This year the season seemed to take a lot of time to start. But now, end of January the machines for the selection of songs started their engines and we are getting more and more representatives and songs.
This week we can present you more artist and more songs.
1. UK - when a danish winner works with a british talent
Less people spoke after the UK slection about the fact that since a long time UK is sending a former eurovision winner to the contest. Emmelie the Forrest is one of the song writers of the british entree this year.
The singer is Lucie Jones an other former X factor singer in the eurovision contest. And as a welsh young lady maybe she can show to the world the power of this UK part, like the men did during the european soccer championship last summer.
Her song could be a kind of statement of the eurovision community about the UK entries of the last years. Maybe that was also the sign the executive supervisor of the EBU Ole Sand wanted to send to the audience, being part of the same on during the show.
2. Finland - sends a powerful dark balade
Norma John is the finish duo who will perform the finish song of 2017 - the start of the song rememebers a bit Anouk's song in 2013. The balade is dark and very lightful, powerful at the same time.
3. Georgia - the land with the biggest surprises in the last years
Georgia had in the last years mybe the most diverse kind of performances. Is it a kind of brave competition spirit or maybe more representing the musical taste of this country?
"Keep the faith" - is the title of the song this year. Maybe a statement that this country keep's the faith to win some day this contest.
This year it is Tako Gachechiladze who will will powerful fight to make this happen.
4. Belarus - Folk for europe
Belarus in the last years ended the scandals after national selections. This year they send a fresh, national, folk song.
NAVI is the name of the band and it could work very well in the neighbour country Ukraine with that tipical folk song.
This are so far all new songs of the last days and weeks.
In the next week we will present "the artists without a song" - all representatives we missed to present to you, which till now are waiting for their songs to be announced.

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
