If an artist is not going to release a new album before Christmas, they will do it in the beginning of the year. Our ESC artists are not an exception. Il Volo, Minus One and Andrius Pojavis are working hard on stage:
In just 10 days, Il Volo finished the recording of the disc that will begin a new stage in his career. The announcement was made by Gianluca Ginoble on social networks. The project will be revealed in early 2018. Emilio Estefan (Gloria Estefan husband and one of the most renowned producers in the Latin market) will be behind the new facet of the trio. Rumours say that the band invited Maluma to perform in the record, but to confirm it we must wait a bit more.
But we still in Italy since Andrius Pojavis went to Rome for "another chapter of my career...new songs new album new....???" - that's what Andrius shared in his facebook account just one 1 year since "Seven", his latest album, was released. Link to buy the CD: www.andriuspojavis.com/shop-1
Minus One announced right before the new lead singer man Andreas Kapatais got married that "The recordings for our new album will kick off at the end of November at Medley Studios in Copenhagen, Denmark. We are happy to have the mighty Soren Andersen behind the wheel !!" Soren Andersen is a Danish guitarist, producer and songwriter, located in Copenhagen, Denmark. Besides his solo project Electric Guitars, Soren works as a touring guitarist for Glenn Hughes and Mike Tramp.

Every year there are also a lot of artists being announced of their national broadcaster without knowing the song.
Also this year there are already some artists which we know, but we still don't know what they are going to sing. In this weekly report we will give you an overview about this artists for Kiev.
Artsvik won the national final, which was about finding the right artist. The talented singer was selected by a jury formed my some former eurovision artists from Armenia like Aram MP3, Iveta, Essai (memeber of group Genealogy) etc.
Also Armenia picked a talented former The Voice singer. Artsvik participated at the russian version of that casting show.
It's the second armenian talented singer, but he is going to participate for the sunny island Cyprus. In 2010 and 2015 Hovig already tried to get the ticket to eurovision but missed it.
Now in an internal selection the national broadcaster selected him. Hovig was the first announced artist in the 2017 season.
He will perform a song of the former eurovision winner composer Thomas Gyson. So we can be excited what the result of Cyprus will be.
The land of fire is also a successful land of songs at the eurovision. And also this year the country is sending a experienced team to the contest.
Diana Hajiyeva won't be for the first time at eurovision. She was already last year at the contest, as background singer of "Miracle". In 2011 she participated at the national final and lost against the later winners.
This year she will work together with Elnur, who already participated two times for Azerbaijan at the contest, in 2008 and 2015 making good results. Maybe this wil lbe a good chance for her.
DEMY is the greek artist this year. Greece had a bad moment last year, making it NOT to the final for the first time, since there is the semi final methodology. Maybe the national broadcaster took some lessons learned this year to make a better selection.
Demy is a talented singer who is NOT comiing from one of the international successful formats like X Factor, Idols or The Voice. But she already successful in her home country and had a first number one album.
This in combination with the experienced and very successful song singer Dimitris Kontopoulos could be the result of the lessons learned of last year.
We will see what the song will be and if Greece will do better this year.
Brendan Murray is maybe the singer with the biggest fan base so far. As member of the boy band HomeTown he is used to sing in front of huge audiences and had already a number one hit.
He is the the younger and hipper version of the participant of last year, who was an older former boy band singer.
Also for Brendan the song is still not known, but so far we know, the fans will support him.
6. F.Y.R. Macedonia
Jana Burceska is an other former casting show participants. But no from The Voice or X Factor like the most of the others. She is ex participant of the only macedonian edition of idol, where she made the 5. place.
We still don't know which genre the song will be. But we already know that the singer will be talented and will try to get a ticket to the final again.
In the next days Switzerland and Germany will select their entrees and Eurovision on Top will give you the updates and news you need to know.

Starting the new year a lot of people are re-starting after all the holidays into normal life, others are just celebration christmas. Also the Eurovision preparations are running an in this season a lot of songs a and artists will be selected in february and march.
Anyhow - enough time to go through the already known artists.New week - new update about the Eurovision 2017 and the next three artist we want to introduce to you.
Eurovision turned for a lot of artists and countries into the platform for young and very talented artists. All over the world the talent shows like Idol, The Voice, Raising Star, X Factor etc. bring up every year lots of talented singers, which are voted by the people at home.
But the biggest challenge for this winners is to keep in mind and to really start up a musical career which least longer than some weeks. Thats the reason why more and more this artists decide to go to Eurovision and use this international event to promote themselfes. And in a lot of cases it really helps them.
The 3 artists we want to introduce to you this week are a good example for this talented artists.
1. Austria - goes back to smart and talented
2011 was the year when Nathan Trent was at the austrian version of X factor with a band and made a 11th place. He worked on his muscial career in Vienna and was also one of the favorites for the german pre selection of this year.
In 2016 he released his first single called "Like it is" - which maybe gives you an idea about him, his talent and his voice:
2. O'G3NE - Junior Eurovision, The Voice and now Eurovision?
It remebers a bit the band the corrs, sisters making music together. The three sisters Shelly, Lisa and Amy are the band O'G3NE.
The three girls already participated at the Junior Eurovision in 2007.
7 years later they won the dutch The Voice as the sister girl band O'G3NE. In the blind auditions they have been to former dutch participants of the last years. Trijntje (2015) and Ilse DeLange (2014 - The Common Linnets).
And the two ladies are a good example of how the dutch participation have been in the last years, being in 2014 very close to the victory and 2015 stucking the semi final. Any how the girls did not choose any of the two ladies as coach. And at the end they won anyhow.
And in 2016 they have been internally selected as the representative for The Netherlands in Kiev.
3. Belgium - Blanche, will she follow on the road of success of the last years?
An other Voice of Europe and talented young girl. She participated in 2016 at the belgian version of the Voice and made it to the semi final.
Her name is Ellie Dellvaux and maybe be she will be one of the youngest artist if this year with 17 years in may.
Keep tuned and updated about all important news related to Eurovision 2017
