Final preparations are being made for this year’s sell-out London Eurovision Party which will take place on Sunday 13th April at Café De Paris!
Romania’s Paula Selling & OVI will be expecting a ‘Miracle’ as they make a return visit to London, and to perform their 2010 Eurovision song ‘Playing With Fire’. A ‘Silent Storm’ is also on the way in the shape of Norway’s Carl Espen, and we’ll ‘Rise Up’ with Freaky Fortune & RiskyKidd from Greece. Also joining us will be Ukraine’s Maria Yaremchuk who will perform her entry ‘Tick Tock.’
Former X Factor UK contestant, Spain’s Ruth Lorenzo will be ‘Dancing in the Rain’ at the London Eurovision Party 2014. Making her third consecutive appearance at the event will be San Marino entrant, Valentina Monetta. From Macedonia, the absolutely fabulous Tijana Dapčević with be taking us ‘To The Sky’. Poland’s entrants Donatan & Cleo will be treating us to their YouTube sensation ‘My Slowianie’ and Latvia’s Aarzemnieki will turn the temperature up as they have a ‘Cake To Bake’. Already one of the favourites to win, Armenia’s Aram Mp3 will perform ‘Not Alone’.
From Switzerland, Sebalter will be ‘Hunting For Stars’, and this year’s entrant from Montenegro, Sergej Ćetković will be adding a Balkan flavour to the Eurovision fun with Moj Svijet. Representing Austria, the charismatic Conchita Wurst will ‘Rise Like A Phoenix’, and Malta’s own Firelight will actually be leaving home to perform ‘Coming Home’ in London. Gaia Cauchi is our junior guest from Malta. She is the 2013 Junior Eurovision Song Contest winner and she will give a special performance of her song “The Start”.
Our special guests will be not one but two former Eurovision winners; Anne-Marie David, who will perform her 1973 winning song ‘Tu te reconnaitras’ as well as a couple of other songs you might recognise, and Linda Martin will join us from Terminal 3 and perform her 1992 winning song ‘Why Me?’. Scott Fitzgerald will persuade more fans to ‘Go’ to the Café De Paris, as he recreates his 1988 United Kingdom entry and as a special treat Marcin Mroziński (Poland 2010) will take us back in time with ‘Legenda’, and Sarbel (Greece 2007) will be saying ‘Yasou Maria’ again.
The night will once again, be hosted by the Eurovision darling Nicki French (United Kingdom 2000), and the dashing Paddy O’Connell (BBC commentator & radio broadcaster). Eurovision music to dance the night away in glitzy surroundings will also be provided by fan-favourite DJ, Dave Simmons. Doors will open at 6pm with the first artist on stage around 7pm.
This is the seventh edition of the London Eurovision Party which has moved from the “Shadow Lounge” to the more prestigious location “Café De Paris”. The event will present an opportunity for the fans to be up close and interact with the artists, and give the artists a real opportunity to connect with their fans and showcase their songs.
