The reigning Eurovision champion, Netta is set to embark on a whistle stop tour of Europe next month. The ‘Toy’ singer posted dates of the tour on Twitter earlier this afternoon.
At the weekend we dished out awards in 19 categories (and it didn’t take a week) at the Eurovision NI (knee?) Awards 2018. Read on to see our photo gallery with some of the highlights from the night! Can’t wait to do it all again next year.
Over the next nine weeks we will be looking closely at some of the songs released in 2016 by former Eurovision contestants. We will be asking you to vote for your favourite from the lists before compiling a final Top 30 just before the end of the year.
Anybody who knows Marty knows how much he loves zoos. For those of you who don’t know Marty, he frigging LOVES ZOOS. Marty loves Zoos so much that he went interrailing when we were at university and was looking forward to it as a zoo crawl around Europe. To his disappointment, he didn’t get to visit one single zoo when he was there. To make up for this we decided that our first full day in Berlin would be spent at one of the most famous and highly recommended zoos (and Aquariums) in the world. Read on to find out how we got on.
At around 5pm we arrived in Berlin Schoenefeld Airport airport and quickly made our way to the train station to get us into Berlin city itself. After some faffing about trying to understand both the German language, the complex but highly efficient German transport system, train platforms and ticket validation, we were on our way to Alexanderplatz via Berlin Hauptbahnhof.
Today is a very exciting day as we begin our Eurovision holiday! This morning we have set out from Belfast to go down to Dublin to get a flight to Berlin. In Berlin we will stay in an amazing apartment and will take in the sites of the German city for five days before catching another flight to Vienna on Wednesday.
