It would seem that the collective wisdom has decided that Mika Newton has placed herself in a bit of a musical rut. Most of her material, including her Eurovision 2011 entry “Angel” and her last single “Magnets”, has been deemed to be dull and a little boring, although personally I quite liked them both. But […]
Marco Mengoni has been very busy since finishing in a respectable 7th place at Eurovision. Since May, he has embarked on a nationwide tour and released his latest single “Non Passerai”. Marco premiered the music video for his new single today, and although we don’t see his face on the video until the end, we […]
ByeAlex left Malmö with a top 10 finish, and released his latest single “Messzirol” last month on July 23rd. His Eurovision entry “Kedvesem” was memorable for being very chilled out, and anyone who expected his new single to be of a similar nature couldn’t have been more wrong!

Eldar Qasimov has evolved. Yes, he won Eurovision 2011 with Nigar Jamal, and brought the contest to Baku. But he isn’t resting on his laurels. Last year he teamed up with Aligee and dropped a fabulous summer dance anthem, “I’m Free”. When I caught up with him in Malmö, he brought his fun side to […]
What’s another year? Or 26? For that’s the length of time Johnny Logan has had to wait for his first post Eurovision hit in Ireland. The drought finally ended at midday on Friday last, 16th August, when it was revealed that Johnny’s latest release “Prayin” had entered the charts at number 3, just behind Ellie […]
Back at Eurovision 2011 Aurela Gaçe and Emmy were two very different artists. One was a rock chick with a pair of lungs which even Florence Welch would be jealous of, the other a cheeky bubble gum pop princess. Unfortunately Europe liked neither of them, as they both failed to qualify from the first semi […]
