Talk about a Eurovision coup! After a very cryptic tweet earlier in the week, the London Eurovision Party has revaled today that Sweden’s Frans will perform at the Café de Paris on April 17. This will be Frans’ only appearance at the five of the pre-contest preview parties. It’s a rare chance to take a very good look at how one of the contest favourites is shaping up ahead of Stockholm.
Mans Zelmerlow also performed at the London Eurovision Party last year, so it’s good to see Sweden back in town. What’s interesting to note is that the eventual winner of Eurovision has performed at the London party every year since 2013. With both Frans and Amir at the concert, would this quirk be bad news for Sergey Lazarev?
Frans is not the only Eurovision 2016 act to have been confirmed since our last update. Albania’s Eneda Tarifa will bring her “Fairytale” to London. We loved seeing Elhaida Dani perform there last year and can’t wait to welcome Eneda!
For anyone who wants to get up and boogie, then the London Eurovision team have got a real treat in store too. Following in the footsteps of her fellow Maltese JESC alum Gaia Cauchi, Destiny Chukunyere will perform her winning song “Not My Soul”. We’re sure that Destiny will get a great reception from the crowd and with Ira Losco also set to be in London, it’s fair to say that Team Malta is taking over!
