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).
June has been so jam-packed with musical goodness that we have had to split our music round up across two parts. This first part includes new songs from Croatia’s Nina Kraljic, new music from Samra, Aminata, Barei, Ani Lorak and Manel Navarro, as well as three new songs from Armenia’s Iveta Mukuchyan including a duet with fellow Depi Evratesil judge Aram MP3, some rock hits from Cyrpus’ Minus One and Romania’s Voltaj and a new solo song from FreakyFortune’s Nikolas Raptakis. Check out the line up below!
Aminata has been bitten by the Eurovision bug. Not satisfied with competing in Eurovision 2015, giving Latvia one of their best Eurovision results ever with song ‘Love Injected’, the singer returned to Eurovision in 2016 as a song writer, penning the Latvian entry again with song ‘Heartbeat’ sang this time by Justs. In 2017 Aminata has announced that she will enter a song to the Latvian Eurovision selection show Supernova and today has announced plans that she also wishes to submit a song for the Lithuanian selection show Eurovizjios.
Last week Latvian singer and Eurovision 2015 competitor Aminata released her second studio album. The follow up to her debut effort ‘Inner Voice’ is entitled ‘Red Moon’. The album features eight tracks including singles ‘Bridges’, ‘Fighter’ and title track ‘Red Moon’.
The final of Latvia’ Supernova competition was held earlier this evening and saw crowned Justs as the winner. The ‘Heartbeat’ singer will represent Latvia in the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest in May.
Sunday night saw the semi final of Latvia’s Supernova Selection Show, which will decide who will represent the nation at Eurovision in 2016. Eight acts battled it out, but only four of the songs could advance to this weekend’s final on Sunday. Read on to find out who the final four are!
Latvia staged their second heat of Supernova on Sunday night and four more acts advanced to the semi final stage. Read on to see the results and if your favourite made it through…
Latvia’s Supernova launched tonight with ten acts performing in the first of its live shows. Only four of the competing entries made it through to the semi final which will take place in a fortnight’s time. Read on to find out who progressed and who were eliminated.
Latvia have competed 16 times at Eurovision since their 2000 debut. It was two years later in 2002 that Latvia won the Contest for the first time with Marie N’s ‘I Wanna’. Since the introduction of the semi-finals in 2004, Latvia qualified for the final between 2005 and 2008, however from 2009 and 2014, Latvia failed to qualify to the final for six consecutive years. This bad streak was shirked in 2015 by Aminata’s ‘Love Injected’ which finished in sixth place.
In this new feature we catch up with the acts from Eurovision 2015 and find out what they’ve been up to in the five months since Eurovision 2015 was staged in Vienna.
