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!

Just hours before winning the french national final, Madame Monsieur top the ITunes chart climbing 49 places to number 1. How many days will they stay there in order to enter the french official chart? The expectation is big and the chances are high,but we have to wait one week to know.
In the ITunes Chart, at 5 a.m. today, other songs from the national final were entering the chart:

Merci or may be Pardon!?
Destination Eurovision was a new show concept of France 2 with a really good show and good songs. In a very exciting voting with 8 international juries, which clearly voted for Lisandro Cuxi and the song Eva, the voting system gave to the france televote the opportunity to change with the last votes the whole result.
Madame Monsieur and the song Merci won the national final due to the highest voting from the televote.
The interesting question if it really will help France for the final result in Lisbon to ignore the taste and votes of the international jury and and the end to send what they nationally liked more.
Merci ou Pardon, that may be what the france national broadcaster will think after the grand final in Lisbon.

After some soundtracks, the singer of Divine in Eurovision found the Mind Gamers which not need to bother with the laws of time and space, or even gravity.
It was in Sydney that the supergroup’s three minds collided. Parisian-by-way-of-Venus Sébastien Tellier was touring the Milky Way when he stopped by to preach to his Alliance Bleue faithful. Among them was Daniel Stricker, who moonlights behind the Midnight Juggernauts’ drumkit, where he has been known to conjure up the ghosts of E.L.O. and Sparks’ greatest incantations. Cosmic hitchhiker John Kirby – whose travel companions have included Blood Orange, Cypress Hill, Solange or Money Mark – on a pit-stop between Los Angeles and Ásgard, mesmerized them with his consciousness-warping keyboard licks.
They merged their powers again during the last Earth Winter at Red Bull Studios Paris, emerging from the week-long communion with “Power of Power”. As much an exhortation for the listener to explore their inner landscapes as a commandment to let loose, the offering is divided into two scriptures: “Come to America” is a teleportation device straight to the open roads of California, palm trees swaying in the ocean breeze, while “Golden Boy” is a kaleidoscopic invitation to a dance ritual, featuring Karl Lagerfeld. While magnanimous, “Power of Power” is but a launching pad for the Mind Gamers’ interstellar voyage. "Power of Power", the EP, is out in vinyl and digital.
