Newsletter: New Rules and Revamps…

Newsletter: New Rules and Revamps…

Also in this week’s newsletter, past Eurovision winners prepare for a special concert in Tel Aviv, Switzerland continue to rise up the bookmakers’ rankings and we round up the best ESC Insight articles from the past month.

You can read the newsletter in full here, or subscribe for a regular dose of Eurovision insight and analysis delivered direct to your email inbox.

Revamp Roundup – Perfecting The Entries For Tel Aviv

With National Selection Season now officially wrapped up, the 41 contenders in place to battle for this year’s Eurovision trophy are all in the public domain. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the artists are quite finished tinkering with them. Several entries have been subtly re-worked or entirely re-recorded in hopes of bolstering their chances in Tel Aviv. Here are some of the most recent revamps to be released.

Like It‘, by Zena (Belarus)

The studio version of this year’s Belarusian entry is considerably more polished than the live performance, revealing a surprisingly strong, modern pop song that pundits may just be underestimating. Whatever happens in Tel Aviv, this is one of the most assured entries Belarus has put together since joining the contest.

That Night‘, by Carousel (Latvia)

Latvia’s soulful country entry has received a very subtle re-recording since winning Supernova 2019, giving it a richer and more polished musical backing. The song remains un-fancied by bookmakers, but perhaps its low-key charms will prove more attractive to voters on the night…

Keep On Going‘, by Oto Nemsadze (Georgia)

One of the last songs to be selected this year, Georgia’s entry from Oto Nemsadze received a belated studio release last week. Despite the new English title, the song remains in the Georgian language. It’s still a rank outsider to qualify, but stranger things have happened…

 ‘Kruna‘, by Nevena Božović (Serbia)

The addition of some classic Balkan strings gives Serbia’s 2019 entry a more traditional feel. They tend to do well with this kind of thing, so don’t be surprised to see Kruna in the mix on finals night.

Sebi‘, by Zala Kralj & Gašper Šantl (Slovenia)

The ‘Dare to Dream’ mix of Slovenia’s melancholy ballad updates the backing track and brings the runtime down to a Eurovision-friendly three minutes. Fortunately, none of the moody, lovelorn atmosphere has been lost in translation.
