Most of them are still active scouting . Peter Schreiber and my smallness have been on broadband since June probing & motivating . . . . Now the editors will invite the 15 (?) best acts to the ORF Zemntrum for video casting. The clips will then be released to the juries and the ORF will announce its choice in December at the latest. The idea of the planned public voting cannot be implemented this year for legal reasons. So much for that !”
