While we were busy preparing for the Eurovision NI Awards at the weekend, Ireland’s Ryan O’Shaughnessy dropped his new single ‘Civil War’ on Friday.
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.
Earlier this evening the third annual Eurovision NI Awards took place in Belfast’s American Bar. The acts from Eurovision 2018 battled it out in eighteen categories from Best Male, Best Female and Best Group to Best Song, Best New Song and Best Song From Selection Shows. It wasn’t all good, we also named and shamed the worst from this year’s participants from Worst Song, Worst Dressed Acts and even crowned the Most Cringeworthy Act.
Also returning for 2018 was the award decided by the readers of our blog: The People’s Choice Award. We received hundreds of votes from devoted fans, but only one act could be crowned the people’s champion in 2018.
Finally we honoured a person who has contributed greatly to Eurovision with the Phoenix: Outstanding Contribution to Eurovision Award. This year’s recipient was Conchita Wurst. She will join Linda Martin and the late Sir Terry Wogan in the Eurovision NI Hall of Fame.

Promotion ahead of Eurovision is key. It allows acts to give fans an idea of what they’re all about ahead of their one off performance at the finals. The best way to showcase this is with a video to accompany the Eurovision song. Here are the eight videos that made the most lasting impression on us. Which will be named the Best Video at the Eurovision NI Awards 2017?
