With Stella Mwangi doing a "Kate Ryan" and failing to qualify for the final in this year's Eurovision Song Contest, things were looking rather bleak for state broadcaster NRK who can normally rely on whopping viewing figures for one of the most popular programmes in Norway.
The Dutch soap opera about Toppers, that represented the Netherlands at the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest, can now add a new chapter to its story as Gordon announced today that he will leave the band. It is far from the first time the band changes constellation, and it probably won't be the last either.
First they were three, then two, then three again in another line-up, and then four and now they will be five – for at least three concerts. Yes, it is the Dutch drama queen band De Toppers we are talking about and an online audition for the fifth person starts tonight.
Despite predictions of a walkover victory in this year's Söngvakeppni Sjónvarpsins, Jóhannashockingly failed to reach the top and gain the right to represent the saga nation for a second time at the Eurovision Song Contest.
After working with Antoine Clamaran and Kate Ryan and entering several European charts, Soraya is back with a new album, a new record company, a new look, a new energy and a new sound. This woman is unstoppable and she never ceases to amaze us.
The first official presentation of the album took place on December 16th at the Kapital Theatre in Madrid and started with a DJ session by Brian Cross. In this album we can find a mixture of pop and dance music with great duets, nice lyrics and commercial rhythms.
