Why is it that as pop and rock singers grow old, many of them turn to Jazz and Swing music? I don’t know, but I know that most of them should have stayed away as they can’t handle it. I therefore hesitated buying sir Cliff`s new album, where he recorded a handful of tunes from before his own career started in 1958, but I must admit, he does it well.
Didrik set many hearts a flutter around the continent when he performed this year's hotly tipped Norwegian entry, My Heart Is Yours. Since then, he has kept a relatively low media profile during the recording of this, his debut album Guilty Pleasures.
At the tender age of seventeen, Safura impressed the majority of viewers with her stunning voice and spectacular, goose bump-inducing performance at the final of this year's Eurovision Song Contest. Azerbaijan had clearly gained an appetite for success following last year's triumphant 3rd place.
Alexander delivers the difficult second album, and seemingly, the odds are stacked against him. How do you top Fairytales? He has been quoted in the Norwegian press recently as saying he couldn't care less what the critics say or how they rate his album.
It is ten years ago Denmark won the 2000 Eurovision Song Contest. The Olsen Brothers are celebrating that with a brand new album with Eurovision cover versions. On some songs they are true to the original while they on others comes up with a brand new arrangement. It works very well and we are asking for a volume 2.
Who can forget Tom Dice as he stood up there on the stage and sang his heart out for Belgium in this year's Eurovision Song Contest? His entry Me And My Guitar won the heart of many Europeans and this album from him might just do the same.
Maria caused a major stir when she was shockingly and unjustly voted off the Idol show back in 2004. Such was her talent that she nevertheless managed to make a name for herself, achieved a good result at the Eurovision Song Contest and is now out with an excellent third album.
Noone can accuse Malcolm Lincoln of taking the easy road when it comes to musical style. Siren was without doubt one of the most original entries participating in this years contest. The fact that Siren wasn't your immediate bubble gum pop didn't exactly make the entry a fan favourite.
