In Tbilisi at the Junior Eurovision song contest a great program book was handed out looking very much like those at ADULT Eurovision. Roy of ESC Covers had each of the 16 acts sign the book and for the next days we will post it. Today we can highlight the ninth one – it is POLAND who ended with 138 points – we love the song but thought the staging could have been more powerful.

Giovanni Montalbano (Italy) has topped online voting for the second wildcard in San Marino with 388633 on the deadline at 23:59 London time. It is worth noting, that practically all of his votes were gained during the last day of the competition. In the last 1.5 hours of the voting, Montalbano had added 155,000 votes narrowly beating his compatriot GLORIA ZACCARIA, who finished with 382237, also more than doubling her vote in the last 24 hours, and counting on par with the winner during last hour of the vote.

1in360 organizers have confirmed Giovanni's victory officially.

32 singers have reached mark of 1000, 22 - of 2000, 17 of 5000, 15 of 10000, 9 of 25000, 6 of 50000, 5 of 100000, 3 of 200000 and 2 of 300000.

Nine years after the release of the last studio album, the legendary band Ich Troje presented their next release. You can now listen to the album on our website.

Album Pierwiastek z Dziewięciu (The element from nine) appeared on the market on December 8, 2017. This is the band's longplay for the past nine years. Agata Buczkowska, a young vocalist from the program The Voice of Poland, joined Michał Wiśniewski and Jacek Łągwa. The album features 17 premiere tracks, including the first single promoting the title Letnia Przygoda (Summer Adventure)

It is the last day for the artists to get likes for their videos in the San Marino second wild card. Here are the current top 10. Voting will close at midnight tonight and tomorrow this time we will look at the final totals. In brackets their totals the previous day.

02 - Gloria Zaccaria (Italy) 153606 (115324)
03 - Miguel Vicente (Spain) 142391 (101225)
04 - Julian Lesinski (Poland) 133777 (99356)
05 - Tom Hartis (France) 102882 (85067)
06 - Marcus Reischmann (Germany) 45075 (32384)
07 - Dario Mifsud Bonnici (Malta) 33038 (31892)
08 - Yana Gloushak (Russia) 30512 (26065)
09 - Stavros Pilichos (Greece) 25870 (24435)
10 - Mac Zavadsky (Poland) 22813 (22039)

We were clearly wrong when we said yesterday the race for the wildcard can only be between the top 3 with probably each of them ADDING a further 30 000 to 40 000 likes in the last 2 days. Out of nowhere someone came and jumped to position 1 - this video gained over 100 000 likes in ONE SINGLE DAY.

01 - Giovanni Montalbano (Italy) 169 008


It is the second last day for the artists to get likes for their videos in the San Marino second wild card. Here are the current top 10. In brackets their totals the previous two days.

01 - Gloria Zaccaria (Italy) 115324 (64725 - 54605)
02 - Miguel Vicente (Spain) 101225 (73545 - 50825)
03 - Julian Lesinski (Poland) 99356 (61680 - 39403)
04 - Tom Hartis (France) 85067 (58682 - 39241)
05 - Marcus Reischmann (Germany) 32384 (16900)
06 - Dario Mifsud Bonnici (Malta) 31892 (30496 - 22238)
07 - Yana Gloushak (Russia) 26065 (20957 - 15666)
08 - Stavros Pilichos (Greece) 24435 (23598 - 19709)
09 - Mac Zavadsky (Poland) 22039 (20403 -18114)
10 - Camilla Dentale (Italy) 15324 (back in the top 10)

Clearly now the race for the wildcard can only be between the top 3 with probably each of them ADDING a further 30 000 to 40 000 likes in the last 2 days.

In an interview with eska.pl after her performance on The Voice, she was asked if she would submit “Andromeda” to Krajowe Eliminacje 2018. The Polish star kept her answer short and sweet: “It is too good for Eurovision”. Fans may wonder why, if Edyta believes the song is so good, she wouldn’t take the opportunity to compete with the song, and give herself the best opportunity to win the national final. However, we can only hope she has other songs lined up for submission, if not in 2018, then in the near future. #eurovision2018 #eurovision #poland

The last time we checked in Gloria Zaccaria from Italy led with 28,571 votes, while Miguel Vincente from Spain had 26,191 and Julian Lesinski from Poland had 10,294. But by Friday at 13:30 GMT the three acts had drawn to a veritable deadlock, with each claiming more than 74,000 votes a piece. Every vote counts and you can still make the difference.

Please note: The votes are changing quickly and constantly, so the numbers will, no doubt, be slightly off by the time you read the list, which is available on wiwibloggs.com #1in360talent #eurovision2018 #eurovision @1in360talent

Organisers behind 1 in 360 — San Marino’s search for an Internet candidate for Eurovision 2018 — have crowned Emma the winner of the first wildcard. As we pause to celebrate, we thought it’d be a good time to check where things stand with Wildcard #2.

Of the roughly 557 entries currently listed on the 1in360 candidates page, a total of 69 have managed to earn more than 100 votes. Of these, just 16 have managed to secure more than 2,000 votes. And while technically any of them are still contenders, in reality this appears to be a two-voice race.

Gloria Zaccaria from Italy currently counts 28,571 votes, while Miguel Vincentre from Spain has 26,191. The next highest act — Julian Lesinski from Poland — has 10,294. #1in360 #eurovision2018 #eurovision @1in360talent

ESC Covers sent some questions to KRZYSTOF STER of Poland who is a candidate in the San Marino 2018 selection. We got the answers back via his manager AGNES.

I deal with music in my everyday life. I’m a singer - I sing, I give concerts, but I'm also a musician, instrumentalist and composer, I play many instruments (I was once known as a drummer in many bands), I compose music, I write lyrics, I create music videos, but I’m also an actor and an extra ( I play in TV series, programs, music videos and I took part in many different productions). Generally I’m a one man circus. And I’m a collector. I gather American cars and cowboy boots, I currently have 50 pairs of them;). I could write a lot of other things, because since my childhood I’ve been connected to the world of performing arts. I have sung since I was a child, then I practiced ballroom dance, then I learned playing many instruments. I've played a lot of concerts in my life. Being on stage is the most important thing for me and I chose this as a way to live. It is not easy but I do my best. I am inspired by a variety of music such as opera arias, rock' n' roll or dance music, and for a good reason I am considered "one of the best Elvis Presley voices in Poland". That is why I invent everything on my own, I do not draw inspiration from anyone else’s performances, I try to develop everything, even the appearance on the stage.

I applied to the San Marino’s pre-selection, because the process of application was easy to understand, everything was well described and clear. Unfortunately in my country everything must be difficult and till this day there is no information whether the pre-selection will take place. Besides, I think that you need to expand your options, which is why I considered this to be my next career path.

If I am chosen, I could sing in Polish but I would rather sing in English, as a language spoken globally.

Yes, I would consider this. I used to sing in a duo with the Polish opera diva, so it is not a problem for me.

At the same time, I invite you to my fanpage:

Last week SunStroke Project serenaded the 65 women vying for the title of Miss Supranational. And last night it was time to celebrate chiseled jawlines and washboard abs as the men of the Mister Supranational Contest presented their packages to the world, accompanied by the ultra-androgynous Michal Szpak.

Performing in front of 36 of the world’s most handsome men and a packed-out crowd in Krynica-Zdrój in Poland, the Eurovision 2016 entrant brought his signature style with a medley of his hit songs. With skintight, high-waisted pants and a jacket that could be mistaken as a deconstructed mirror ball, Szpak served up 80s emotion with his Eurovision hit, ‘Color of Your Life’. #eurovision #michalszpak #mistersupranational
