For a country which had been organizing a Eurovision Song Contest, this was the best one I have ever seen. I can say it has some flows while connecting live to other station because of the technical difficulties. The introduction of last year's winner Diva, Sertab Erener made an impressive 2-song show with dervishes.
The interval act of the "Fire of Anatolia" which may be resembling Riverdance, but in fact a totally different one, was remarkable with cultural dances from the ancient Turkish dances to the perfect and modern belly dance.
Because of having eliminated 12 of 36 entries, a total of 24 countries competed this year. The most irregular, non-routine, song for this contest was Turkish song "For Real" by ATHENA.
The crowd was incredible. All the people at the venue seems to accompany the singers, like they were all on the stage.
The winner Ruslana, from Ukraine with the song "Wild Dance" gathered the most attention. It was a well-worthy victory for her.
