Last year organisers of Eurovision in Concert celebrated their 10th anniversary with their biggest-ever event held inside the stunning AFAS Live.
And, building on that momentum, organisers have wasted no time in announcing the date of the next edition. So mark your calendars, book your flights and start looking into reservations on airbnb: 6 April 2019 is officially in the diary! Details on location, ticketing and more are coming soon.
The most recent edition of the event saw 32 acts from Eurovision 2018 performing their tracks live in front of thousands of screaming Eurovision fans.
It was a thrilling evening that offered several acts their first chance to perform live in front of an Eurovision audience since being selected. Chief among them was Albania’s Eugent Bushpepa, who won first place in our poll asking readers who had the best live performance of the night. Of the 20,659 votes cast, he earned a staggering 2,620 — or more than 10%.
He wasn’t the only highlight, of course.
Emilie from France’s Madame Monsieur grew ill ahead of the show so couldn’t perform with her partner Jean-Karl. Thankfully the UK’s SuRie was happy to extend a hand across La Manche and learned the vocals of “Mercy” in just 24 hours.
Her performance helped her win over countless new fans and proved that she could work a variety of genres beyond “Storm” and was a reminder that her voice is on point.
Ahead of the concert I interviewed the stars along with fellow wiwiblogger Lucie.
So much went down in the interview room, but one highlight was definitely Alekseev revealing that he had never met his biological father and that he hoped Eurovision would bring them together.
Another highlight? Dancing with Australia’s Jessica Mauboy. The “We Got Love” singer won us over yet again with her bubbly personality and ease in front of the camera. She proved she wasn’t just a pop princess, but a princess of the people.
