The London Eurovision Party is the final stop on the road to Stockholm, giving the Eurovision 2016 acts one last chance to steal the spotlight ahead of the contest itself. As ever, wiwibloggs will be attending the show on April 17, and today we are extra excited. That’s because over the past week, three more acts have been revealed for this year’s edition. We’ve got Nina Kraljic and Michal Szpak joining the 2016 class already in attendance, and Greece’s 2012 diva Eleftheria Eleftheriou will sing-it-out as a special guest act.
Croatia’s Nina has quickly risen to become one of the favourites for this year’s competition. “Lighthouse” is still your favourite to win the first semi final of Eurovision 2016 and we’re really looking forward to seeing what she can deliver live. Nina is also set to perform at Eurovision in Concert earlier in April, but London may be the first time we get to see her after her “final” video of “Lighthouse” is revealed. A hint at staging could be on the cards.
As for Michal Szpak, the organisers certainly seem to have a coup here. It’s the first time Poland will be at the London party since their return to the contest in 2014. Whilst “Color of Your Life” may have been a shock winner in the national final, there’s no denying Michal’s vocal talents. Those in attendance will be in for a treat!
As for Eleftheria Eleftheriou, her passion for Eurovision has never seemed to fade. She was a star performer at the Vienna Euro Club, working the crowd with a great performance of “Aphrodisiac”. We’re sure that she’s going to bring the song back to us in London and will get all in attendance singing along too!
Of course, we hope that you’ve already got your ticket – as all the general admission tickets have now sold out! If you weren’t quick enough to snatch up a ticket to the hottest gig in London, then don’t despair too much. A final, very select number of tickets will be on sale one week before the show itself. Make sure you’re following London Eurovision on Twitter for more details when that’s announced.
