Saara Aalto showcased her new album ‘Wild Wild Wonderland’ in Belfast’s Oh Yeah Centre tonight in an intimate show jam packed with hits.
I find it really difficult to say something constructive about Germany’s entry for 2017. Levina, who judging by her performances at Unser Song has a quality voice, but she has limited star quality, artistic vision or appeal for a wider audience.
Singer Saara Aalto, who finished second in the Finnish Eurovision selection show UMK last year, has progressed to the Boot Camp stage of X-Factor UK following her performance of Sia’s ‘Chandelier’ in Sunday night’s show.
Croatian representative Nina Kraljic has unveiled her song for Eurovision 2016, earlier today. The song is called ‘Lighthouse’ and you can listen to it below!
It has been widely reported for weeks now in the Croatian media that Croatia would likely most likely select Nina Kraljić as their entry for 2016. It came as no surprise then that Kraljić, winner of Season One of the Croatian version of The Voice (Najljepši glas Hrvatske), was announced earlier today as the Croatian pick.
Croatia have had mixed fortunes at Eurovision. In the 90s and early 00s they racked up six top ten finishes with their best result being in 1999 when Doris Dragović came fourth with song ‘Marija Magdalena’. However in the recent past, since 2010 they have failed to qualify from the semi final every year they competed. Croatia took a break from Eurovision for the last two years but are set to make a return now in 2016.
We fell in love with The Voice of Belgium winner, Loic Nottet when we saw his covers of Sia’s songs ‘Chandelier‘ and ‘Elastic Heart‘ on Youtube. His fun and wacky sense of humour really comes put in these videos that seem to take a leaf of of Lady Gaga’s book. He swings from a chandelier, carries out ridiculous dance routines and hits notes that you wouldn’t think he’d be capable of.

It would seem that the Belgian singer Loic Nottet is an avid Sia fan. Last week we shared with you his rendition of the Australian singers hit song “Chandelier” accompanied with a freaky and bizarre video. This week the “Rhythm Inside” singer has covered another of Sia’s songs, choosing this time to take on “Elastic Heart”. Listen to the cover and let us know what you think.
