EUROPE – Yes, the summer begins and June is kicking off the season. Eurovision is always a trend topic and we want to bring you the leanest news with a twist. Let’s see what’s going on in the fascinating world of the most famous contest in the world.
- Tamar Kaprelian, member of Genealogy who represented Armenian in the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest, revealed to oikotimes.com her next plans. She already released a brand new song titled “Yours To Keep” the video of which is available here and this week she is expected to release a joint song with Elhaida Dani (Albania), Elina Born (Estonia) and Maria-Elena (Greece), a true building bridges according to her.
- Kate Ryan, who not so proudly, represented Belgium in the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest wants to go back to Eurovision marking 10 years from her participation in Athens. Kate posted on Twitter her wish to get the job, representing Belgium in Sweden.
- Foreign Minister of Kosovo tweeted that his country (not recognised by many states in Europe but still an active member of the EBU) will participate in the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest marking its debut to the contest. The tweet said that the foreign minister is confirming participating but cannot tell how! Weird!
- EBU’s Ingrid Delterne confronted the national broadcaster of Bosnia & Herzegovina for not implementing the law about media and funding, urging for immediate action otherwise the national broadcaster will collapse. The broadcaster which is absent from the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest cannot afford to participate in the contest anymore and EBU is accusing them for acting as regional rivals with other national broadcasters in the country for political and regional interests instead of a true national broadcaster.
