Over the next nine weeks we will be looking closely at some of the songs released in 2017 by former Eurovision contestants. We will be asking you to vote for your favourite from the lists before compiling a final Top 30 just before the end of the year.
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.
Eurovision queen, Loreen is back with a new single. The song dropped today after the singer had teased it on her social media pages earlier in the week. Entitled ‘Body’, the song paves the way for a new album ‘Nude’ due for release on 25 August.
As most of the Eurovision 2017 selection shows draw to a close, some of the Eurovision stars from the past few years have been busy releasing some new material. Check out our New Music Round Up for March 2017! Included in the mix are new songs from Russia’s Sergey Lazarev, Debrah Scarlett from Norway, Iceland’s Greta Salome, Barei from Spain, while Loreen returns to Swedish selection show Melodifestivalen with ‘Statements’!
