Forty two acts will no doubt be singing for supremacy come May. And while preparation is no doubt well underway, they should know that they may have past Eurovision stars among them – with reports suggesting former Eurovision winners Mans Zelmerlow, Conchita Wurst, Alexander Rybak and former participants Verka Serduchka and Eleni Foureira rumoured to as an interval act.
Israeli news website Israel hayom reports that these big names may perform in Tel Aviv – with each singer performing another singer’s Eurovision song.
The news finally confirms the long-time rumour that Eleni Foureira will perform as an interval act at Eurovision this year. We might just be seeing Mans rising like a phoenix, or Rybak butt-dropping to yeah yeah fiiiire.
Former Eurovision winners performing as an interval act is nothing new. As we all lighted our fire in Baku in 2012, former winners Lena, Dima Bilan, Marija Serifovic, Ell & Nikki and Alexander Rybak performed their Eurovision entry again but in a different version with a few traditional instruments.
The news coincides with rumours that American popstar Madonna is also hitting the Eurovision stage as an interval act. While nothing is confirmed yet, rumours have it that financial terms are preventing a contract from being signed. She is a material girl, after all.
