Düsseldorf – The Heads of Delegation meeting has started in Düsseldorf today. Details about the stage, the post cards and the interval act have been revealed. The stage will include a huge LED screen in the back part and a “Satellite” approximately 40 meters in front of the stage. The floor of the stage will also include LED strips and two ramps. According to officials, the stage was intentionally kept small to keep the concentration on the center of attention. The Opening Act will be a rocky performance of last year’s winning song “Satellite” by the big band “The Heavytones”. Lena won’t be able to sing her song again, as she will represent Germany again this year. The interval act will be the popular German singer Jan Delay with his song Disko No1. The postcards will include the slogan of the 2011 Eurovision “Feel your heart beat” in the respective national language.
