On March 31 the BBC filmed Eurovision’s Greatest Hits — its 60th anniversary birthday bash — at London’s Apollo Theatre. And tonight a lot of y’all across Europe will finally have the chance to see what went down. The team from wiwibloggs was there to celebrate the diamond jubilee, and afterwards wiwiblogger William ran at Eurovision 2012 (and 2013 and 2014) singer Valentina Monetta like a horse to water. “Well, I live in London now,” Valentina said. “It was very easy for me to attend this party, and why not enjoy this with you and every other Eurovision fan? It’s an amazing celebration!”
What were her emotions seeing all those stars past and present take the stage? “It was amazing and also very interesting to learn a little bit about the history of Eurovision,” she replied. She definitely had her favourites: “Oh my God, I just love Conchita so much! And it was a pleasure to see Loreen again as well. But every artist was amazing, and for me, this is a celebration of music, and music is a big thing to me, and to see all those artists was very exciting and impressing.”
But what is next for Valentina? “Oh it’s difficult to say,” she said laughing. “Eurovision was such a big part of me, and I will never, never, never forget this experience. But….maybe, you will see me again!”
Valentina’s team also confirmed to wiwibloggs that it has finally and definitely been confirmed she will announce the votes for San Marino at Eurovision 2015. Previous reports were speculative — and Valentina even said she hadn’t been approached. But now it’s all good.
