Back in October Belgium and Spain revealed their Eurovision 2020 artists. Since then two more countries — Bulgaria and Cyprus — have revealed their hand, taking us up to four. As we wait for their songs to drop in the spring, let’s help pass the time by answering a very important question: which Eurovision 2020 contestant are you are most looking forward to?
Eurovision 2020 confirmed acts (as of 29 November 2019)
Flemish broadcaster VRT wasted no time in announcing the act they’ll be sending up the road in May. Hooverphonic are an internally successful trip-hop group who have been active for almost 25 years. They’ve recently teamed up with recent The Voice van Vlaanderen winner Luka Cruysberghs who brings a new energy as their vocalist. The group expect to release their song for Eurovision in February.
Spain: Blas Cantó
Spanish broadcaster RTVE surprised fans by suddenly revealing Blas Cantó as their act for Rotterdam. The singer has had two previous attempts at Eurovision — in 2004 for Junior Eurovision, and in 2011 as part of the boy band Auryn. The accomplished Spanish singer will finally get his chance in May. Blas is expected to release his song sometime in 2020.
Bulgarian up-and-comer Victoria Georgieva recently released her first-ever English-language single “I Wanna Know”. It shows how much she has evolved since she rose to fame on X Factor Bulgaria, where she finished in sixth place behind the likes of Kristian Kostov. She has an artistic, edgy look and sound, which promises to deliver a lot in Rotterdam.
Cyprus: Sandro Nicholas
Born in Germany as Alessandro Rütten, Sandro has an American father and a Greek mother. He speaks German, English and Greek. Music has been part of his life from an early age, starting with playing the drums at age four, moving on to the guitar and writing his own songs from the age of 15. In 2015, he auditioned for Supertalent — the German version of the Got Talent franchise. Sandro didn’t get far in the contest and later said he felt “the format did not fit”. But he kept working on his music and later got his break with the 2018 season of The Voice of Germany.

Bulgarian song is practically copy and paste of Sia’s tunes ?
I expected Bulgaria would have a strong return just like what they once did back in 2016! Please don’t disappoint me!
Also good luck to the other three entrants!
Sandro from Cyprus held my attention. I started to snooze during the other three.
Hooverphonic are among the biggest names ever to have competed in the contest ever so I have to excited about Belgium. Spain is also promising since they have upended their selection process and Blas is their biggest name since Edurne at least. Victoria is a safe choice for Bulgaria but I’m happy to see them say they’re not necessarily here to win because that tends to indicate a more risky song choice (and Bulgaria’s last three entries have been quality but quite safe and risk free). Only Cyprus makes me cynical because I feel like so many more artists were… Read more »
Countries I’m most excited for ranked:
1: Bulgaria – This young girl has a lot of potential. She would be great going down the indie root. This is very promising!
2: Belgium – I absolute love atmospheric/ambience groups. Belgium has a reputation of sending dark songs, so this will work!
3: Spain – He seems an ambitious/established singer, some of his songs are a bit uninspiring , but we’ll wait and see.
4: Cyprus – Never heard of him, so I can’t really comment!
i’m excited for belgium bc idk what to expect and for spain bc they seem to finally want to bring a song with hit potential rather than their usual dated entries. bulgaria and especially cyprus seem basic af
1. Belgium “Hooverphonic” – They are my number one, because I think they will send something that is commercial, but still very “Hooverphonic”, I predict they will qualify. 2. Bulgaria “Victoria” – her single “I Wanna Know” is really good and she is probably working with Symphonix so final is a granted. Hoping to see some Bulgarian, high expectations overall. 3. Spain “Blas Canto” – he is quite established, but I still don’t know which style is he going to pick. Still I think it will be one of the best Spanish entries of the past couple of years (since… Read more »
I’m really hoping the Spanish song will be good, they are always finishing in the bottom, I feel so bad for them..
no song no fun
Belgium, Spain and Cyprus !
Bulgaria is still in the shadow for me
It’s still Hooverphonic for me. I don’t know what to expect from the other three, but I think we can safely say that whatever Belgium brings to the table, it’s gonna be quality.
Hahaha same thing people talk about Senek ….
Yes, of course. Because her song did have quality.
People were talking about the song for Sennek, not the artist. Nobody knew her before Eurovision even in Belgium. And the song was really good.
Here we’re talking about a well known group that always serves quality with an interesting style.
Lets wait for the song and then we can judge, i like this group but only a few songs i like from them …
Belgium allows for the most hopes so far. Btw, does anyone know if tonight’s Estonian song reveal show can be watched from abroad?
I’m from Slovenia and I can watch it..
Me too, dear neighbor.
Where are you from? Italy?
Austria. Slovenia is my favorite neighbor country.
Really thank you haha, Slovenians love Austrians as well, we have the same mentality about stuff I think.. 😀
Yes, I think we are very much alike in many ways. More than we realize. 😉
Hooverphonic, I have the feeling that their entry will be really special.
