Spain’s viral miss, Eurovision legends for the summer, and advice from the press room Tunnocks wafer. Ewan Spence and ESC Insight catch up on news from the world of the Eurovision Song Contest.
We’re opening up Île de Bezençon for the summer, and inviting our favourite Eurovision people to bring their best loved Eurovision-related songs and stories. Our first guest for the 2018 seaon is Slavko Kalezić, who brings us his Song Contest love story, multiple songs from Montenegro, and leaves us in a world of divas.
As 2018 started, ESC Insight launched a crowdfunding campaign to offer our community an option to support the site as we covered this year’s Song Contest. Ewan Spence talks about how you all helped make Lisbon 2018 a Contest to remember.
As the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 is packed away in a little box, what musical earworms, hook-laden tracks, and thematic albums has this year’s Contest delivered? As summer stretches out before us, we Ask ESC Insight to look beyond the 43 to what has reached their playlist for the off-season.
Continuing our annual tradition of asking you how to improve ESC insight, it’s our Reader Survey for the 2018 season. Let us know what you liked, what you didn’t like, what you want to see more of, and everything that we haven’t thought of.
Continuing our look back at this year’s National Final selections, Ewan Spence discusses which countries made the wrong choice regarding the performers and songs to send to Lisbon for the Eurovision Song Contest 2018.
