When the Eurovision 2018 jury ranked Melovin dead last in the grand final, his diehard fans let out an audible WTF?!
But Melovin isn’t sitting around moping. Instead the “Under the Ladder” singer is preaching the message of his song and is already on his feet and planning his next big thing.
“I was over Eurovision from day one right after the Grand Final,” he says in a statement sent to wiwibloggs.
“I simply didn’t have a chance to take even a day off. I’m putting together the show with my team for my Ukrainian tour, already working on my future album and also am preparing to voice-over one of the upcoming animated blockbusters, which I’m really excited about.”
The X Factor Ukraine series 6 winner will take his show on the road in Ukraine’s five largest cities: Lviv, Kharkiv, Dnipro, Odessa and Kyiv this summer. That final performance is almost sold out already.
That’s not his only big performance on the horizon. The singer, who takes his name from Alexander McQueen and Halloween, will also open for ZEDD in Kyiv on July 19th.
The famous producer, songwriter and DJ has worked with the likes of Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez and Lady Gaga and hand-picked Melovin as his opener.
Rubbing shoulders with bigwigs has become normal for the amateur perfumer, who recently released his first fragrance “Black Gas”.
“I met Jean Paul Gaultier at Eurovision’s final backstage,” he says. “I was so impressed to hear that a true fashion legend likes my vocal performance and staging, especially the appearance of the piano at the beginning.”
“What else do you need if you’ve been supported by such amazing talents like Jean Paul Gaultier or Verka Serduchka through this Eurovision journey? Not to mention my devoted fans all over Europe, who gave me so much support, and I will never forget it.”
