GREECE – The leak of the five qualifiers for the Greek national final this morning by the ERT favourite source media outlet, let no other option for those eliminated and in the following days we will listen to the songs bidding for Lisbon but will never enter the public competition. Today Dimitris Kiklis released his bid “Odos Agapis” (Love Street) composed by Andreas Lamprou.
In the meantime, one more eliminated bid, the one by Stereo Soul and DJ Kon Cept we had their first social media reaction. Without disappointment the two guys are happy and wish all the qualifiers the best of luck. It is the second year they are trying to go to Eurovision and it seems that it’s not their thing after all (at least with the current ERT management).
BULGARIA – After two years of successful internal selections, BNT sticks to the recipe and announced that the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest participant will be again selected internally without BNT giving any more information.
MOLDOVA – Moldovan national broadcaster announced that they will organise a national selection for the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest participation in Lisbon. O Melodie Pentru Europa is gearing up where the jury and the public will share the burden of the result. It will be interesting to see if The DoReDoS will participate after their success in 2017 New Wave festival, having also the support of the Moldovan president.
THE NETHERLANDS – Is Sharon Den Adel ready to represent the country in the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest. Well the local media speculate this name (new entry in the rumour mill) especially after her official social media page is closed at the moment stating that official statement is coming soon and we all know that within the month Dutch broadcaster AVROTROS will make the presentation of the artist for Lisbon.
