July ushers in a summer full of new hits from your Eurovision faves. This month we take a look at new tracks from Latvia’s Aminata, everyone’s favourite saxy group Sunstroke Project, Polish butter churner/singer CLEO and Eurovision 2018 alums Lea Sirk (Slovenia), AWS (Hungary) and Sevak Khanagyan (Armenia).
In 2018 Moldova will be hoping to improve on their best ever Eurovision result achieved last year with Sunstroke Project’s third place for ‘Hey Mamma!’. This quest will begin with their selection show O Melodie Pentru Europa 2018 and earlier this week Moldovan broadcaster TRM unveiled just what this would entail.
2017 was an epic year at Eurovision and not just for sax, but for music in general. Our next category honours the Best Song at the Eurovision NI Awards 2017. The winner will be announced at our live ceremony in October. Until then vote for your favourite in our poll. The nominees are…
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.
Moldova’s Sunstroke Project return to Eurovision minus the female vocalist that accompanied them in 2010. Back then Epic Sax Guy Sergey Stepanov took the internet by storm when his sax solo skills were turned into virally shared memes and he’s back again with even more sax skills in 2017 with song ‘Hey Mamma!’
Two songs will advance from Group D to the knock out stage of our Eurovision World Cup Contest. Group D consists of Moldova, Poland, France, San Marino, Ireland and Czech Republic. Listen to each of the songs in this group and vote for your favourite two in the poll below. Poll closes 26th March when the results will be unveiled.
