LITHUANIA – Do you remember the Lithuanian duet in Eurovision 2015 where they kissed on stage during the song upon lyrics “one kiss”? Yes Vaidas Baumila and Monika Linkyte were the Lithuanian representatives. Since then a lot of people tried the same-sex kiss on the song and worked.
This time Vaidas Baumila, guest on a Lithuanian TV snow and despite his 18th place in Eurovision, performed the song but he needed someone to kiss. Vaidas calls the host, Justinas Jankevicius on stage and kisses him during the performance. Well that would have been quite successful for Vaidas and Lithuania if it happened on the Eurovision stage but still we are happy to see it happening here.
Back in Eurovision 2015 although Vaidas kisses Monika, the backing singers made of same-sex couples, kissed along the signers.

FRANCE – Amir has Benn proven one of the most recent successful French participants in the Eurovision Song Contest and everyone simply loves him (we do as well). In the meantime Paris is about to be officially announced as the host city of the 2024 summer Olympic Games after reaching an agreement with IOC and Los Angeles, CA got the 2020 ones.
Thus, Paris held “Paris A Nous Les Jeux” (Paris, The Games Are Ours!), a special concert where various French artists paid a tribute to the the hosting of the upcoming Olympic Games.
Amir performed his brand new single making the audience enthusiastic but they also loved other artists such as the 1993 Eurovision entrant Patrick Fiori, Shy’m and One Direction’s Liam Payne.
What a great and healthy way for Amir’s brand new album “Addictions” to start its promotion. more than 600,000 viewers watched the concert and almost half a million attended the open air concert in Paris.
Amir surely enjoys seeing the Parisians as enthusiast as he is. He still recalls his memories from the 1998 World Cup Triumph when his country topped the world by winning the trophy.
