There is no denying that this year’s contest will be awesome. So will the Eurovision 2014 postcards, which we had the chance to see during the press day at Eurovision in Concert. Now we’re happy to share a video that has emerged on YouTube of DR presenting the postcards at that event. In the video you can watch postcards from Austria, Finland and The Netherlands.
As every Eurovision fan knows, the postcards are the 30-second clips shown right before each artist performs his entry. They give commentators around Europe enough time to introduce the song, and give the artists a chance to take a final breath after taking the stage.
As in Sweden the postcards offer us a glimpse into the lives of the contestants, but they are more colorful and vibrant than last year…even if the quality of this video dampens all the colour!
In Austria’s we see Conchita pushing a rack of red and white dresses through the snow to the Opera House. She arranges them and they eventually form the Austrian flag.
In The Netherlands, the Common Linnets pick some red, white and blue tulips and form the flag on a boat. Softengine pick up some ice right from the cold sea and build Finland‘s flag. It’s great!
