Last month the Maltese broadcaster revealed a list of 30 artists and songs that they had selected for the next round of their national selection for Eurovision 2018. Today, they have gone one step closer and have shortened the list to the 16 songs that will compete at the live MESC 2018 show in Jan/Feb. Read on for the full list of contenders.
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?
The first of September begins a new Eurovision season and we at Eurovision NI want to keep you updated on all the latest goings on. We’ve created a new table for the 2018 Contest that will let you know which countries will participate, information on the selection process, their artists and their songs. This page will be updated on a regular basis, but this is what we know so far!
Eurovision preparation begins months before the Eurovision Final in May. Many countries host their own national selection shows which take place over a number of weeks and usually there are a number of epic tracks that don’t get the chance to progress to the Eurovision finals. We honour those songs that narrowly missed out from the likes of Melfest, UMK, You Decide, Songvakeppnin, Dansk Melodi Grand Prix, A Dal, Festivali i Kenges, Eesti Laul, Supernova and many more with the category Best Song From Selection Shows at the Eurovision NI Awards 2017.
The new music round up for July continues with part two and includes a double feature from Romanian singer Elena Gheorghe and Irish representative from 2017 Brendan Murray. Also among the mix are Barei (Spain, 2016), Ira Losco (Malta, 2016), Firelight (Malta, 2014), Marco Mengoni (Italy, 2013), Joci Papai (Hungary, 2017) and Polina Gagarina (Russia, 2015).
