It’s the Big Five country that’s turned around its flagging fortunes at Eurovision. Now French broadcaster France 2 has revealed details of France‘s new national final Destination Eurovision. And there’s plenty of proof that they are really making an effort.

France 2 held a press conference today where they introduced the three French jury members who will help to select the acts.

In the semi-finals, the acts will be chosen by a panel of six jurors. Three will be French, while the other three will be international. The French jury consists of France’s 2016 star Amir, French-Canadian chanteuse Isabelle Boulay and French Pop Idol winner Christophe Willem. The international half will be made up of Christer Björkman (HoD Sweden), Nicola Caligiore (HoD Italy) and Olga Salamakha (HoD Belarus). The three French jurors were at the press conference and ready to share their enthusiasm for their new roles. Amir told the press conference, “I am very honoured.” #eurovision2018 #eurovision #destinationeurovision

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.

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

I hope 2018 has hot guys. 2017 was a total disappointment with Imri being the only guy I would say is good looking. Although more importantly, I hope 2018 has great songs, which was also really disappointing in 2017 (Denmark, Hungary, and maybe Italy were the only ones that wowed me. Iceland and Bulgaria were pretty good too though)


I partially agree with you: Imri was probably the only hot guy in the most traditional way, that’s fair and true. But there were a bunch of nice guys, enjoyable from many of us: Bengtsson, Navarro, Trent, Murray… but also Naber, Gabbani, Hovig, Florea. I mean, I get that there weren’t many HUNKS but I’m usually more into average, cool guys.

Speaking of songs… I’ve already written about it months ago and, without getting boring or repetitive, I’ll just say that ballads were generally better than other songs :)

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 sixth one – it is Italy who ended with 86 points –ESC Covers find the song extremely catchy.

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
