The official program of events for Eurovision 2015 was released earlier this week and will see the area around host venue Wiener Stadhalle transformed into the Eurovision Village from 17th May. The village will be a special area where fans can interact with other fans visiting from all over the world, can watch the live shows streamed in large public spaces on giant screens and participate in Eurovision events from quizzes, performances and even a Conchita Wurst look-a-like competition.
Today the first pictures of the stage for the Eurovision Song Contest were revealed. The host venue will be Vienna’s Wiener Stadthalle and earlier this week they relinquished all control to the Eurovision Song Contest for the next month. Eurovision organisers got stuck right in, and began unloading the first of 300 trucks with all the equipment needed to set up the stage for the week long competition which will kick off with Semi Final 1 on 19th May and will culminate with the Final on Saturday 23rd May.
Lithuania have unveiled the official video to accompany their song for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. Duo Vaidas Baumila and Monika Linkyte were chosen as the Lithuanian entry in February and their song ‘This Time’ will compete in the second semi final on May 21st in Vienna. In the meantime you can enjoy their official video and let us know your thoughts.
Aminata seems to be Latvia’s answer to hugely popular dance acts LaRoux and Kiesza. And let’s face it there are worse acts you could try to emulate given that both of them have had great success in the European charts as of late. ‘Love Injected’ utilises Aminata’s hauntingly powerful vocal very well, especially with the perfectly timed pause just before she launches into the chorus. The vocal is complimented by electro-synth dubsteppy sounds that work brilliantly well and really sets the song apart from any of the others in the field for having a unique sound.
