France and Netherlands sent excellent songs in 2013! Denmark was good, but I personally find that France and Netherlands were better!

So slap your friend twice!

(France ruined it with the staging and with the awkward trying to look sexy, but the song was awesome and so was her voice… and Netherlands… could be one of the best songs Netherlands ever sent! I still hear it!)

Eurovision.TV sent out a press release over the 2017 Junior Eurovision song contest.

Artists of 16 countries - Albania, Armenia, Australia, Belarus, Cyprus, FYR Macedonia, Georgia, Ireland, Italy, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Serbia, The Netherlands and Ukraine will perform in Georgia on November 26th 2017.

A new online voting format will be introduced to this year's song contest, alongside the Jury vote, allowing viewers across the world to cast votes for their favourite artists.

A change of venue will see the Junior Eurovision Song Contest take place at the Olympic Palace in Tbilisi.

Here is the full press release

9 August 2017 – Young stars from across Europe will eagerly make their way to Tbilisi, Georgia this November, as it is announced that 16 hopeful participants will perform at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2017. For the first time ever, a new voting structure will be introduced to allow viewers from around the world to vote online for their favourite artists.

Hoping to continue in their success after a win at this year's Eurovision Song Contest 2017, Portugal have returned to the Junior stage after a 10-year absence, having last competed in 2007. They will join past winners Armenia, Belarus, Italy, Malta, Russia and Ukraine in the Georgian capital along with other 2016 participants Albania, Australia, Cyprus, FYR Macedonia, Ireland, Poland, Serbia and The Netherlands. Completing the 16-strong line up will be host country Georgia, who triumphed during last year's contest in Malta.

Georgia's public broadcaster GPB will host the event at the modern 4,000-seat Olympic Palace in Tbilisi which was considered more suitable than the previously announced Sports Palace for its numerous facilities for delegations, media and fans.

All eyes will be on Georgian capital Tbilisi, with its rich arts and cultural heritage, for the 15th Junior Eurovision Song Contest, which has been organised by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and a member host broadcaster every year since 2003. The event, showcasing talented artists aged 9-14, will take place on Sunday, 26 November 2017 16:00-18:00 CET.

In a brand new change to the voting system, audience online voting will be available this year and will initially open from Friday (24/11) to Sunday (26/11). Viewers who would like to vote will be required to watch a recap of all songs, before entering the voting platform on the JESC official website. After this, voters will also have the option to watch longer 1-minute clips from each participant's rehearsal. This first round of voting will stop on Sunday (26/11) at 15:59 CET.

During the live show, online voting will start again after the last performance and will be open for 15 minutes. The final audience result will be a combination of both pre-show and live voting rounds, accounting for 50% of the total vote.

Jon Ola Sand, the EBU's Head of Live Events and Executive Supervisor of the JESC, said 'We are thrilled to be celebrating 15 editions of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Throughout the Contest's history we have seen some incredibly talented children perform, some of whom are now successful artists in their own right. The new voting system is an exciting new addition that will allow millions of viewers to take part in the show once again".

2017's winner can look forward to a bright future with last year's title-holder Mariam Mamadashvili already set for big things. After taking the crown in Malta during 2016, the 11 year-old Georgian singer has been taking private lessons at Broadway Method Academy and been accepted into a leading New York boutique talent agency.

Via deze weg willen wij iedereen vanuit het diepst van ons hart danken voor het medeleven, woorden van troost, bloemen, kaarten en andere lieve reacties na het overlijden van onze moeder Isolde. De vele duizenden reacties geven ons veel steun en kracht in deze ongelooflijk moeilijke tijd. Het gemis en de pijn zijn enorm maar we moeten proberen het een plaatsje te geven met de gedachte dat zij er altijd zal zijn.

Liefs, Lisa, Amy & Shelley XXX


Through this medium we would like to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for the compassion, words of comfort, flowers, cards, and other loving responses after the passing of our mother Isolde. The thousands of responses give us a lot of support and strength during this difficult time. The feelings of missing her and the pain are immense but we will have to try to sort through those feelings while keeping in mind that she will always be with us.

Love, Lisa, Amy & Shelley XXX


Tomorrow evening will be the usual three hour show from Radio International hosted by JP from the Netherlands. Around 22h15 he will talk live on radio with Roy van der Merwe in Johnnesburg South Africa about various aspects of Eurovision in South Africa, especially the covering of Eurovision songs in Afrikaans of which 400 plus have been done. There will be a surprise or two, like the playing of a BRAND NEW cover which done. So hopefully you will tune in.


Pre-registration to the Afri music song contest opened on Friday 4 August and will close on 3 October - so artists have a full two months to register. Pre registration is very easy, takes about 1 minute and is FREE. It is, however, important to register as soon as possible so planning can be done. It is also important for sponsors, as they are looking to see what the interest is among the various countries. We also will give promotion in the 2 months and it is obvious we can only give promotion to artists once they have registered as we will do today over about 5 hours by focusing on the first 5 SOUTH AFRICAN artists who have registered. Starting with TOBI JOOSTE who was the artist to be the 5th one to register. Tobi is a singer from Johannesburg and has been singing professionally for over 10 years. Tobi's first CD contained at least euro cover in Afrikaans - Netherlands 1981 (Het is een wonder of Linda Williams) as well as a Dutch selection song - Een beetje van dit of Vulcano. Over the years Tobi has covered several other Euro songs. He has also done original songs successfully. We wait to see what songs Tobi will enter when song entries open in November.

After winning The Voice Netherlands, OG3NE went ahead and released their debut album 'We Got This' the album has now achieved a Gold certification and sold more than 20,000 copies in The Netherlands.

Congratulations OG3NE for achieving this feat!

Today I heard “I can’t go on” playing in a fast food and I always feel such a wave of joy when I hear Eurovision entries playing in different parts of the city, in shopping centers, supermarkets, restaurants, or blasting from people’s cars :)

Wow that’s so cool!! I once heard Malta’s 2014 entry Coming Home at my local fast food which is quite weird because it’s a Maltese song from 3 years ago.

It always feels so nice :D

I often hear the Sound of Silence, Birds, and Only Teardrops in the supermarkets ^^

It always feels nice :)

…of course, we hear Blanche and Loïc all the time everywhere, but they’re local singers, so we’d be hearing them anyway x))

Still, it’s always nice ^^

A radio here really likes to play Heroes.

So do I, honestly.

one time, i heard “Glorious” by Cascada (Germany 2013) play at H&M aka my favorite store.

Blanche’s “City Lights” is very overplayed on the radio in Lithuania

Update : Yodel it is also a thing on a Lithuanian radio

All these are happy news :D

I think we need to promote European artists from other countries more :)

Which is why I’m always so happy to hear Eurovision artists :) Måns was very popular in France! Especially “Should’ve gone home” that you could hear on every radio a gazillion times a day. That makes me happy (even though I wasn’t a fan of the song, to be honest xD I loved Heroes though!) :)

i heard j'ai cherché on french canadian radio last year when i was on vacation

I heard Fiumi di Parole and Occidentali’s Karma in a restaurant. BACK TO BACK.

Once i heard Say Yay in a clothes store and i freaked out

I once heard Calm After The Storm (Netherlands 2014) in a hotel restaurant in New Zealand. This year.

I also heard Insieme 1992 in an Italian restaurant here in Perth.

The only other eurovision songs I’ve heard on the radio here are Tonight Again and Sound Of Silence, which isn’t surprising given they’re by established Australian artists. Although I have heard UK 1996 here, but again an Australian artist.

Not actually eurovision, but a couple of weeks ago I heard No Vacancy playing in a shopping centre and I was very surprised to hear a non english song being (that’s not despacito)

¡Feliz cumpleaños, Massiel, happy birthday! The very first Spanish Eurovision winner celebrates her 70th birthday today, 2 August. At the 1968 Eurovision Song Contest, held in London, United Kingdom, Massiel represented her home country with the song “La La La”, written by Ramón Arcusa and Manuel de la Calva. At the end of a nail-biting voting, she beat pre-contest favourite Cliff Richard (“Congratulations”), to second place by just one point. Massiel went on to gain international chart success with the song, reaching #5 in Norway, #8 in Austria and Switzerland, #12 in Germany, #15 in the Netherlands, and #35 in the United Kingdom with the English version “He Gives Me Love”. Watch again her performance of “La La La” at London’s Royal Albert Hall on 6 April 1968 here… all the best, Massiel!

In recent years the Netherlands has not brought promo singles to Eurovision. This year, according to our knowledge, they brought nothing to promote their entry LIGHTS AND SHADOWS by OG3NE. We had seen some promo item that probably was handed out at the AMSTERDAM event. To not have the Netherlands spot in the library stay empty, we had this promo single designed.

We start today with a new daily series with will probably stretch over 100 days to look at various EUROVISION composers but at OTHER songs they have composed. Often a Euro composer has just made it with one song in Eurovision but has had many others released and some even were bigger hits.

The first one is PIERRE KARTNER of THE NETHERLANDS. ESCCovers likes the song he wrote for SIENEKE called IK BEN VERLIEFD (SHA LA LIE). It was the entry of the Netherlands in 2010.

The song we look at is ALLEEN DROMEN DOEN WE APART (The only thing we do apart is dreaming) sung by the Dutch duo of Frank & Mirella. The single came out in 1994.

The Netherlands have been competing in #Eurovision since 1956 and have won the contest 4 times. They have contributed many great songs throughout the years. Which are your top 3 Dutch ESC entries?

'Vandaag hebben Lisa, Amy en Shelley van OG3NE en hun vader Rick, gesteund door naaste familie en vrienden, in besloten kring afscheid genomen van hun geliefde Isolde.

In Dordrecht, bij crematorium Essenhof, vond een intieme afscheidsdienst plaats waarin de meiden van OG3NE en hun vader persoonlijke toespraken hielden, vol met mooie herinneringen en levenslessen. Vanzelfsprekend speelde muziek een grote rol tijdens de dienst. Liedjes waar het hechte gezin bijzondere herinneringen aan had, en natuurlijk ‘Lights and Shadows’ waarvoor moeder Isolde de inspiratiebron was.

Zang was er van ZO! Gospel Choir en Jeroen van der Boom, die zorgde voor een bijzonder moment, met het nummer ‘Beeld Zonder Geluid’ wat hij ooit bij De Beste Zangers voor OG3NE zong.

Met een voorgedragen speech richtte Isolde het woord tot haar dochters, echtgenoot en familie. De immer positieve Isolde stak de aanwezigen op geheel eigen wijze een hart onder de riem voor de toekomst en moedigde haar gezin aan hun missie voort te zetten om de wereld een klein stukje mooier te maken.

Met de emotionele en bijzondere gedenkdienst heeft het gezin op waardige wijze afscheid genomen van hun grote voorbeeld en liefde’ aldus Benno de Leeuw (manager van OG3NE).
