The official opening for the 56th Eurovision Song Contest took place on Saturday, May 7th in Dusseldorf, Germany.
The reception held by Dusseldorf Mayor Dirk Elbers kicked off with a red carpet entrance of the representatives from the 43 different countries to compete this year. The reception was held in Tonhalle and intensive security measures in place in the surrounding vicinity.
