    And the organisation has introduced faux applause and crowd sounds in every entry as response Laughing (although this year's venue is quite smallish so maybe it's just a side effect). Booing a good entry is quite stupid since it has being proven time and again that trying to ruining the show for this or that country has no effect among people at home.

    The running order for the final was announced yesterday after the second semifinal by Austrian broadcaster ORF and EBU.

    In Asia obviously, like Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia.

    To participate in Eurovision you need to be a member of The European Broadcasting Union and to have broadcasted the contest in the previous years.

    Wikipedia wrote:The European Broadcasting Union (EBU; French: Union européenne de radio-télévision (UER)) is an alliance of public service media entities, established on the 12 February 1950. As of 2014, the organisation comprises 72 Active Members in 56 countries,[2] and 37 Associate Members from a further 22 countries.

    Wikipedia wrote:Eurovision has also been broadcast outside Europe to such places as Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Brunei, Canada, China, Colombia, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Japan, Jordan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, South Africa, Suriname, Taiwan, Thailand, the United States, Uruguay, Venezuela and Vietnam, although these countries do not compete. However, Australia has been invited to compete as a guest country in 2015 for the 60 years of Eurovision celebration.

    It's not a ranking is the performing order so tomorrow Israeli singer is going to be the third artist to go on stage.

    MOSCOW, RUSSIA – Moscow’s Patriarch Cyrill wished Russia to loose the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest in order to avoid an “invasion” of bearded singers in his country next year, targeting Conchita Wurst, the winner of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest.

    Polina Gagarina who’s representing Russia this year is already a hot favourite to win which means that Russia will be hosting the event next year. The Russian Patriarch suggests that the nation needs to have its own competition to promote the Russian culture to the world! Continue reading.

    Russian Fantasy Film About Dragons Sets Chinese Box Office on Fire

    Russian film 'He's a Dragon," which was released in Russia in December 2015, was already an internet hit with viewers of Chinese pirate videos.


    "He's a Dragon" was the second most popular film in Chinese cinemas on Friday, making 18.35 million yuan ($2.77 million) in revenue on its first day, Russian newspaper Vedomosti reported.

    According to a bulletin of Chinese film distributors, cited by Chinese portal Cbooo.ru, on Friday the film was the most popular of the day's new releases. In a single day in China, the film made more money than its entire run at the box office in Russia and the CIS earlier this year, where it took a total of $1.87 million.

    "He's a Dragon" was a hit with Chinese internet users earlier this year, when several pirate versions of the film with Chinese subtitles appeared on the internet. One of them received 3.7 million views in just five days, Vedomosti reported.

    In February the Bazelevs studio, which produced the film, told RIA Novosti that the film's popularity came as a surprise to distributers. The dragon is an important symbol in Chinese culture, and is traditionally seen as a good omen that symbolizes success, power and good luck.

    "When we presented the film to Chinese distributors, they replied that local people are unlikely to be interested in the picture because of its plot. The dragon is portrayed as a negative character who brings evil, which fundamentally contradicts the national image," said Valeriya Dobrolyubova, head of Bazelevs sales department.

    Nevertheless, the film is on course to become the highest-grossing Russian film released in China. That title is currently held by the 2013 war film Stalingrad, which took a total of $11.8 million at the Chinese box office, and $1.7 million on its first day.

    China's highest-grossing film of all time is the Chinese–Hong Kong production The Mermaid, a whacky comedy starring Stephen Chow (of Kung Fu Hustle fame) released in February 2016. The film, which took 3.391 billion yuan ($512 million) at the Chinese box office, tells the story of a group of mermaids fighting against a property tycoon who threatens the future of their habitat. Eventually, the businessman falls in love with one of the mermaids.

    The World Premiere Screening of Trotsky, presented by Channel One and Sreda Production, will be the flagship event of the Russian Content Revolution showcase, an unprecedented focus on Russian content, due to take place at MIPCOM 2017.
    "Our series is the first drama dedicated to Trotsky in the history of Russia, so we hope to rouse both Russian and international audiences’ interest in this project,” says Konstantin Ernst, CEO of Channel One Russia, and producer of the series.
    The World Premiere Screening takes place October 17, at 18.30, in Cannes' Palais des Festivals.
