++ Remixes for Norway, Germany and Austria ++ Spanish version for Cyprus ++ Bonnie's CD released in Germany ++ Compilation albums in all Scandinavian countries ++ And much more news...
While there is not much going on in the Eurovision news factory at the moment, we thought it was a good moment to discuss some of this year's CD/single and digital releases. Not many songs have been released on physical CD's (yet). The best resource for all information about this is the Malmö collection by Jan Götz.
Norway and Finland both selected a talented woman for Eurovision last night... No big surprises though, as they both belonged to the favourites of the evening. You can watch all entries for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest here. Sweden did have a surprising result though. Our favourite housewives are out and very unexpectedly (but deserved) Louise Hoffsten did make it straight to the final.
We have yet another busy Eurovision weekend coming up. Tomorrow Norway and Finland will select their entry for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. Sunday Bulgaria is also expected to reveal it’s artist for Malmö. Meanwhile Sweden, Hungary and Latvia continue their national quest to find their perfect acts for this year.
It seems there are currently a couple of real favorites for the Norwegian victory. It could be the song Alexander Rybak wrote for Annsofi, a slightly folk inspired popballad. It could also be Margaret Berger who jumped straight to the first place in the Norwegian iTunes top 10 last week. Her electro/rock/dance track is likely to make it to the Euroclub anyway. Last week's winner, 16 year old Adelén, did the same in iTunes this week, her very catchy latin schlager got to a second position 'only' though. Then there is still the other Solli Tangen brother contributing to a horrifying hardrock piede that won the first semi final, but is not likely enough to get enough protest votes in the final as well.
