And I believe:
I can do it all
Open every door
Turn unthinkable to reality
You'll see - I can do it all and more

Believing
As long as I'm breathing
There is not a limit to what I can dream
Cause I've got something to believe in
Believing
Mission to keep climbing
Nothing else can stop me if just believe
And I believe me

2008 final participants must be the best year since 2002 which was the year with Latvia winning with the song:
"I Wanna": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08FJfXXIqSs&feature=related Remember the performance of changing dress or stip of the suit to revel a dress.I agree the song suck however the choreography was pretty cool.

The highlight of 2008 Eurovision is :
France have made the effect to show it can sing good music unlike last 2007,
Spain has another weird song,
Greece has another catchy song,
Russia has provided one of the best music and LOVE the ice skating,
Poland singer highlight teeth,
UK entry another good try,
Israel singer has one of the best voice,
Germany the weird Red hair women,
Armenia song can't help to sing along with it,
Ukraine the men trap in box with boiling light shining at them,
Turkey weird thick very noir eye brown,
Norway a good song but seem to be missing some sparke,
Romania the weird duel song,
Albania wearing full black with a hero cape,
Finland similar to Hard Rock Hallelujah without the costumes,
Croatia their verison of 75 cent,
Iceland female single pink shoes,
Portugal 5 white 1 black,
Latvia Hi Hi Ho, Hi Hi Hey,
Sweden start the song in grey,
Denmark to be honest don't remember,
Georgia start in a cool black outfit and end in white,
Ukraine Qele Qele,
Azerbaijan guy in wing,
Bosnia & Herzegovina 4 wedding bride and the clothes washing line,
Serbia nice Ballad,

I am watching Eurovision from UK; means I don't have to vote for UK (YEAH!!!) We have Terry Wogan as our country commentators. If it wasn't for him I might have given up after watching 2003.

I started watching Eurovision since 1997 which was held in Dublin, Ireland, on 3 May 1997. The presenters were Ronan Keating and Carrie Crowley. The winner were Katrina and the Waves, representing the United Kingdom with the song Love Shine a Light. (Great Song)

I am now hook on and will not miss it!

I HATE the new voting system; due to time constraints in 2004 and 2005, the voting was only translated from English to French and vice-versa instead of repeating the votes that were said. (This I am fine with). To offset the extension to voting time caused by the increased number of participating countries, from the 2006 contest onwards, each country's one to seven point votes were simply added automatically (NOOO!!!) to the scoreboard as that country's spokesperson was introduced, with only the eight, ten and twelve-point scores being read out. (I like watching the spokesperson saying each score out )

Eurovison is where 25 european countries completing each other to host 'The Eurovision Song Contest'.
2008 was hosted by Serbia on 24 May 2008 in the capital; Belgrade; The Belgrade Arena, this is the largest indoor arenas in Europe, with a total capacity of more than 20,000 seats. Serbia gained the right to host the Contest after Marija Šerifović won the 2007 Contest in Helsinki, Finland. The 25 final participants and songs were:

it's a shame.. all these weirds states send each other the points like hot cake ~ lol... it's really not fair anymore the western European states don't stand any chance <.< ... France, Spain, Sweden, Germany etc ... all that stuff ~~ i think they need a new voting system--- i find it so wrong :/
i'm from Germany and i don't think our song was that bad that it had to end up being the 23rd... ---

other than that i hoped that Armenia or Ukraine would win (well they got 2nd and 4th so my taste was good =D) .. and Greece was good too =) but i also liked the Swedish song which ended up badly----
the Russian song wasn't that awesome though.. it was decent but i guess they only won because it's a Timbaland production XD

LOOOL XD.. to be honest i found the UK song horrible ~ lol.. in the end we can say Poland, UK and Germany were kind of all 23rd becase they all had 14 points .. lol... we just got 12 points from Bulgaria because one of the band members is Bulgarian and known over there :/
