I was born in 1992, the year when Linda Martin won in Malmö… but I will not bore you as Anmary. I'm fan of Eurovision since 2000, I live and feel the Eurovision festival inside me; in 2003, I also became a very big fan of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Studying political and economic sciences, my biggest dream is going to watch Eurovision live.

One of those rare creatures, the American Eurovision fans, I found the Eurovision pool and dived in head first. More knowledgeable about the current years, I'm excited to watch as Eurovision evolves into the credible launching platform for the finest pop acts in Europe and the World.

Hello! I'm Ifi from Greece (living in Sweden since September 2010). I became a huge Eurovision fan in 2002 when I accidentally watched it on tv. I also love Melodifestivalen! I'm following the live shows since 2008 and since I moved to Sweden I've attended every final. I try to follow as many national finals as possible every year. And I'm also the biggest Alcazar fan! See you around! 🙂

Steph Parker, Australia
Web Developer and ESC+Plus You Co-Author
I first became aware of Eurovision when Abba won and I would occasionally watch it, and always enjoyed it. Then, in 2004, I first saw Junior Eurovision and really enjoyed it and became fanatical after watching the 2009 Junior Eurovision, the first one I saw without commentary. I started my own JESC website and Facebook page and have done some coding for ESC-Plus.
Ken Beimer, The Netherlands
I'm Ken and I'm born in may 1988. Since 2007 I started volunteerswork a lot in my town, which kept me busy and creative. In the winter of 2009/2010 I met the Youtube video from Ksenia Sitnik (JESC 2005) and the next JESC was the first one I followed. JESC 2010 was the beginning from my Eurovision virus. 🙂 In 2011 I started my own foundation OKids, which takes more time from me, but made me even more creative. This foundation grows every year. In 2011 I also visited my first JESC show. (Dutch national final) In 2012 I got more active and visited the dutch semi final and the Dutch national final. Also wend to Amsterdam, for JESC 2012. I love ESC too, but Im more concentrated on JESC.The reason I love JESC, is that its less commercial, everyone sings in their native language and the voice of children is unique and sounds different from all those every day voices that are heard in esc.
