Eurovision 2017Eurovision 2017 – Three more countries have this week confirmed their participation in Kyiv: Belarus, France and the Czech Republic. BTRC, the state broadcaster of Belarus is expected to hold a national final again. France has opted for an internal selection and interested artists can apply to France 2 now.

Ceska Televizie has also opted for an internal selection for the Czech Republic and has also opened up the submission period. Email your 3 minutes song, not previously performed or published before 1st September to esc2017@ceskatelevize.cz.

At the moment there are worries that Bosnia Herzegovina will not be back in 2017 due to funding and political issues.

  1. “BTRC, the state broadcaster of Belarus is expected to hold a national final again”.
    Not entirely correct. BTRC did not say that. How will choose the representative of Belarus at Eurovision, BTRC has not decided yet.

  2. That is good that Czech Republic is in again just like for others!

    Off topic. Sirusho released a hayduki song

  3. Looks like Italy are in too

  4. I heard on journalistic grapevine Spain will be back again too of course, though will depend on whether we have a fixed government by then, for the moment seems we’ll have 3rd elections in a year on Christmas Day! but as everything seems to be running better without a government let’s hope Diana N might say yes to Eurovision?!!

  5. Good to see CR staying :-) !

  6. I have a feeling that September is usually the most… silent month in ET :P

  7. Annnnddd..the official video of “1944” is finally out :

    I liked it a lot but did not love it. I found it a tad too fast paced and some of the dance scenes in the tunnel were poorly made imo. But other than that atmospheric and dark as it should be.

    • I really like it!I like the grey colors and the fog,a suitable background for people that are displaced and feel lost.What i miss is the colorful tree of life during the song’s big climax.But they decided to keep it dark and that’s ok.

  8. My comment is awaiting moderation even though i didn’t add any emoticons.Oh,well…
