On May 11, Eurovision stars and fans will #ComeTogether at Stockholm’s Hard Rock Cafe for the inaugural #WiwiJam. The event will run from 6pm until late. The party has now officially sold out, but for those who have reserved tickets, entry is totally free! You can come and listen to our stars live, meet the team behind wiwibloggs and absorb the atmosphere of one of Stockholm’s premier music venues. Be sure to bring your life jackets, because we’re going to be riding a #LoveWave…
IVETA MUKUCHYAN AT THE #WIWIJAM
Our thirteenth confirmed act has been the talk of the press centre since her breathtaking performance of her 2016 entry “LoveWave”. She’s the woman, the icon, the goddess — it’s Iveta Mukuchyan!
She rose to fame in 2009 when she participated in the Armenian version of Pop Idol, and her career has moved from strength to strength since then. In 2012 she entered The Voice of Germany, and the same year she won the title of “Sexiest Armenian” – an achievement fully supported by her win in our Eurovision’s Next Top Model Semi-Final.
Experimental songs are always divisive, but Iveta still managed to achieve a very respectable score with our Wiwi Jury. She left several of our jurors absolutely smitten. As one of our jurors wrote:
“This isn’t a LoveWave, it’s a LoveTsunami! Iveta works her smokey, powerhouse vocals to great effect, giving us a contemporary sound with flashes of rock goddess.”
In her first rehearsal on Wednesday she blew the other acts out of the water with her explosive stage presence.
Prepare yourself for the power that is Iveta as we #ComeTogether in the Hard Rock Cafe for our #wiwijam.
