Eurovision always serves us some unforgettable moments and Eurovision 2017 was as eventful as ever. We relive the most memorable moments from streakers, to epic staging, great interval acts to hilarious comedic segments. Here are our twelve favourite memories from this year’s Contest. Which will be named the Best Moment at the Eurovision NI Awards 2017?
Collaborations come in many forms and Eurovision 2017 saw possibly the most diverse selection in recent years. This year saw a yodeller team up with a rapper, a man duet with himself, the return of a band with an epic saxophonist, a wonderfully harmonised group made up of three sisters and a duo singing in the Belorussian language for the first time in Eurovision history. Check out which of the acts have been nominated in the category of Best Group, Duo or Collaboration at the Eurovision NI Awards 2017.
Imagine if Eurovision was an episode of ‘Dragon’s Den’. I feel like Ilinca and Alex Florea would be one of the risky investments that few of the dragons would invest in and were they to invest they would give hardly any money and ask for a lot of shares in return. You would think that if someone was to say ‘I have this idea for musical fusion. I want to bring the world of yodelling folk music together with rap music’, any one who knows anything about music’s response would be ‘I’m out!’. Moreover, if you were to pin down a country that would propose such a musical fusion you would think it likely to be an Alpine country like Switzerland or Austria, but it is in fact Romania who has brought this proposal forward and strangely the combination works a treat.
Ilinca and Alex Florea will represent Romania at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest where the duo will sing the song ‘Yodel It!’ In Kiev in May. Get to know the pair better with our feature article 10 Things About…Ilinca ft Alex Florea!
