Info and gossip round up in the Eurovision world

TURKEY – Well San Marino and Montenegro shut up after all those complaints and penalties for the Eurovision Song Contest and they are remaining in the event, preparing their participation for the 2017 edition. Unlike them, Turkey is not! Zurab Alasania from NTU, Ukraine, confirmed that Turkey is not coming back – despite the heroic efforts of the Crimean NGOs . NTU’s Alasania is only confirming the efforts to make Turkey broadcast the event . I am still thinking the smiley face of Erdogan on it! IRELAND – When you say Holograms, you automatically think Iveta from Armenia . Ireland’s 2011, 2012 participants, Edward released their new song and video. While busy been jury members in the Irish Junior Eurovision selection, let’s sing a long with them their brand new song: “Cos in my head you’re just a hologram.

In the meantime France will select internally its 2017 entry and singer out of submissions for which French broadcaster already made a call. SPAIN – Voces is also the new song by Ruth Lorenzo, the 2014 Spanish representative in the Eurovision Song Contest. Ruth has also become a widely recognized TV face after being part of the jury of Levántate TV program and won the fourth edition of Your face sounds . It is also highly tipped to have a direct involvement in the 2017 Spanish selection either as a performer either as a song writer. Rumours as usual! ARMENIA – Armenians are preparing for Malta’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest Back to Yerevan as the song for Malta will be revealed this week but we got to know the title. Tarber is the title of the Armenian entry which will be performed by Anahit and Mary on November 20th. The song is in Armenian language and penned by Nick Egibyan, while the lyrics are written by Avet Barseghyan.
