London Eurovision Party – The press event carried on this afternoon with several more of this year’s acts arriving to undertake interviews after they’d sound checked. Our next interview was with the irrepressible Ovidiu Anton from Romania who we immediately quizzed on today’s rumours about the possibly that the country cannot afford to attend this year!
We got two of the price of one with Latvia this year as Aminata (Latvia 2015) was also doing interviews as the songwriter for this year’s Latvian entry by Justs…
Justs himself was also working the room.
There was quite a buzz about the place when France’s Amir arrived and when he started singing the tones in his voice were stunning.
The late arrival of Nicky Byrne of Ireland was also a big attraction and we’d like to say we acted professionally when he arrived. We failed. Telling him I blubbed like a baby at the last Westlife gig at Croke Park may not have been my finest hour. The lovely Greg French confirmed they’d found their final backing singer.
Our final interview for the day was with Nina of Croatia, we’ll have that online for you later this week hopefully.
Thanks to everyone at the London Eurovision Party for organising the press event once more, we hope everyone enjoys the live show tonight!
