On Friday 3 April, the EBU launched the very first episode of Eurovision Home Concerts. The series sees past and present-day song contest stars try to make our lives a little bit easier during lockdown by throwing mini-concerts from their homes.

And this Friday, 10 April, we’ll get to see yet more artists perform their competing song along with a cover song chosen by fans.

This week, seven artists will welcome viewers on Eurovision’s official Youtube channel. Fans could vote for what songs they want to see covered on Twitter and Instagram.

The episode will premiere on 10 April 17:00 CEST on Youtube. Stay tuned y’all!

Eurovision Home Concerts: Episode two – 10 April

Daði og Gagnamagnið – Iceland 2020

Iceland’s sweethearts, Daði og Gagnamagnið will perform their “Think about Things”. For the cover song, fans can choose between Netherland’s 1975 winner “Ding-a-Dong” or Ireland’s 2011 sugar-pumped twin entry “Lipstick”.

Montaigne – Australia 2020

The reigning Eurovision queen from Down Under will sing “Don’t Break Me”. And Montaigne has decided to dive into this year’s list of songs and take on either Italy’s “Fai Rumore” or Switzerland’s “Répondez-moi”.

Vasil – North Macedonia 2020

North Macedonia’s own Vasil will perform “You” and choose one of two former winners. Greece’s “My Number One” (2005) or Israel’s “Toy” (2018).

Aksel – Finland 2020

Finland’s Aksel, who, despite singing about “Looking Back”, is also looking forward to your choice of his cover song,. It will be either Finland’s 2011 entry “Da Da Dam” or Norway’s all-conquering 2009 entry “Fairytale”.

Gjon’s Tears – Switzerland 2020

He may not be in Rotterdam, but Gjon is determined to allow us to enjoy Switzerland’s first French entry in ten years as well as performing either one of Switzerland’s most beloved winning entries. The choice is between “Refrain” (1956) or “Ne Partez pas sans moi” (1988).

Jamala – Ukraine 2016

She came, she saw and she won in 2016. Although she may be singing from her own living room, Jamala will definitely bring “1944” to life nonetheless. And she also wants to give “Euphoria” (2012), “Arcade” (2019), “Amar Pelos Dois” (2017) or “Heroes” (2015) a worthy go.

Leonora – Denmark 2019

She was cute as a button in Tel Aviv and still is! Leonora is in lockdown like most of us, but she knows that “Love is Forever” But what about the cover song? The options are “Dansevise” (Denmark 1963), “Talking to You” (Denmark 2005), “Amar Pelos Dois” (Portugal 2017) or “Satellite” (Germany 2010).

Eurovision Home Concerts: Episode One

We’ve already visited Ryan O’Shaughnessy (Ireland 2018), Tamara Todevska (North Macedonia 2008 and 2019), Slavko Kalezic (Montenegro 2017) and Rasmussen (Denmark 2018) in their home studios or living rooms.

By the way, everyone, I’m sorry if I got a bit vitriolic in defending the EBU’s decision before. I do think some people are being irrational in their disappointment, but I understand where it’s coming from and am empathetic.

Well we have missed out on hearing Leonora covering Denmark 2005. One of the most beautiful songs sent by Denmark and the Danish version is even better

I know right? An incredibly underrated song. I mostly know the English version but I’m sure the Danish version is also good. The people doing the fan vote never do the research. They always just go for the most recognizable option and deny themselves cool versions of Eurovision’s many hidden gems.

At least Gjon’s Tears is forcing them to pick a classic.

I mean you don’t have to speak the languages fluently to sing the songs

It’s Leonora*
I feel like old entries will never be chosen…
I seriously want to hear Dansevise in one of the episodes
Such a great song and people barely talk about it
But hey! Jamala’s gonna be there! My favourite singer (and winner obviously) ever 🙂

Dansevise is one of my all-time favourite Eurovision entries. So haunting and modern for its time.

I feel like the older ones are secretly the ones the artists want to perform. Like how Brazil was one of Slavko’s options.
