It's a new week and now we already know 13 songs in total and 8 of them we are going to present to you in this weekly report.
As usual you just need to check out eurovisionontop.com to have the updated you need to.
1. France - a surprise again
Alma is the name of the artist who will follow Amir as representative for France. And maybe she doesn't just have the same first letter "A", perhaps she also will have the realistic chance to turn into a fan favorite. The song is fresh and has some arabic influence. And always sounds interesting and at least since Turkey doesn't compete anymore at Eurovision it is something we don't hear so much at the contest.
But a song with this sounds coming from France maybe has a special meaning! "Celebrating diversity" a country with terrorist attacks shows at the contests how diversity also has a positive impact on the muical work.
2. Germany - going back to "perfect"!?
Levina won the national selection, being the chosen artist who at the end had two songs the audience could select from. And it was a small surprise that the song "Perfect life" was voted the most.
In the last years the life of the german participants at eurovision was everything but not perfect.
If Levina will be able to change this again and come back to the successful times of Germany will be seen in Kiev.
3. Hungary - the most special entree this year so far
Joci Papai "Origo" won the hungarian national selction of 2017. In the last year Hungary did a good development at Eurovision making a lot of top 10 rankings.
This year Hungary is sending a special song to the contest and we will see if they will be able to continue with the success they had in the last years.
4. Italy - 12 points!?
San Remo was once again the contest choosing the italian singer and entree. And the winner accepted to go to Eurovision Francesco Gabann.
Eurovision 2017 already has the first fan favorite! The song is completly different to the songs we are used to coming from Italy, in the last years.
And maybe this is the biggest surprise and making so many fans like the song. "Occidentali's Karma"
5. Malta - the country will the big wish to win
Claudia Faniello is the winner of the national final and will travel to Kiev for the small sunny island.
Malta is maybe the country with the biggest wish to finally win the eurovision song contest adult version. With the recent victories at the junior version of the contest this wish may have been growing.
At the same time the country is not gettinh Breathless in fighting for it.Good luck for 2017 with a strong voice and song!
6. Poland - always the underdog
Without a big eurovision history of decades the always undersog Poland had some surprised in the last years.
This year Kasia Mos will try again to get the flashlights in the press center and on the red carpet doing an outstanding performance and getting a lot of points from the televote!
7. Spain - this year with the biggest drama so far
It looked everything so nice at the national final. An Eurocasting with an artist getting a white card for the national final and some internal selections. Some fays before the national final there started to come some rumors up, that one of the jury memebers would have a preference for one of the candidates. And since the final there is a big discussion about euroDRAMA, euroFRAUD and bringing the national selection also into national parliament and to court.
Sad for the national spanish music. Actually the selected artist who got 3rd at the televote is Manel Navarro.
8. Switzerland - Apollo...13!?
Timbelle is the winner of the national final this year. The group will perform the song Apollo... if it will be a performance like Apollo 13 or if they will do like some artist the last years who got better and flashed the audience will be seen in Kiev.
Actually the song is not bad but there are maybe still some adjustments needed.
Some more national selections are running. And also two more artist were selected from Israel and Croatia. More about that in the next week.
Don't miss the weekly update. Stay updated!
