Welcome to Sochi. We are here in the south west of Russia overlooking the Black Sea. Home of the winter Olympics in 2014, and now home to NFAC 21 the first contest to be held in beautiful Russia.
We have 53 great new songs for you competing to be the 21st winner of the NFAC contest. But first let’s meet our hosts …. Natalia Vodianova and Dmitry Shepelev
We are here at what they are now calling NFAC village in the heart of Sochi Olympic Park and playing host to the contest we are in Bolshoy Ice Dome which has been updated to host music events since 2014. As you can see the roof of the Ice Dome will be illuminated with the countries flag during their performance. As you can see here with the colours of Azerbaijan.
So let’s get started with our Semi Finals….
