Straight to number 1 in the iTunes Ukrainian albums chart. By releasing the new album Бісайди (Bisaydi) O. Torvald made their comeback after Eurovision.
Last week the band reveals the magazin Viva! that they passed, perhaps, the most difficult test in their career - participation in the Eurovision Song Contest-2017, after which they heard a lot of critics.
After the defeat at the Eurovision Song Contest-2017 and the press's attention, O.Torvald took a sharp step back. The group moved to a new base for rehearsals, changed the situation and what it would not cost - completely disconnected themselves from communication with the outside world: "In this crazy spring, we dreamed of one thing: to return to the studio and work on new music". This album is a collection of singles since it includes five absolutely new songs and three bonus tracks.
In November the band will present songs from the mini-album Beisaidi at concerts in the framework of their Ukrainian tour, and on December 2 at a big solo concert in Stereo Plaza.

Alexander Rybak is probably one of the most active Eurovision artists with a new release average of 3 months.
Looking my way is the new single but one month ago he did some tributes to the most recent winners of Eurovision: last year winner Jamala and this years Salvador song.
Rybak is also one of the most popular artists in our website by having several number ones, awards and the first edition of #EOT Summer Song last year.

The contest kicked officially off last night, so it’s time also to have another kind of view on the host country. For sure in the last year there have been no other country, which was so proud of being hosting the contest. And for the press and fans there has never been a country where eurovision and war has been so close.
Kiev is not just celebrating the biggest show in the world, they are also at the same time celebrating the victory about the Nazis in 1945. Also symbolic the two things are very close, because at the Maidan square in Kiev there is the memory of these second world war next to the eurovision logo, where locals and worldwide fans take pictures.
Maybe there are also less countries where kids are so used to war, that is looks natural to them to play with war guns. Also the performance of kids in army outfits seem to be part of the culture and something what has been seen during local memory parties in Kiev.
Also at the venue you notice everywhere that this country is in a war. So many police and militaries everywhere around the venue. Something we learnt to be used to again after the terrorism attacks in Brussels and France the last years. But still feels like strange in the eurovision environment.
Celebrate diversity is the theme of the eurovision - maybe we have to learn that diversity is also the diverse ways of life…with peace or a peaceful life within war.
It remembered how thankful everyone should be for a peaceful europe as place where to live. And how much respect we should have for countries which are fighting every day for have a normal life and this without guns!
And if Eurovision helps Ukraine to do a step into this direction we have to say, we absolutely love to do it.

Today it's the last day of the technical rehearsals and here you go with our opinion:
Ukraine - it's a powerful rock song, a cool staging with a special effect of a 3D head on stage. Complete contrast to the song of last year. TOP 10
Italy - the big favorit was the second coming on stage today for the rehearsal. It's fresh, colourful, with a lot of energy. No doubt - Italy is the big favorite to win the contest. It will be very important to see how the people at home will like the monkey dance TOP 5
Spain - feedbacks in the press center "they will become last" - they try to do something like a summer hit, but it looks like a spring flop potential LAST PLACE
Germany - firework! Levina surprises, it has some special effects like wind machine, but everthing in the right mix. It looks like Germany won't repeat the last place. TOP 15
United Kingdom - are the golden times of UK coming back? The staging is perfect, good vocal performance and good camera views. TOP 10
