The final list of the nominees is expected to be out from May 1, 2015.


 

Athena: Upside down

Posted by Eurovision On Top on February 26, 2015 at 7:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Athena, the first ska act ever to grace the Eurovision stage (in 2004) are back with a new album called "Altüst" (translated as "Upside Down").

 

Athena's fans are used to long breaks between new albums and this time was no exception. "Altüst" came out in November 2014, almost 5 years after their previous full-lenght, "Pis" (May, 2010).

Remaing faithful to their trademark sound, throughout the 12 new offerings it is possible to listen to ska, punk, garage and pop rock in a album that was released by Pasaj Müzik.

 

This new album came out in a time when Athena's frontman, Gökhan Özoğuz, was receiving great exposure as a coach on "O Ses Türkiye" ("The Voice of Turkey") alongside Hadise and Mazhar Alanson & Özkan Uğur from MFO.

 

Like we wrote in the beginning Athena was the first ska act at the Eurovision and so far they remain the most successful one, despite the remarkable achievements of Zdob și Zdub from Moldova in 2005 and Koza Mostra from Greece in 2013.

 

"Kafama Göre" is the first song from Altüst to receive a video. You can watch it below.

Elnur Huseynov, the "Voice of Turkey"

Posted by Eurovision On Top on February 26, 2015 at 7:45 AM Comments comments (0)

Elnur Hüseynov was born in Turkmenistan, represented Azerbeijan in the ESC 2008 and won "The Voice of Turkey" in 2015.

 

Elnur Hüseynov, the first Azeri representative in the ESC, entered the 4th season of "O Ses Türkiye" (Turkish version of "The Voice") winning the whole competition on February 18th, 2015.

No one can say that his victory was a shock since all his performances along the weeks were highly praised both by the juries and the audience.

 

Another curiosity is related to the coaches since 3 out of 4 were former Turkish representatives: Mazhar Alanson &Özkan Uğur (part of MFO, Turkey 1985 & 1988), Gökhan Özoğuz (vocalist of Athena, Turkey 2004) and Hadise (Turkey 2009).

However Elnur's coach was the only one with no Eurovision bond, Ebru Gündeş.

 

We recall you that in space of 7 months Elnur is the second Eurovision Artist that manages to win "The Voice", in July 2014 Rui Drumond (Portugal, 2005) won the Portuguese version of the same show.

 

Below you can watch of one the Elnur Hüseynov's performances at " O Ses Türkiye".

Can Bonomo: "Bulunmam Gerek"

Posted by Eurovision On Top on February 22, 2015 at 5:00 AM Comments comments (0)


Exactly two years after "Aşktan ve Gariplikten" Can Bonomo is back is a new album, "Bulunmam Gerek".

 

As usualy "Aşktan ve Gariplikten" is released by "We Play" and again Can Saban is the producer.

Once more, those who like to label music will face a hard task by listening to Can Bonomo. Judging by the first single, "Tastamam", Can Bonomo maintains his unique pop style which goes beyond any ordinary commercial release.

 

Can Bonomo is a star in Turkey. Will he uphold the international fan base he gained in Baku?

Listen to the first single (soon at our website for voting) and come to your own conclusions.
