As we move into June we are treated to even more hits from former Eurovision stars. As June saw the opening of the FIFA World Cup we have been inundated with World Cup songs from the likes of Buranovskiye Babushki (aka the Russian Grannies), Armenian singer Iveta Mukuchyan and Malta’s Ira Losco teaming up with Jason Derulo. As well as that we have non-sporting new music from Belorussian 2018 representative Alekseev, Dutch girl band OG3NE and Eurovision 1988 winner and all round legend Celine Dion. Read on to find out what we made of each song!
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!
Armenia’s 2016 Eurovision singer and Depi Evratesil mentor Iveta Mukuchyan has returned to music with her new single ‘Keep On Lying’. The track has got a new video which was unveiled earlier this week.
A few weeks ago we reported that Armenia are going all out to find their Eurovision entry for 2017 with an all star judging panel including previous Eurovision singers Iveta Mukuchyan and AramMP3. This contest entitled Depi Evratesil (Towards Eurovision) was launched at the weekend and marked the first of this year’s Eurovision national selection shows to get under way.
Fans of Armenian singer Iveta Mukuchyan will be very happy today as the singer has not only released a new track but has also unveiled the accompanying video. The singer came to our attention earlier this year when she represented her nation at the Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm, finishing in an impressive seventh place with her track ‘LoveWave’.
It’s three months on from the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest, and we thought it was the perfect time to update you on what the class of 2016 have been up to since competing in Stockholm in May. Many artists use the opportunity of performing at Eurovision to launch a career, engage with new audiences and avail of all opportunities afforded to them. 2016’s representatives are no different with some of the acts having already released follow up singles to their Eurovision songs. Read on to find out who has released what and listen to their new songs!
Armenian broadcaster AMPTV announced today its plans for their Eurovision selection procedure for 2017. Instead of internal selection, which has been the case for their past four attempts, a national contest titled ‘Depi Evratesil’ will determine which singer will perform for the nation in Ukraine in 2017.
