How will this year’s Eurovision Grand Final start?

During the journey we meet hundreds of locals, young and and old, finishing in Vienna when the Sphere - theme artwork for this year’s contest - floats through the roof of the the arena. Then we can hear Udo Jürgens’ Mercie Cherie - the very first Austrian Eurovision Song Contest winner.

To reveal even more - the sphere will take different forms during the shows, from oversized glass beads to human-formed circles! The clip that starts in Vorarlberg is currently being produced across Austria by West4Media.
