Welcome to the inaugural Wiwi Round Up. A place where wiwibloggers come to dissect and analyse the latest goings on in the Eurovision world. This week William, Angus and Padraig get their claws stuck into the rumoured Melfest class of 2015, rate the new releases from Conchita and Jedward, scrutinise the Irish Eurovision tabloid tales, and pass judgement on the Junior Eurovision 2014 entries.
Y’all can watch our discussion below, or check out the running order and skip to the specific story which grabs your interest.

By “fully or he” I mean “fill in the”…I hate auto-correct
That was awesome, it’s an even better way to fully or he gaps between bits of eurovision news, when there’s a gap. Really liked the idea of casual chat about it.
now that’s eurovision news with attitude! 🙂
How can you join the Wiwi-Round up??
You guys this was fantastic! Nice touch adding the agenda and links to the times – I’ll definitely be tuning in next time. 🙂
Conchita needs to stick with dance music. This charity single is really boring. I know it’s a cover.
@Ray: Just an informed fan. Informed because everybody who cares to check will read this sort of info on Conchita’s facebook page.
Conchita team’s promoting info written below LOL
Sorry but no one cares of Conchita Wurst cover / single or what today it’s a half year to late!
Sorry but no one cares of Conchita Wirst cover / single or what today it’s a half year to late!
“My Lights” it not Conchita’s follow-up single to “Rise”! It’s just for charity. It’s a song interpreted each year by another artist. And it’s quite an honor to get asked to do it for this year. She will present her own new single “Heroes” on November 8th. Conchita herself says about “Heroes” that it’s very unlike “Rise”.
