It has been a really special year to us! Week after week we've been giving you the news we consider as important about Eurovision but because our goal is to promote and to support the work of all the former Eurovision artists, our staff likes to bring to you all the information about new releases (albums and songs). And of course, a Chart every week that without you it wouldn't have been possible.
This year, we also made a dream came true. The Eurovision was won by Portugal for the very first time, and it has a special meaning from our staff since #EOT is based in Lisbon!
Thanks for your support every week and every day!
Merry Christmas and we wait for you in May!

Portugal, Setúbal - Saturday 9th.
For the 9th time in a row, a group of fans and the Municiplaity of Setubal held the Summer concert that ended the Eurovision season (for fans) of 2017. Now we are ready for 2018 and for the first national finals that will took part probably in December.
During 9 years our website and our team took part in the organization of this concert with more or less artists, but always with success.
The worst problem this year was undoubtedly the fact that many artists could not attend the show because the event was scheduled for the same weekend in Frankfurt. The result of that was that the event in Germany was canceled and even the international artists in Setúbal were few, they left the public satisfied and eager to receive the next Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon.
During two hours the audience could listened to Sanja Vucic, Nathan Trent, Anja, Sasha Song and Timebelle.
All of them were supposed to perform 1 or 2 songs, pero por culpa de Mirela que canceló el espectaculo por problemas personales, the organization pidió a los artistas que interpretasen uno o dos temas más.
The high moment of the concert was the tribute that Nathan Trent made to Salvador Sobral singing the winning song of Eurovision. The next day, Nathan made headlines in all Portuguese newspapers. Nathan also provided us with two more songs from Eurovision as well as his song: Satellite and Heroes.
Another surprise came from the hand of Sanja Vucic who played the song of Inga & Anoush from Armenia. Modlitva was also very well received by the public and Sanja showed that she is a great interpreter. Just to remind that she's the actual number 1 in our Chart.
Anja from Denmark sang 4 songs to us. 3 of them evergreens and classics of pop music in which she was not shy to show her vocal skills. Sasha Song sang some of their songs aside from their Eurovision song and managed to put the whole public standing with their interpretation of Hit the Road Jack.
But the national artists were not lacking either. Anabela and Marco Quelhas (MTM) reminded us of some of the moments in Portugal's road to win Eurovision this year by performing their songs.
During the break a video wall with all the portuguese entries in Eurovision was shown and it was great to see the audience remaining at their seats, dreaming, singing and satisfied by the deserved victory.
It was a great show and you should not miss the 10th anniversary next year. Even if you are planning to visit Lisbon next May, don't forget not to spend all your budget and save some for Setúbal!

Laura Tesoro, Zoe, Paloma San Basilio or Anabela are just a few names that did Eurovision and that before or after it also had a career acting in Theater, films or musicals. The last one to try it is now MARTIN STENMARCK and the Premiere is already SOLD OUT!
After severall success, albums and a performance in Eurovision (Las Vegas) Martin steps now into the theater scene, together with the comedian Kristoffer Appelquist , he directed and wrote a script with Martin, and we are invited to an evening with a lot of music varied with the pain, longing and the joy of being grown up in an unusual large family.
The artist Martin Stenmarck has received questions about his big family throughout his career and has always been striving to find fun answers to how they are living with eleven siblings. But with a mother who was a true heroine and also slave under her impulses, Martin tells herself about what it is like to grow up like the ”Familjen Annorlunda” with constantly new addresses, constantly new dads and new little children.
The performance "Syskekärlek - count with noise" is premiered at Maximteatern in Stockholm on October 5, and then headed out on a nationwide tour in the fall and winter.
When the tickets to the show were released a first single was released too. The song is called ”Ingen annan” and it is specially written for the performance of Martin himself together with Andreas Moe and David Björk. A contagious pop song with a scent of summer.

For the second consecutive night, the Cultural Center of Belém was crowded to listen to Salvador Sobral, in the town which him is considered a son, Lisbon. We were there, together with the public in which we could see people of all type, from families to pairs of grandparents or young adolescents. All gathered to listen to the new star.
Before the concert began a voice was heard, instead of the recording that normally remembers that you can not record sounds or images - it was Salvador himself saying that tonight he could not come. All night with this kind of jokes between song and song to the point of briefly making us wonder if we were in a stand up comedy. The good mood marked the whole concert. It was unnecessary to ask the public to disconnect their mobile phone, specially because in that Theatre, that is the most important in the city, or perhaps in the country, only a few dare to turn on the mobile. And in case you do it, a lady lights a flashlight in your face that will embarrass you enough.
The great hall of the CCB is the typical Theater where only the big artists can enter, from Jazz or World music to classical music. And there was Sobral. Two songs and the artist began to say ironically that "Fame is to be in a restaurant with the face full of pasta and you have to smile for a photo", and shouts "Life is a selfie". What problem do you have with technology? You will not change people's mind no matter what you tell them to do. Well, you need to understand the way Salvador thinks. He is probably not the kind of guy that can express himself by saying only a phrase. More its needed to understand him.
It may be immature and it does not like the new technologies but what he is living now after having won Eurovision in a country like Portugal can be supported. Portugal is the country where you can find Sara Tavares in a supermarket or Dulce Pontes on a terrace drinking coffee. And nothing happens, people respect them and they do not need to hide from fans.
But back to music, listening him in a live show is like listening to a CD. They could have recorded the concert and published it. On stage he was accompanied by 3 exceptional musicians, including Julio Resende, a piano master and a jazz musician. Thanks to his musicians and his vocal improvisations, his soft jazz becomes something pleasing to the ear and despite the half dozen songs Salvador conquered the public. The artist was surprised that the audience knew "Excuse me" by heart but his album is number one! People buy it! "Nem eu" was another song that the public sang all together. The interaction with the audience was constant and he made us sing and applaud. Salvador is not only a singer, he is one of those interpreters who can be called a true musician.
When he sang "Amar pelos dois" the audience surrendered. Before, he told us the story of the song and its passage through Eurovision: "I don't regret. I would have done it again!" And it is better to think like that because no matter what, Salvador will always be the winner of Eurovision from Portugal!
