Six of this year’s Eurovision female singers have joined forces to create a new super group. The idea came from Armenian Tamar Kaprelian who is currently competing in this year’ contest as part of group Genealogy.
This week was another action packed week with many of the countries taking part in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest finalising their acts and songs for Vienna in May. Majority of the songs have now been revealed, but let’s take a look back on the things we learned this week.
1. Australia will make their debut at the 60th Eurovision Song Contest, but it was revealed this week that their first ever representative would be former Australian Idol and R n B singer Guy Sebastian. In a press conference this week he stated that the song choice would be revealed in due course, but it could be a song that featured on his latest album, as it was written within the Eurovision deadline.
2. Controversy was rife when the German selection process crowned Andreas Kummert as the winner of the live final this week, only for the singer to turn down the chance to represent his country at Eurovision with song ‘Heart of Stone’
3. Instead it would be runner up
Greece held their MAD national selection show for Eurovision 2015 tonight and have opted for Maria-Eleni Kyriakou and song ‘One Last Breath’. The song came out on top above four other contestants; C: REAL, Thomai Apergi & Legend, Barrice and Shaya Hansen.
The choice sees yet another ballad added to the list of competitors, and sees the contest run the risk of becoming a bit samey. What do you make of Greece’s decision? Have a listen to the song and let us know your thoughts below.
