Eurovision is not just a thing of new artists. Every year there are several who want to repeat the experience already lived in previous years. In the race for Tel Aviv there is no exception. Despite the rumors that have circulated about artists who have intended to return but have withdrawn their applications, especially in Romania, many are betting heavily on their returns. These are some of them:
Sandra Nurmsalu will be competing in the first semifinal of Eesti Laul, next January 31st with the song "Soovide puu". Sandra represented her country with Urban Symphony in 2009 and finished 6th in the grand final.
Friðrik Ómar (2008 ), is back with "Hvað ef ég get ekki elskað?" and Hera Bjork is back again with "Eitt andartak". They will be performing in the 2nd and 1st semifinal of Söngvakeppnin, respectively. Hera ended up finishing 19th with 41 points in 2010 and Fridrik with Eurobandið ended 14th in the final with "This is my Life". Fridrik once again participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 2009 as a backing-vocalist in the Icelandic entry performed by Yohanna.
Mørland with "En livredd mann" is trying to comeback to Eurovision after A Monster like me in 2015 with which he placed 8th.
Anna Bergendahl will sing "Ashes to Ashes" in the first semifinal of Melodifestivalen 2019. Anna had a huge success in Sweden with her ESC entry from 2010 despite she was unable to qualify for the final. Arvingarna will also be back with "I Do" (semifinal 4) trying to repeat the success of Eloise in 1993, 7th place. Martin Stenmarck will sing "Låt skiten brinna" in the third semifinal of the swedish contest. He represented Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest 2005 with "Las Vegas", finishing 19th. The competition will be held between 2 February 2019 and 9 March 2019.
Il Volo finished third in 2015 but are now back with "Musica che resta". The final of San Remo Festival will be on the 9th of February.
The first returning name confirmed to ESC is Serhat. Celebrating its tenth year in the Eurovision Song Contest, San Marino RTV invited Serhat to represent the country again. He participated in 2016 as well, when he represented the small republic with the song 'I Didn't Know'. We will see him again in Tel Aviv!

The new song “COME UNA DANZA” marks the great return of a common story, of a complicity before and behind the scenes, 30 years later "Gente di Mare ".
Together they have already done a piece of the history of Italian music, two great artists with two immense and extraordinary repertoires, two Italian singers who with their songs have been dancing all over the world, but above all two friends: RAF and UMBERTO TOZZI today come back to sing together. Gente di Mare was the Italian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1987, placing 3rd. While not winning the Contest the song achieved considerable popularity, becoming a Top 10 hit in most parts of Continental Europe and Scandinavia in the summer of 1987 (#7 Switzerland, #8 Austria, #6 Sweden) and was included on the compilations of Winners and Classics produced to coincide with the Congratulations special in late 2005.
The new song, premiered on Sunday 21st in prime time at "Che tempo che fa" on Rai 1, anticipates the "Raf Tozzi" box that will be released on November 30th.
Some dates are now known:
And this is the tracklist of “Raf Tozzi”:

No more than 10 issues! Time went by for another Eurovision Live Concert Portugal. Once again, the city of Setúbal has received a new set of Eurovision artists who joined the more than 90 who have done it since the show started.
In an ever-better organization, the concert is more than just a one-night stand. The day before the stars were received in a red carpet and before the concert they were able to take a boat trip on the River Sado.
The portuguese artists were welcomed, especially Anabela and Carlos Costa. The first one that due to its charm won the hearts of the audience as if it were 1993 taking all the true magic of the Festival. The second, he did a Eurovision medley accompanied by several dancers where the high moment was "Fuego"! It showed that the Eurovision show is alive and knocked on the door of a possible participation. Will it be?
Carla Ribeiro, often invited to the concert, made a small tribute to the songs of Albania and remembered Portuguese songs, always with her professionalism. The same as Gerson Santos that brought more recent themes of the Eurovision stand.
All the artists gave their best in this event and their involvement was greatly appreciated by both the organization and the public. The big surprise of the night was Mickey Harte who only with his guitar managed to remake his 2003 song making it current and special. Brilliant the soul of a true musician.
Justs showed his identity and charisma with three themes that did not escape the line of the current "Heartbeat". Poli Genova got a total audience involvement with any of his songs, but the highlight was undoubtedly the song that gave her the best rating at ESC and that everyone knew.
Krista was the revelation of the night! A real hurricane on stage! She cleverly opened with her Finnish version of "Eu quero ser Tua," continued with a ballad dedicated to his father and toasted the whole audience as if he were present. Then came "Marry Me" and she took the public to the maximum! You have to go back to Eurovision Krista!
Lucia Pérez was able to show how the Portuguese Soul is close to the Galician one. She sang in Galician, a language that the Portuguese understand well because it has the same origin, and even before "Que me quiten lo bailao", she made a version of a song sung by Amália Rodrigues.
The best way to end the event was with Madame Monsieur, participants from France this year. The audience received them so well that it was difficult to leave the stage. Mercy was entitled to bis and the requests to take pictures were so many that the organization was forced to remove them from the event. The Portuguese-French community present there gave them many souvenirs from Portugal and as the duo confided to us, maybe they will return to a concert.
Congratulations for this glorious event in which we also take part since the first edition!
