The organisers of the London Eurovision Party 2015 are dropping the names of performing acts thick and fast — so thick and fast that we’ve been unable to keep up! Among the recently confirmed acts are Moldova’s Eduard Romanyuta and Greece’s Maria Elena Kyriakou. They’ll join the UK’s Electro Velvet and some very special special guests including Kitty Brucknell.
The event takes place on April 26 at Café de Paris. Tickets and more information available here.
Why get excited?
“When you have ‘One Last Breath’ to take, then you better make sure that whatever you say ‘or sing’ is poetic, beautiful and worthy of our attention,” the organisers write. And guess what? Maria-Elena delivers! “There is certainly no ‘Greek Tragedy’ here as the stunning Maria-Elena will grace us with her timeless style, elegance and class on the stage at the Café de Paris. You will hang on her every word as she sings with her ‘One Last Breath'”. Oh yes we most certainly will….
Among this year’s special guests are X Factor veteran and Moldova national selection veteran Kitty Brucknell. She’s left organisers purring: “The future of Eurovision could have the X-Factor and this ‘Cat Woman’ has been singing the praises of the contest from Moldova to Switzerland and now back home to the UK. Yes the feline Eurovision hopeful Kitty Brucknell will bring her ‘Remix’ to the London Eurovision Party. Expect the unexpected from Kitty and that is why we just had to have her. Mainland Europe’s loss is our gain and we have a ‘Yearning’ to meow.”
