Franka shares love and happiness in her summer hit “Ljubav, ništa više”

Franka, who represented Croatia at 2018 Eurovision, has dropped a new song today titled “Ljubav, ništa više”. It is a happy, love song with lots of summer vibes and dance rhythms.

Last year in Lisbon, Franka was hoping to reach the grand final with the song Crazy. Unfortunately it didn’t happen, as she finished 17th in her semi-final. Since she took part in the Eurovision Song Contest last year, Franka has released three singles: Kao ti i ja (As you and me),Ti mi nosiš sreću (You Bring Me Luck) and Tajno (Secretly). She also released the album Stobom (With You) in December 2018.

Ljubav, ništa više, which translates to Love and nothing else, is a modern dance pop song, where love, music and dance lead to happiness. Franka herself fell in love with her new song from the very first time, she heard it, as it made her happy. She also revealed that the song contains four favorite things in her life: summer, love, dance and rhythm.

The video for Ljubav, ništa više was filmed in the Croatian coast town Labin, which also is Franka’s hometown. By shooting the video on this location, Franka wanted to thank for all the support she has received from her hometown throughout the years.

Ljubav, ništa više is written by Branimir Mihaljević, and composed by Nenad Ninčević. Mihaljević also penned Franka’s Eurovision entry Crazy and another previous Croatian entry as well: Lako je sve from 2010 performed by Feminnem. Ninčević co-wrote and composed the Croatian entry Kada zaspu anđeli back in 2000.

André Rieu joins forces with Maastricht for Eurovision bid

André Rieu

Maastricht gets help from world famous violinists and conductor André Rieu. It’s his home town, and he is helping them achieve the goal: to host the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest. A video of him conducting “Te Deum” with his Johann Strauss Orchestra brings back hope for a fantastic opening of the show.

Many fans are eagerly waiting to the orchestra back at the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest. While that might not happen for the actual participating entries, one can imagine an opening sequence with André Rieu, a big orchestra and Te Deum (the well known Eurovision Song Contest hymn). In a video, he uploaded to his Facebook page, he does just that – and ends with saying: “See you all in Maastricht, my home town”.

The video closes off with the following text: Maastricht: Candidate city for the Eurovision Song Contest 2020.

Maastricht is one of nine cities interested in hosting the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest, so it won’t be easy for the city to win it, but if they play their cards right, 66 year old André Rieu can raise their chances. It’s expected that the winner, the host city of next year’s Eurovision Song Contest, will be announced in August.

This isn’t the first time André Rieu shows interest in the Eurovision Song Contest. His three latest tweets are all about Eurovision. On the 19th of May, he tweets a picture from on board an airplane with the text “Huge Congratulations to Duncan Laurence on winning the Eurovision Song Contest. My Johann Strauss Orchestra and I are so proud of you. Well done!

The day after he congratulated Duncan, he also tweeted a little video and the message “Let’s bring Eurovision Song Contest to Maastrict!

Poll – Eurovision 2010s: The favourite Azerbaijani entry this decade is…

Poll – Eurovision 2010s: The favourite Azerbaijani entry this decade is…

Farid Mammadov (Azerbaijan 2013)

With one victory and four more songs in top 10 this decade, Azerbaijan is a country that knows how to attract voters. But which of their ten entries this past decade is actually their best one?

EuroVisionary look back at the previous Eurovision decade, and our average relation position placed Azerbaijan as sixth best this decade. It was a decade where they won once, finished in top 10 five times, but also where they failed to reach the final for the first time. That happened last year with Aisel’s X My Heart.

We have already looked at top 5 which consisted of 1. Sweden, 2. Russia, 3. Australia, 4. Italy and 5. Ukraine.

Charlotte, Denmark

2013: Farid Mammadov – Hold Me

A strong song which builds up nicely, is extremely powerful in the middle just to take us down again at the end. The performance is great – it’s not too much as often seen, but instead done elegantly. In the beginning, when he is half sitting, half standing, he looks straight into the camera and sends a half shy smile, and a blink, I am waiting though for him to say How You Doin’. At that moment, he really reminds of Joey from “Friends”.

Wouter, The Netherlands

2019: Chingiz – Truth

When I think of Azerbaijan at Eurovision, mostly Swedish conveyer belt Euro-pop comes to mind. Always performed and produced to perfection, but hardly ever anything that leaves a permanent impression. Truth is different. It’s dance, with so much more than just one boring beat. It has that vibe!

Ashleigh, England

2013: Farid Mammadov – Hold Me

Azarbaijan have never gotten it far wrong at Eurovision, but my favourite song from them this decade is Hold Me which was performed in Malmö in 2013. The song is catchy and the staging was interesting and different. I liked how Farid was able to keep in perfect time with the dancer beneath him in the Perspex box – it kept my attention throughout the performance.

William, Northern Ireland

2012: Sabina Babayeva – When The Music Dies

Sometimes I just want an emotional ballad sung by a talented female singer, that can do it justice, Sabina is the best example of that this decade for me. This was a beautiful pop ballad with some Azeri traditional instrumentation and vocals. The performance was simple but effective with flames and swirling colours projected on her white gown as she stood on a dark stage joined by four backing vocalists.

Eric Saade sings about tough love on brand new track “Skit För Varandra”

Eric Saade sings about tough love on brand new track “Skit För Varandra”

Eric Saade

Swedish pop singer Eric Saade, who sang about becoming popular at 2011 Eurovision Song Contest, released yesterday a brand new single “Skit För Varandra”. It is a modern pop song about difficult relationships and the time after.

Eric Saade made a breakthrough back in 2010 when he came 3rd in Melodifestivalen with the song Manboy. The year after he won the Swedish selection. At the Eurovision grand final in Düsseldorf, he reached a respectful 3rd place with the powerful pop track Popular. Since Eurovision he released five albums, and a bunch of singles.

Eric’s new song Skit För Varandra, which translates to Bad For Each Other in English, is a personal song about difficult relationships and the time after breakup. In a press release, Eric explains that he, in retrospect, has realised, that in the time after his previous breakup, he continued to hold on to some other relationships, which weren’t good for him. As he pointed out himself, it can be difficult to follow the logic path when desire is too strong. However, based on his previous experiences, Eric has finally recognized that he should not be searching for something perfect, because perfect doesn’t exist.

Furthermore, Eric has come to a point in his life where he strictly is focusing on music. In an interview to Swedish newspaper Expressen, he pointed out that he has become wiser and more experienced, and that the music is more important than his image and stage shows.

As mentioned above, Eric’s new song is in Swedish as he believes that the lyrics written in Swedish are more personal. He co-wrote and produced Skit För Varandra together with Jimmy Jansson and Fredrik Sonefors. Eric is also planing to release his first album in Swedish in the end of Autumn this year.

Below you can watch the lyric video for Eric’s latest release:

Sennek deals with her own breakup on new single “Endlessly”

Sennek deals with her own breakup on new single “Endlessly”

Sennek - Endlessly (Cover photo)

Sennek, who represented Belgium at 2018 Eurovision Song Contest, has recently released a new single titled “Endlessly”. Today she also launched the lyric video for the song.

29 year old Belgian pop artist, Sennek, was predicted a great result last year in Lisbon with her Bond inspired entry A Matter Of Time. Unfortunately it didn’t happen. Sennek failed to qualify for the grand final as she finished 12th in her semi-final.

Last week she dropped her first single since the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest. For Endlessly, Sennek worked with composer Maxime Tribeche, who also co-wrote A Matter Of Time. Together they created another atmospheric and well produced pop song with emotional strings and soaring vocals. Sennek wrote Endlessly about the break up she went through after Eurovision.

A song that describes the feeling of being happy and sad at the same time. Running away because you can’t deal with your breakup. Escaping in partying, dancing, drinking and running through the streets without destination … This is not a cliché break up song. It is a song that wants to make you dance. Make you forget about life for 3:30 seconds and lose yourself into the music.

Sennek on Instagram

You can say that the vibe is more contemporary on Endlessly compared to Sennek’s Eurovision entry. It is a sophisticated, well written track with some remarkable hooks.

Below you can watch the lyric video for Sennek’s new song:

Sennek – Endlessly (Lyrics)

If I lose my mind, I lose it into the night
Recklessly, helplessly
Turn off all the light, help the darkness make it right
Recklessly, helplessly
Cause it’s getting real now, let go of the real now
You always have a friend in me, endlessly
So turn off all the light, help the darkness make it right
Recklessly

Time after time after time I get higher and higher
Trying to escape the screaming louder and louder
If diamonds are forever and ever
I guess we were nothing but embers

And I, I just watch the fade away
The I, then I’ll be on my way

If I lose my mind, I lose it into the night
Recklessly, helplessly
Turn off all the light, help the darkness make it right
Recklessly, helplessly
Cause it’s getting real now, let go of the real now
You always have a friend in me, endlessly
So turn off all the light, help the darkness make it right
Recklessly

Day after day after day I fall deeper and deeper
As I stumble on my desire, ire
There’s no such thing as forever and ever
To watch the flame in the embers

And I just watch them fade away
Then I, then I’ll be on my way

If I lose my mind, I lose it into the night
Recklessly, helplessly
Turn off all the light, help the darkness make it right
Recklessly, helplessly

Cause it’s getting real now, let go of the real now
You’ll always have a friend in me, endlessly
So turn off all the light, help the darkness make it right, recklessly
Endlessly

Sergey Lazarev performs Russian version of Scream

Sergey Lazarev performs Russian version of Scream

Sergey Lazarev (Russia 2019)

In Tel Aviv, he finished third with the English version of “Scream”. Sergey Lazrev has added a Russian edition of his 2019 Eurovision entry to his repetoire.

It’s clear that Sergey Lazarev is much more at home when singing in Russian than in English. In the video below, you can see that it’s like he adds much more emotions to the song when he performs it in Russian. He did get off with a shaky start though where the vocals weren’t spot on as we usually see from him. As soon as he takes out his ear plugs, it sounds a lot better.

Sergey Lazarev at the Eurovision Song Contest

As soon as it was confirmed that that Sergey would represent Russia for a second time, expectations were high and bookmakers placed the Russian super star as top favourite to win. He kept that position until the Netherlands released their entry. When Scream finally were released too, it wasn’t enough to take back the role as bookmaker favourite.

In Tel Aviv for the 2019 contest, Sergey Lazarev achieved a third position… just like he did at his first Eurovision participation back in 2016. His previous Eurovision entry You Are The Only One is quite different from Scream, which shows how versatile, Sergey is.
