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.
