They finished 1-2 in Tel Aviv. And ever since Eurovision Mahmood and Duncan Laurence have continued to watch their respective careers blossom. And recently their worlds collided as they both performed on The Voice of Poland.
It’s the latest bee in their individual bonnets: Mahmood just came off his Europa Good Vibes Tour and won the MTV EMA Award for Best Italian Artist, while Eurovision winner Duncan Laurence recently released his second single “Love Don’t Hate It”.
Mahmood and Duncan Laurence show how it’s done
Mahmood stopped by The Voice of Poland to promote his recent hit “Barrio”. With more than 30 million streams on Spotify and another 20 million on YouTube, it’s safe to say Mahmood has fans no matter where he goes. The staging in Poland was rather minimalist, but the crowd enjoyed every second of it. Changing up a few notes, Mahmood brought variety to the performance too.
Mahmood also performed his Eurovision song “Soldi”. Once again the crowd was immediately on board and had a great response to the song. Back at Eurovision, the Polish public awarded seven points to “Soldi” in the grand final — clearly they’re still in love with the track.
Eurovision winner Duncan Laurence performed his winning song “Arcade” as well as the new single “Love Don’t Hate It”. For “Arcade”, the stage took on a blue colour, somewhat resembling the arrangement at Eurovision. Again, Duncan gave a flawless run through the song while sitting at a keyboard.
For his new single “Love Don’t Hate It”, Duncan showed great interaction with the camera. The staging included the prominent red elements from his music video. After the first chorus Duncan walks the stage, followed by enhanced moves and gestures. Just like for the performance of “Arcade”, it was well-received by the crowd.
And there’s even more Eurovision-related stardom from The Voice of Poland: Junior Eurovision winner Viki Gabor performed her song “Superhero” as well.
Mahmood is once again touring Europe
And more good news for fans of Italy’s Mahmood, as he announced his new 2020 tour. Following the success of his European tour this fall, the Italian singer will once again travel all over the continent. As his sophomore album is expected to drop in early 2020, fans can also look forward to new music from the Italian hitmaker.
