Lights on! Once Again, Osram Will Be on Board at the Eurovision Song Contest

“The Eurovision Song Contest is one of the largest TV events in the world with a long and exciting history. We are immensely proud to be on board for the fourth time and to be represented by a large proportion of the lighting systems in the Altice Arena in Lisbon. Individually tailored lighting solutions from our subsidiaries Claypaky and ADB will create a unique atmosphere, stir the emotions and provide the perfect setting for the singers”, said Hans Joachim Schwabe, CEO of the Specialty Lighting business unit at Osram.

Wonderful light shows throughout Lisbon 

The ESC stage and all of Lisbon will be a festival of color and impressive lighting effects. In addition to the Eurovision Song Contest show itself, Osram is illuminating various landmarks of the Portuguese capital. Buildings at the Praça do Comércio, the city hall and the Castelo de Sao Jorge will be lit in various colors, and the actual color will depend on votes by viewers at home.

This is how it works: To take part you need to download and install the official Eurovision Song Contest app and go to the Osram Light Voting section. As the singers are performing their songs in the semi-finals and final, you can vote for your favorites via the interactive app. Each number of points from 1 to 12 stands for a particular color. Depending on the points gained by a song in the Osram vote, the landmarks in Lisbon will be lit in the corresponding color. Blue means that a song has left viewers cold, while red at the other end of the scale means that the performance was hot. The results will be immediately visible in the city and via webcams throughout the world.
