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.

The tour kicks off with Milan on April 14, followed by Antwerp (April 15), Paris (April 19), Amsterdam (April 20), London (April 21), Murcia (April 25), Madrid (April 27), Munich (May 3), Stuttgart (May 4), Cologne (May 7), Hamburg (May 10), Lausanne (May 15) and finally Zurich (May 16). Tickets for his Milan show are already on sale, and tickets for the remaining shows will be available soon.

Does Mahmood sing? I mean…can someone honestly compare his limited vocal skills to Duncan’s impressive vocal range? For example, Soldi can be sung by any other singer, amateur or not. But how many cand actually sing well “Arcade”?

I’m not a singer, but I tried singing both and I found Soldi much harder than Arcade.

Singing isn’t just about who can scream louder. It’s more about who can harmoniously stay in tune and that varies according to the music genre.

Limited vocal skills? Are you drunk ? Look on youtube for the videos of Mahmood singing the Arabic song Sabry Aleel, or The sound of Silence, Remo , Il Nilo nel Naviglio, Asia Occidente, Django -Freedom. He’s a great singer.

Both songs just have very different difficulties. Whereas “Arcade” covers a bigger range (singing it well is more a question of the right key adjusted to your voice, but the melody has very smooth transitions), “Soldi” is more rythmic with rapid changes in pitch (well, “Soldi” perhaps less than “Barrio”, “Barrio” in this respect is really difficult to sing, that’s at certain points almost staccato-like, you need a lot of vocal control to hit these notes properly, and you need a lot of air, because it’s not easy to breathe at the right moments). I don’t understand why people always… Read more »

Sorry for unrelated comment, but does anyone else have problems with commenting, viewing full comments and clicking in general while on PC? For last month or so I’ve been using phone to write here. I’m using Chrome both on my phone and PC so i don’t think that’s the reason

The only thing I can say is that in Italian performance is translated with “esibizione” and it’s kinda easy to mess up with the “exibition” false friend.
Just for the records

Probably. My initial thought was that those comments were written by one and the same person. But I guess nobody is that fanatical and obsessed.

probably both are italians, ‘esibizione’ is the word for performance here and it’s a common mistranslation

I didn’t watch Duncan’s performances, but I’ve seen Mahmood’s exhibitions at “The voice of Poland” with Soldi and Barrio and both were great!
Mahmood always puts something special in every performance, the public was enthusiastic, I hope his tour will touch Poland too!
In the meanwhile, looking forward to Mahmood’s next album.
