This year we have decided to hold the inaugural Eurovision NI Awards. We will celebrate the good, the bad and the ugly at Eurovision 2016 over 16 categories, as well as presenting the Phoenix Award for Outstanding Contributing to Eurovision. We have chosen the nominees for each category (which are listed below) and we are now asking you to vote for your favourites in each category, with the results being announced in four weeks time on Saturday 22 October.
In a surprise result, Georgia’s Nika Kocharov and the Young Georgian Lolitaz qualified from last night’s second semi final with their song ‘Midnight Gold’. The band went through to the Final of Eurovision 2016 ahead of some other strong contenders including Ireland’s Nicky Byrne, Denmark’s Lighthouse X, Agnete from Norway and Ivan from Belarus who fulfilled his dream of performing on stage naked with a wolf (albeit through CGI).
Georgia will be represented by Nika Kocharov and the Young Georgian Lolitaz at Eurovision 2016. They will sing their song ‘Midnight Gold’ and we take a look at it in our review.
Two songs will advance from Group C to the knock out stage of our Eurovision World Cup Contest. Group C consists of Germany, Georgia, Croatia, Norway, Romania and San Marino. Listen to each of the songs in this group and vote for your favourite two in the poll below. Poll closes 4th April when the results will be unveiled.
