Michela Pace gives debut live performance of “Chameleon”

Malta’s Michela Pace is one artist who has been keeping quiet in the pre-party season, preferring to work on her song in private than hit the promo circuit. But the X Factor Malta winner has finally made an appearance, giving the debut live performance of “Chameleon” in front of an enthusiastic crowd at Café Del Mar Malta. Here’s the performance from another angle. (Robyn)

Luca Hänni and Netta perform at ZDF Fernsehgarten

This year’s Swiss entrant Luca Hänni and Eurovision 2018 winner Netta performed on the German entertainment show ZDF Fernsehgarten, filmed on Gran Canaria. Netta performed her new single “Bassa Sababa”. She brought her keyboard to the stage and clearly had a great time there. In fact, she even started dancing with a lady from the audience! Bassa Sababa, everyone!

Switzerland’s Luca Hänni also performed his entry “She Got Me”. He showed off some of his choreography and the crowd appreciated every bit of it. Together with two dancers, he delivered an energetic performance. Hard dance practice really pays off! (Florian)

In a Facebook post, Serhat shares his intention to inspire Istanbul’s youth in music: “I have so much belief in youth. But when youth unites with music, nothing can stop the run! This evening, the annual fizy Highschool Music Contest will take place in Istanbul for the 22nd time in a row. I’ll be there celebrating this music feast with my song “Say Na Na Na”.

Congratulations, Duncan! (Florian) 

Kate Miller-Heidke stuns for WHO Magazine

Australia’s Kate Miller-Heidke dropped a stunning photo shoot for the Australian WHO Magazine as part of their “Most Beautiful” edition.
