ASTANA, KAZAKHSTAN – For some years now, the huge central Asia republic of Kazakhstan has tried to join the EBU with the obvious goal of taking part to the Eurovision Song Contest. So far, the attempts have been unsuccessful but the country still has a growing interest in Eurovision.
As an example, this year’s Eurasian Music Awards (also known as EMA2014) will be held in former Kazakh capital city Almaty. On September 20th, in Central Stadium, the third edition of the ceremony will take place and one of the guest will be no other than 2012 Eurovision winner, Loreen. The Swedish singer will perform in front of a huge crowd and some already expect her to premiere some tracks from her forthcoming album.
