Almost end of January 2018 and actually the engine for the eurovision 2018 is slowly starting. Some more artists and songs will be known by the end of the month.
But actually we already know 8 out of the 43 participants and we still just have 1 song.
Check out who the participants are and listen to the first song of the season 2018 „Mall“, what is not the english word.
Like all years Albania was once again the country with the first national final on the christmas days. Eugen Bushpepa won the national song contest and will try to get a ticket to the final with the song „Mall“. Till now it is unknown if Albania will sing in english and translate the song or once again sing in their own language.
He is beautiful and talented. That could be a description for the Austrian representative of this year. César Sampson is model, singer and song writer. Actually it’s not his first time at eurovision. He already participated two years in a row as background singer for Bulgaria. In 2016 he was seen on stage at the end of the performance. Last year Kristian was alone on stage but not in the chorus performance.
Also not new on the eurovision stage is Jessica Mauboy. You even could say that the first ever Australian representative is coming back to the contest. Jessica was the first officially artist singing for Australia as the interval act in Copenhagen, the year before they participated for the first year ever in Austria. Jessica flashed the audience in 2013 and a well deserved come back to eurovision.
Aisel Mammadova is the name of the artist coming from Baku of this year. She participated at a lot of song festivals in the past, so it will be no Rookie on stage. Azerbaijan in the last years missed to continue the big success story they had since the start at eurovision and the victory 2011. If Aisel will be the one to bring it back will be seen in Lisbon.
She works at Ikea, already has a lot of experience performing and writing songs. Now she is working on her solo career and maybe eurovision is a good choice to do so. In May she will fight for one more success story for Belgium at the recent participations. It will be hard to make a better place than last year, but for sure it is not impossible. The Belgium broadcasters for sure think that is the best choice for Lisbon.
In 2016 the most googled person in Finland was: Saara Alto. She is one more former The Voice participant, she made it to the second place in 2012. And she is participated at the X Factor UK in 2016, a show every 4th Finn watched. And now she is the internal selection of Finland and sure that more than every 4th Finn will watch the semi final to see, if they return to the grand final.
iriao is the internal selection of the Georgian Broadcaster. A jazz band, a fact which made Salvador Sobran happy, his sister said a Portuguese press conference. The group will sing in Georgian language. And Georgia always is good for different performances, we are looking forward to see what will happen in Lisbon.
2014 The Netherlands were so close to win and had the most successful song after the contest. It felt like a half victory and the half of the participants is returning to the contest. Waylon is the internal choice and we will see, if he can meet the high expectation everyone will have on him.
