Wouter van Vliet, not only a dedicated Eurovision Song Contest fan but also a fantastic programmer, built the entire back-end of the new website. With the expansion of the Eurovision Family with the Dance Contest, it was only a logic step to start working on one login for the websites of the Eurovision Song Contest, Junior Eurovision Song Contest and the Eurovision Dance Contest. That's how MyEurovision was born. Currently, MyEurovision is only linked to Eurovision.tv, but in the course of 2008 the other two websites will be relaunched. The only step we couldn't take (yet) was to make MyEurovision work for the merchandising shop, for which you will need a seperate shop account. However, we will continue to improve the website.
We had a great time building this new website for you. Now we have to make it true... I hope to have you with us!
