I’ve just read the following on the official facebook account:
“Dear friends!
We would like to let you know that, because of some technical issues, Eugent Bushpepa will not be part of the promotional tour for Eurovision 2018 in:
Tel Aviv, Amsterdam and Madrid
even though RTSH has confirmed his attendance 2 months ago.
In the meantime the preparations for the final performance in Lisbon continue to intensify further to bring a simple and emotional performance at the Eurovision 2018 stage on the 8th of May.”

Hey, wasn’t Eugent at LEP? I wanted so long for his performance 🙁

No, he wasn’t there. Check London Eurovision Party instagram. They already closed the party. SuRie was the last one.

Lourdes
Guest

Mine too 🙁 I thought I was in for a treat with his performance tonight, but nope 🙁 I wonder why didn’t he go!

Lourdes
Guest
Lourdes

That’s not the right attitude! His live vocals are amazing, but people who have only watched the official video don’t know that. Singing live like he did at The voice Kids, I think would make a lot of people appreciate him and his song more. Especially in London, where he would get so much visibility from Wiwibloggs.

He was absent due to some visa issues?

yayyay

I put a ? by mistake.

He had some troubles with UK visa, that’s why he was absent. Be hopefully he will be in Israel.

Oh, I’m so sorry to hear that 🙁 Why wouldn’t they give visas to artists?

Jo
Guest
Jo

To Gromee: you are dj and producer. What song from eurovision 2018/ song in general would you like to revamp? Lukas, was is weird to hear swedish (because Isabelle) in Poland while you were surounded by Polish fans?

Maybe there are some hidden fans of him out there that we don’t know of 😉 Regardless of the result in May, I can’t wait to see him perform during these pre – parties! The main reason why I follow wiwibloggs now 🙂

What do you mean, Anita, lol 🙂 They don’t have to like it, of course, there are many of us who like it 😉

Anita
Guest
Anita

Yes, it made me really a little bit frustrated, when you don’t like a song you can despite of that recognize the strong points, like his vocals, his artistic attitude, the originality or something.

Anita
Guest
Anita

at least as a wiwijury member this capability of recognition should be possibel, don’t you think

I second whoever said we should get an interview with Felix and Benjamin together, they have such a nice friendship #sandgrosso.
Also for Felix, will he continue to come back to Melfest until he wins and goes to Eurovision? What does Eurovision mean to him and how was his experience watching it as a child? Also, will FO&O ever reunite, or at least do some shows together once in a while? (Gotta Thing About You is a bop)

No, no, no, he should stay and SLAAYYY everyone on May, 8th! He might not qualify because the semi is so tough and his RO isn’t really good but one thing is certain: he will give the best performance that night!

To Rasmussen: Do you consider incorporating some of the LOTR or GoT imagery in your performance? It’s epic either way! To Michael Schulte: I love your song very much, I almost cry when I hear it. How did you decide to go with such a deep personal story? To Vanja: Veliki pozdrav iz Hrvatske! Pjesma mi je odli?na i atmosferom me podsje?a me na bajke i romane 19.st. Je li takva ‘vibra’ bila ciljana? PS. Šahovnica iz spota je zakon, razmisli o mogu?nosti ubacivanja ne?eg sli?nog u nastup jer bi moglo biti jako upe?atljivo.

*Correction (For Madame Monsieur) – Were you disappointed that SOME people….

*Yeah, I forgot that Wiwibloggs translates some Slavic letters into ?, so my question for Vanja (In English) would be was the vibe reminding of fairytales and 19th century novels intended? PS. I said I love the song and think that some chessboard imagery from the video could be very striking if he goes that way in live.

Nicki French- ‘Teardrops on the disco floor’ was a great bop! Should of charted well in the U.K. My question is what do you think about UK national final? Would you consider it again? Suzy- Quero ser tua should of be the international hit! Why did you not participate in the Portuguese national final this year? And is an album ever going to appear? Stella- Please bring some African vibe to Eurovision!!

(About Gromee and Lukas Meijer).
Poland did not decided anything. The video was made before the song become Poland’s Eurovision song.
It happened quite by chance. The artists were on a vacations, they though it was beautiful there and just said “hey, why don’t we make a video here and now?”
