Amsterdam calling! Last night 28 acts acts competing in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 had a chance to flaunt what they got at Eurovision in Concert. It’s the largest event of the pre-party season and returned for its eleventh edition this year. Being the first pre-party of the season, it’s considered particularly important. It can set the tone for what’s to come and gives many of the acts a chance to perform live for a braying mob of Eurofans for the very first time.
Switzerland’s Luca Hänni gave an energetic performance with fierce dancing — and an extended reframe after he had finished. Spain’s Mika showed what a natural he is when he unleashed that “La venda” realness. San Marino’s Serhat literally had everyone saying “Na Na Na”. And the Dutch entrant Duncan Laurence closed it out with an incredible live performance that seemed to justify his position as the front-runner. And those were only some of the highlights.
The show also featured several iconic Eurovision alums, including Dana International from Israel performing “Diva”. Germany’s Eurovision winner Nicole sang her winning song “Ein bißchen Frieden”, and served her unique renditions of other Eurovision classics like “Waterloo” or “Euphoria”. Dutch queens Marlayne and Sieneke also performed their songs.
But anyway: Now we want to know who you think gave the best live performance at Eurovision in Concert 2019. Cast your votes based on the performance. You can listen to most of the acts in our playlist below (sadly our camera cut out during Hungary, so we don’t have his performance, and the lights of Belgium’s show made our camera unfocused so we only have half of it as it should look. Sorry ’bout that.)
You can vote for as many acts as you’d like, but you can only vote one time, so make it count.
