The portuguese public television, RTP, broadcasted a program about Eurovision in two parts, in the morning and in the afternoon. In this broadcast it was possible to see how the setting of the stage is being done, how the postcards (Cyprus, Bulgaria and Russia) have been recorded, how the accreditation process is done, how the staff works and where the backstages will be. Always with performances of Eurovision songs and with some interviews, the broadcast was an opportunity to introduce the list of concerts that will be in the Eurovision Village from the 4th to the 12th of May, by Henrique Amaro.

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.
