Farid Mammadov will be visiting Turkey tomorrow as part of his promotional tour. Having released a Turkish version of his Eurovision Song Contest entry, he is prepared to meet the Turkish fans that are keeping the interest high despite not participating this year.
Last night Serbia chose their song for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö. The winner was selected by public televoting among five finalists from yesterday's semifinal. This year, Moje 3will represent Serbia with the song Ljubav Je Svuda.
Tonight, fifteen acts performed at the semi-final of Beosong. At the end, ten of them were eliminated. The remaining five are going to compete against each other tomorrow about who should fly the Serbian flag in Malmö in May.
Better late than never, Blue, who represented United Kingdom in 2011, released their fourth studio album "Roulette". It does not only open a new chapter in their music career as a band, but also bring back memories from the times before they decided to split up in 2004.
While the Greek broadaster already announced the participants for the national final a few weeks ago, we had to wait until today to listen to the 4 songs. They will fight against each other for the Greek Eurovision ticket on the 18th of February.
Turkish Eurovision fans were readily discussing who is going to represent Turkey in Malmö. Polls are already created in social media to find out which singer has more potential to win. Meanwhile, the Director General at TRT had a shocking message for the media: "We may consider withdrawal from the contest in 2013."
The Norwegians are having a great time hosting this contest. Everything is running smoothly and there's a great buzz around Oslo. There's another thing the Norwegians are doing very well and that's the preparation for their entry.
Georgia had their second round of rehearsals this afternoon and while the phrase 'throwing the kitchen sink at it' has been used for several other countries already it's probably best used for the Georgians. They are over-complicating a song that should stand on its own with a simple presentation.
