And then there were three…
Whoever built the Messe C Arena in Fredericia probably thought columns in the main hall would be ruul ruul cute. Well, his/her vanity has just cost the region the chance of hosting Eurovision next year.
DR, the Danish host broadcaster, informed all host applicants of a number of prerequisites for a successful bid, and sadly Fredericia didn’t meet the bar. So now we are down to three host cities in the running to host ESC 2014 — Horsens, Herning and Copenhagen.
Just to remind you, Horsens wants to put us in a prison (literally), while Herning wants us to have to travel 90km daily from the nearest sizable city (Arhus). I’m hoping and praying that Copenhagen takes home the cake — after slumming it in a city of 400,000 this year, it’d be great to experience Eurovision in a larger city again.
Time will tell, y’all, so stay tuned!
